I have been out on the search for the best Buffalo wings in town for quite sometime. I tried the wings from all the usual suspects or most of the usual suspects in town. I went to Hooters, Wing House, Buffalo Wild Wings, Ale House, Millers Field, tried the smoked wings at 4 Rivers, Flyers, Bloodhound Brew and just too many other bars and restaurants to list. Why? Simply because I wanted to find the best Wings in town.
After trying place after place sports bar after sports bar dives diners and drives after dives diners and drives I kept coming back to one place for the Wings. I am talking about Josie’s Pizza and Wings. Josie’s Pizza & Wings is located on South Hiawassee Rd in the Metro West area.
These wings $8.99 (10) was succulent, crispy and are fried to perfection and are made to order every time. Just like the 1964 buffalo style recipe Josie’s Wings are not breaded. Their rich buffalo sauce is made fresh on the premises daily. This recipe and their wings at Josie’s are the closest thing to the actual Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY. These wings are that good in my humble opinion. I also equally loved their Butter Garlic wings. They were fried to the requested well done, extra crispy. You could taste the butter and garlic flavors with every bite. The wings are simply very good! The service was attentive and friendly on all visits, the staff members seemed genuinely happy to be there. All the HDTVs are centrally located, great viewing in all areas of the restaurant. Great place to watch your favorite game. They have a regular bar area when you first walk in on the left. They have plenty of high tops and regular table seating. They only serve beer and wine only. Parking was fine no issues. Priced right always a plus.
This sports bar is not your average sports bar located in Metro West. Josie’s Pizza & Wings has been around for 20 yrs. There are reasons for this. They make a good quality pizza pie and they make the “Best” wings in town. Forget about it!! Why go to the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY when we have Josie’s!
Josie’s is located at 1225 South Hiawassee Rd, Orlando, Fl 32835.

My runner up for Best Wings in town was from Bloodhound Brew. Bloodhound Brew is located at the corner of Kirkman Rd and Conroy Rd. I really like their Grilled Wings. I had mine made with their Bloodhound style sauce
The NFL season and the College Football season is right around the corner and so is the Olympics. Do you need a nice new place to watch your favorite game? Well, the Orlando area has a new Sports Bar in town. I am talking about Miller’s Field.
Miller’s field is owned or co-owned by Craig Miller. You might recognize that name. Craig Miller is the former CEO of the popular successful Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse chain. After leaving his position at Ruth’s Chris , Craig Miller was also a political candidate for the 6th Congressional district. Craig has been working with his son Jeffery on the Miller’s Field restaurant location at the Dellagio Town Center off of Sand Lake Road or commonly known to locals Restaurant Row. Miller’s Field is where the old City Fire restaurant was. The other location or first location of Miller’s Field is in San Diego, CA.
I recently made a trip over to Miller’s Field. The place is about 8500 square feet and has over 50 HD TVs spread out around the restaurant. It is a classic sports bar and restaurant and it’s geared toward the sports enthusiasts. They have a great selection of beers and have a full bar.
My guest and I started with the Fire Cracker Shrimp $9. Our server articulated this starter was like the Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer from Bonefish Grill. The shrimp was lightly breaded, flash fried, coated with a sweet tangy lightly spicy sauce, and served over lettuce. Bang Bang is still #1.
We also tried the Smoked Wings (10) $8.5. The menu states they are lightly smoked and finished crispy. The wings are served with Ranch or Blue Cheese dressing. We elected to have them prepared Buffalo style with Blue Cheese dressing on the side.
The server also recommended their Burgers. Miller’s Field Burgers $9 are prepared medium well unless otherwise specified. The burgers come with their sweet and salty chips. I elected to try their natural cut fries $3.5. The burgers are served with a homemade soft bun, lettuce, tomato, Thousand Island dressing, choice of cheese with a fresh or grilled onion. You can add a fried egg for 1.5.
Miller’s Field House is a great place to watch a game and grab a beer and hang out with your friends.
Extra Mentions- Plenty of parking available (outside or garage parking no charge-valet close by as well) service was good; server was very attentive and friendly. Indoor outdoor Bar is available. TVs were all in great strategic locations. Opens at 4pm during the week, closes at 2am, serves lunch on the weekends and closes at the final buzzer.
