This could get messy. Bonnie's Grill, on Fifth Avenue between First and Garfield, is one of those restaurants that every neighborhood needs. Part lunch counter, part college-style hangout, they're renowned for top-notch spice-rubbed, grilled black Angus sirloin burgers, and, of course, the wings. Never frozen, fried till golden (I'd recommend ordering them extra crispy), and doused in a sauce that's as spicy as you like. And there's a good reason that these wings are so good: owners Anthony Bonfilo and Mike Nabor hail from Buffalo. They've also brought a regional specialty with them that's nearly impossible to find in the city: beef on weck, which pairs hot roast beef drenched in jus with a salt- and carraway-dusted roll.
No matter what you order here, one thing's for certain: you're going to need extra napkins.
