Sunday football at the bar with a giant plate of wings is like milk & cookies to a preschooler!
And sports bars at the Jersey shore DO NOT disappoint. Classic spicy buffalo wings, sweet BBQ, garlic parmesan or teriyaki there’s something for every wing lover.
Although we have our personal favorites, there are so many options out there. So we encourage you to check out your favorite local spots and weigh in with us this football season.
