Local restaurants were awarded for having the very best hot wings in the Hudson Valley.

On Saturday some of the best restaurants in our area assembled at The Ramada Inn in Fishkill to battle it out in front of hungry hot wing fans from all over the Hudson Valley. The jam packed crowd got to sample the very best wings and voted for their favorite.

This year's People's Choice Award went to Joe Christianos for their Sweet Thai Spice Wings.

Our esteemed panel of judges named the Sweet Onion Brew House the Grand Champion for the second year in a row.
