West Towne Pub's wings are awesome and extra meaty! They get my vote.

Extra meaty?
I'm guessing they're buying their wings from Farner-Bocken like everyone else.
Most restaurants buy from Sysco or Farner-Bocken. It's all the same product.

I just drove past Okoboji Grill here in Ames and I caught part of the message on their sign. It said something like "4 cent wings all Wednesday." That can't be right can it?

My vote for best hot wings is Okoboji Grill even if they aren't 4 cents a piece.

What makes a hot wing the "Best" hot wing?

To me its the flavor of the sauce. It has to be a sauce not a dry, powdery rub to be a real hot wing IMO. I've had hot wings that melted my eyes before but they had a flavor of what I would think battery acid would taste like.

I stopped by and had about half a dozen of their wings last night. They were hotter than usual but tasted good. I couldn't eat any more they were too hot.

BTW, they were $0.45 per wing.
