Best Hot Wings San Jose CA

 / Best Hot Wings San Jose CA

For the last 20 years, Smoke Eaters has been serving up the best hot wings San Jose CA residents can find.  We buy the largest wings on the market.  They are always fresh – never frozen.  We cook them to order and then shake them up in one of our famous Smoke Eaters sauces.  Of course, they are always garnished with celery and a choice of ranch or blue cheese dressing.  The end result is the best hot wings San Jose CA residents have come to love!

Originally, Smoke Eaters had seven wing sauces or as we referred to it – seven levels of heat.  Our original seven levels are Mild, Traditional, Atomic, Nuclear, Traditional Death, Four Alarm and Inferno.  These seven sauces put us on the map and gained Smoke Eaters the reputation as the place for hot wings in San Jose CA.  Over the years, we added a number of new sauces to the lineup.  On the mild end of the spectrum, we introduced Garlic Parmesan, Honey BBQ and Tia Zing.  Not wanting to ignore our hot wings San Jose CA fans who like it a bit hotter, we added Honey Sriracha and Fiery Garlic.  Both sauces carry a fiery kick and an incredible flavor profile.  For those wing lovers that just can’t help but suffer a bit every time they stop in, we introduced our famous Mango Habanera sauce.  It starts out sweet and then smacks you upside the head with a healthy dose of Habanera.  All thirteen of our sauces are made in-house with only the finest ingredients.

Smoke Eaters is also proud to serve up the best chicken tenders in the Bay Area.  These huge strips of premium white meat chicken are battered and fried to order.  Here is the best part, they come with a choice of dipping sauces, which includes all of our thirteen wing sauces.  To really take it to the next level, Smoke Eaters offers up our hot wings San Jose CA fans the option of our chicken tenders smothered in wing sauce.  We call these Devil Tenders.  We dare you to eat three Devil Tenders, Fries and a Craft Beer and not walk away with a huge smile on your face.  Simply impossible!!

Nothing puts out the heat of a great wing sauce like an ice cold beer. Nobody understands this better than Smoke Eaters.  To satisfy both the hot wings lovers and the beer lovers, Smoke Eaters has an amazing selection of domestic, micro and craft beers on tap.  Hot wings San Jose CA geeks can choose from 24 taps in our Downtown location at 29 S.
