There will be a panel of judges, including Tucson Foodie’s Mark Whittaker, tasting and determining who wins the 2023 “Best Wings in Town” trophy and cash prize.

“Don’t wing it, Tucson…bring it! Crunchy, drippy, mild, or hot, I am ready to see who has the bones to make the cut,” said Whittaker. “Good luck and may the flats or drums be ever in your favor.”
