Flyers Wings and Grill – West Orlando

Flyer’s Wings and Grill has some of the best wings in Orlando if you are willing to brave the trip out to West Orlando. The place has been serving these tasty, fried bits of chicken wings for over 20 years on the northwest corner of Kirkman Road and Colonial Drive in its yellow and red building. It looks a bit run-down on the outside, and on the interior things look a bit like your charming aunt’s living room that hasn’t seen a renovation since the ’80s, but hey it’s all about the wings right?

Their wings, though they appear small, are actually quite meaty and fresh, crispy yet also tender. The sauces my companions are chose were the lemon pepper, medium, and sweet and tangy. The favorite of the bunch was definitely the lemon pepper, a delicious buttery flavor that was one of the best chicken wing sauces I have had. Our attentive and friendly waitress let us know that one of the most popular sauce choices was the lemon pepper, hot, and garlic mix, which I will definitely try next time. Overall the wings were fantastic and I would definitely come by to have the wings again.

The sweet tea at Flyer’s was also quite delicious, with the perfect mix of tea and sugar, not too overly sweet and not too bitter from the tea. We ordered extra cups of these to go.

They have an “all you can eat” wings night on Monday nights that is really popular as well.

Check Flyer’s out sometime if you want some great wings and don’t mind the dive-y digs.
