    Sweetwater is where I take people to blow their minds. Their wings are on a level of their own. I will never go to Buffalo Wild Wings after eating their wings.

    Everyone talks about the wings, but the ribs are where it's at. Get a full slab and they throw in wings for free. Really friendly atmosphere and cozy spot for lunch or dinner any time.

    These are my favorite wings anywhere. I struggle to eat wings anywhere else because they are not the same. Get the Wing and Strip combo with seasoned fries.

    This place is no frills, but it has a reputation for solid food and beer in the bottle. Why do diners really love it though? Four words: Best Wings In Detroit. [Eater 38 Member]
