    Bird's Nest serves some incredibly solid wings: juicy, flavorful, and crisp. Even the celery and blue cheese were good. And at just 70 cents per wing, that's a serious deal.

    Great wings for 45 cents on Thursdays. $8 pitchers of miller or miller hi-life. Good place to watch the hawks game if you can snag a seat!

    Best wings in Chicago. Occasionally hard to find a seat, but otherwise my favorite dive bar in the city.

    If you come for dollar burgers you have to order a beer. Just a FYI since they don't tell you that beforehand

    Wings are delicious and make it worth coming to this otherwise lame bar with typically disappointing service.
