I was leery of ordering delivery from these guys based on the last review despite having many great experiences with this location. (Wow, I can't believe such things have so much impact). That said, I decided to go ahead and try their delivery. I have eaten their wings at least 2-3 times per month consistently for the past 12 (only take-out) and have encountering only a few minor problems. I was ready to simply go pick up yet another take-out order but "Deadwood" was coming on so I decided to make the call. They were the fastest delivery I have ever experienced in my life. I am talking 10-15 minutes tops. Wings were perfect! Extra Sauce on the side as requested, and still hot. I ordered pretty late though so I doubt much else was happening there to compete with my order and it was a Sunday night which had to help. Anyway, they are the best wings in my neighborhood for the money. Feel bad for the guy posting before me who had to wait two hours for food.

Before ordering, I asked how long they thought it would take to get to my place. They estimated 35-40 minutes, so I went ahead and ordered. After waiting one hour, called for an estimate, they said any minute. One and a half hours into the order, called again--he said the delivery guy was right there. Finally, TWO HOURS after ordering, the delivery guy showed up. Worried the wings & fries would be soggy, I called the restaurant while the delivery guy was at my door. I offerred to tip the delivery guy and not pay, he said no, so I asked for 50% off, still said no. Finally paid for the wings because we were starving. They were cold, soggy, and low on sauce. The guy manning the phone couldn't understand what he did wrong. If he had given an honest answer about whether the wings would be cold and how far away they were, we could've cancelled our order and called somewhere else. I've had nothing but good service and food from the UES location.

We love wings, but won't be back to Atomic Wings. The wings were dry and overfried. Too bad :(

OK, I moved here six months ago from the land of New England, where beer and buffalo wings are next to Godliness. I actually became depressed about not being able to have good wings about a month ago and began the quest. I live on the lower east side, where there's NOTHING. So I hiked it up to the East Village location where I discovered the quality of wings I left behind (and the most complimentary bleu cheese - you know what I mean if you've ever had the nasty stuff that makes you crave the stand-in ranch). The only critique I have is the price - I'm used to $.10 wing specials and $6.50 baskets of 10. Whatever, I'm over it. Go without for 6 months and you'll pay it. Cheers!

These are the best wings I've had on this side of the city. Living on the lower east side, you don't have many places that are extremely good. This is my temple! I wait every week for sunday to come around just so we have wings to eat. The chicken littles are good too, if your not much of a guy for bones.

These wings are some of the best in the city...and the buffalo chicken sandwiches are great too.

I am a chicken wing expert. I'm a true master: you can check my credentials. Born and raised in Buffalo, I've ate thousands of these little forkers all my live long life. Me and chicken wings go way back, yet I'm not fat at all. I just love them, and as a result, they treat my bod right. Anyways, I've lived in NY for five long years and I was always itching to catch cheap JetBlue flights home, ostensibly to get up with my boys but really on the low just to eat buckets of wings. I've even taken them on the plane. It's like that. Anyways, New York wings were always straight bullshit. (Good rule: if they're called "Buffalo Wings", you don't want them. REAL wings don't need to front and represent something they don't even know.) Then some friend hipped me to this spot and I went buckwild. Dude, I probably spent three hundred dollars on these things one summer. (And still rocked a slim 155 lb. frame, ladies.) The secret is the owner went to school in Buffalo and came back with the genius idea all Buffalo stoners think of but only a guy from NY could ever actually pull off: sell REAL wings to the world and get rich. I'm proud to report he pulled it off and these little jammies is super good. I cop a bucket of these for every Bills game, Hallmark holiday and religious ceremony and dude, Riley, I ordered mine in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl and they came in like fifteen minutes like what. Eat these wings yall.
