The Berwyn Development Corporation's (BDC) Berwyn's Best competition began in mid-January and was fixed on finding the best wings. Ten establishments with wings on their regular menus competed to make it into the Top 5 of wing-tossing establishments. These five local haunts submitted their fan favorite wings for the second round of voting and now the vote is in! The winner is Cigars and Stripes BBQ Lounge for their Smoked Wings: 7 wings hand cut, rubbed and smoked. Each serving of wings comes with corn salsa & garlic bread and your choice of bleu cheese or ranch on the side.
