If you're on a mission to hit hole in the wall chicken, burrito, and burger joints then you better add Chicken Lips to your short list. And besides that, how can you not smile when you hear a restaurant with the name Chicken Lips? This is a non-descript house located a few miles from Madison, WI. It's very casual inside... More

This is a little hole in the wall place with AMAZING wings. The staff is really friendly. The other food we got was good as well, but the wings are a MUST. Really great little gem.

The wings have a to die for flavor. However they are not the best quality wings I've ever had. Both trips to chicken lips the service has greatly lacked. They were very busy both times though. Felt under staffed a bit.The blue cheese is by far the best I've ever had. I can eat the blue cheese like pudding an... More

Chicken Lips is what it is. A dive bar. You need to know the process. Menu on the wall. Order at the bar, and pay. Cash only. Fifteen minutes later the wings are delivered to your table. The wings are a lot better than you would expect. I like the original, and my wife like the dry rub. Onion rings... More

If your going for atmosphere or want something fancy keep looking. If you want cold beer and the best wings around look no further. 4 flavors to choose from but about the best wings I've ever had. And they are not the tiny hummingbird wings I've had at some places -- these are nice size and tasty.

I had "original" wings - with a rub plus a just-spicy-enough sauce. (The owner told me that habanero powder could be sprinkled on to the eaters preference/tolerance!). My wife had the wings with rub. She said they are the best she's ever had - and this is from a certifiable chicken wing freak who's eaten them on four continents. The... More

This small bar offers great chicken wings and pub chips. We had both with their dry seasoning. The blue cheese dip is also very tasty. The bar is small with bar seating and a few tables. They did not a large selection of wine but they did have a varieties on hand. The service is both friendly and efficient. It... More

This place does have the best wings I've ever eaten. Dry rub is definately the best. Typical bar food otherwise. Owner is a little eccentric but nice guy. Don't blink as you drive down hwy N, or you'll miss the place. Definately worth stopping for.
