Wings can be a great snack or very filling meal, depending on what you are looking for. And they are great any time, whether you have the late-night munchies or need some lunch or dinner. For busy college

students, a place that delivers is preferable but for those who want to get out and make a night out of it, plenty of restaurants and bars in the Worcester area have some terrific wings and tenders to offer.

Wings Over Worcester

Though a chain, the acclaimed restaurant Wings Over maintains a local feel by the taking the name of the city in which it is located. And it's a favorite of Worcester college students for good reason. Whether you're looking for a quick late-night snack for delivery or a full meal, Wings Over offers a number of size options of both boneless and regular wings to quench whatever appetite you have. There are a multitude of savory flavors available for toppings, including five different types of Buffalo sauce. The honey bbq and honey mustard wings are a personal favorite. 1 Kelley Sq, Worcester, 508-421-9464. wingsover.com
