Just a month after The Daily Meal recognized five Connecticut pizzas as among the country's best 100 - including #1 entry Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana - the Nutmeg State has made it to another of the website's national roundups. J. Timothy's is #2 on their list of America's 25 Best Buffalo Wings.
The popular Plainville joint stood out for its "dirt wings," explains Daily Meal editors, "...where they get a dose of sauce both before and after they head into the deep fryer. Usually a recipe for an acrid, burnt-tasting wing, these guys have mastered the art form and the result is a depth of flavor that just doesn’t exist elsewhere. "
For the record, the list also includes the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, where the legendary snack was invented. (And they're at #3.)
"We've been ranked #2 as Best Buffalo Wings...IN THE USA!! What?!? We're shocked, honored and almost speechless. Wow. Thank you! We're #2!" J. Timothy's responded on its official Facebook page.
