You can’t go wrong regardless of your flavor - this place knows the secret of how to deep fry a meat that slides off the bone chicken wing, Zesty Garlic is my favorite, enjoy - and don’t judge a book by its cover - inside this clapboard sided chicken shack is a masterpiece and the employees are very kind and service oriented- full production on the weekends prepare to wait 15-25 minutes depending on arrival but it’s worth the wait.

Really good chicken wings with great sauce options. Sweet potato waffle fries are something you must get with your wings.

Get the vegan wings. They are better than any vegan wing or other imitation meat product I've seen on the market. Not sure where they get it or if them make them in house but they are great!

This place has outstanding wings .. If you are looking for HOT and spicy wings wings here the place .. the veg. Option of wings were very good also .. the sweet potatoes waffle fries were a little over cooked and very dry but were still good .. No sit down or inside service and they bring it to your car ..and everyone wore mask .. No bathrooms for customers at This time..

This is our favorite wings place. They're doing a great job with Covid, and we love them. My go to is the Sweet Thai Coconut Chili, and my husband's is the Zesty Garlic Parmesan. So good!

I can't ask for anything more. Good sized wings, consistent flavor, never over or undercooked. I love the vibe. Wing flavors are limited compared to other local places - that's the reason for 4 stars.I've never had an issue with the wait. I call ahead and my food has always been ready pretty much on time. If theres a 5 min wait, oh well. I'd rather they be hot than sitting. And I'm usually there for late night munchies (they are one of the only late night spots to get food in the area) so I'm never necessarily in a rush.

My favorite wings in the Triangle! Staff are really friendly and service is fast. I always get the lemon pepper seasoning on my fries and it is SO good.

Best wing joint in town -- wherever you're driving from, it's worth it. We've tried all the dry rubs and enjoy them -- lemon pepper & garlic parm are our favorite! Still working through wet rubs - teriyaki, honey BBQ, and buffalo are great. The spicier varieties of buffalo sauce are hot but still have good flavor. Our kiddo LOVES their boneless wings and waffle fries. Wings are pretty meaty & worth the price -- we've never been disappointed! FYI, if you order after 5 or 5:30 on Friday or weekends, be prepared for a wait.

LOVE this place. The waffle sweet potato fries are perfection and they do not skimp on the sauce for the wings!! The employees are kind and seem to really enjoy their work

At night is when they cook best. Very good and people like it. I ordered 64$ worth one night and it was just great.I ordered during the day time after 1pm and my 40$ was a bust.Hit or miss. Yet, I still order here.Good chicken and taters. Love it.

So good! A favorite for anyone coming to visit Durham! I’m not sure how to say it properly, but this is amazing drunk food that you want to eat when you’re sober, too. That’s how good it is. That’s maybe the best way to describe it.

Best wings I've had in Durham in a long time. Bone-in and boneless options are both great, as well as the sauced and dry-rub options. Don't forget to order a basket of waffle (or sweet potato) fries with a dry-rub seasoning...delicious.

Best wings in Durham. The Peri Peri sauce is my favorite if you like a little spice.Order ahead on the phone, especially during peak times because they get really busy.

This meal was truly a Heavenly experience. As someone that is familiar with the Anchor Bar, the ultimate beginnings of all chicken wings in Buffalo, NY, I must say that these wings have captured the true essence of what Buffalo chicken wings mean to those that desire the best that chicken wings can be!Though I lean toward 'traditional' in all cases, I did taste and experience the non-traditional flavors and they were also great! The waffle fries also...tremendous. I'll be back...again... and again. Thank you Mark! My taste buds have been fulfilled!Steve Kotzin (Orlando, FL)

The wings were good, it wasn't my favorite. I went with the Hot wings, they were definitely hot. Maybe I'll try a different flavor next time with hopes of a taste more to my liking.

These are the best boneless wings I've ever had! The staff was very friendly and my food was made fresh and quick. Absolutely worth every penny and I will be back very soon.

My family and I absolutely love this place! I enjoy the option of being able to break up your wing order in different flavors. Even when they are extremely busy, the wait time is still within reason and quality & accuracy are still on point. I look forward to them expanding to a larger location with more outside seating but still 5 star worthy!

The wings are amazing and I love the service. Overall it's a great place to eat and have a great time. 10/10 recommend Heavenly Buffaloes.

Not really a fan of the wings here except for the hot wings. Other than the hot sauce, they don't seem all that flavorful or juicy. The wait is usually long, but the people here are really friendly and they draw smiley faces on the sauce containers which is cute. One extra star for the service.

Get your fries dry rubbed. I promise you will not be disappointed. Their wings are also pretty good. A little pricey, but definetly worth it for a splurge!

This was a pretty good experience! Wings were good and comes with alot of sauce to cover the wings. The wings are definitely a great size and so are the portions sizes on the fries (my boyfriend and I shared the regular and it was plenty) Would be nice to have a better seating arrangement. Lastly, all the soda options were flat in the drink machine so I had to drink their tea. Overall nice time and would go again!

Gotta Love Heavenly Buffaloes Wings. I lived on Knox Street just a few blocks away for 3 years and ordered here a lot. Became a big fan. I’ve tried mostly all the different flavors and they were all very good. Always friendly staff. Love this setup, very neat place.

Their wings are fantastic, but honestly it's their fries(especially sweet potato!!) that really set them apart from bigger chains like buffalo wild wings. It's a Durham must-have, and I can't wait to go back

Holy cow! Their menus and site say "The wing joint you've been looking for," and that is no lie! We tried five different boneless wings and our two favorites were the heavenly buffalo dry rub and the sweet thai coconut chili. We will definitely be stopping again to try more!

Best wings in the city!!! The sweet Thai chili is the best and they are conscientious of allergy sufferers. Plenty of vegan options too! Call ahead to order during busy night hours to reduce the wait time for pickup (versus just showing up to order; there’s usually a line).

as a vegan foodie, I rarely get food as good as this. this is a casual eatery with only outdoor seating, but lots of shade. I highly recommend the vegan teriyaki wings. my only complaint is there is no restroom and you have to cross the street to get to one. there wasn't even a port a potty. I would rate my experience five stars if it weren't for this.

I’m from out of town and someone recommended this as a good local novelty. It’s a pretty cool setting, just a small walk up counter with limited seating to the side. The menu is clear and offers many options. The guy at the counter was very friendly and helpful (I’m sorry, I’m not sure but I think his name might have been Jason). I ordered a small order of mild wings, a small order of bone out Parmesan garlic, and a half order of jerk waffle fries. Next time I likely wouldn’t order the wings. The mild was very mild, like “why even bother?”. And the wings themselves were pretty thin on meat. Usually I like wings better than boneless, but I’m glad I got the boneless because they were the best thing I got. The meat was juicy and the flavor was very good. The waffle fries were good, but I’d get a different flavor next time.

It's good. I like getting their hottest two flavors. It lets me slow down and enjoy my meal more. Their heat estimations are pretty spot on too.

Fantastic chicken wing place. Probably the best sized wings in Durham and a great selection of sauces and dry rubs. Lemon pepper is a favorite. But you come back for the Parmesan and garlic crusted, sweet potato waffle fries. They just make any day better. Despite up to an hour wait on busy nights this is a go-to when we don't want to cook.

Yo, this was my 1st time here and the customer service is A1. The staff was friendly and helpful. The service was swift and the food, don't get me started on the food. This is easily top 5 restuarants I've been to in my life. They have dry rub waffle fries, yes you read that correctly. In short, you should eat here, the place is great.

Hands down best tasting wings in the Triangle. The only downside is they only have a few picnic benches outdoors. It’s not the best place to sit in the middle of summer. There is limited shade. If you’re only coming to pick up wings, though, totally worth it. Menu is limited but it lets them focus the flavor on the wings!

I broke my tooth eating Heavenly Buffaloes last night, but it was my fault because my teeth are gross. The food was delicious! I have been a Heavenly Buffaloes fan for years now and I have never had a reason not to come back, even after breaking my tooth. There is a wide selection of flavors, and they are vegan inclusive too! I’ve recommended this restaurant to many friends and none of them have been disappointed. The staff is always incredibly friendly as well. I love Heavenly Buffaloes! Please take care of your teeth!

I tried Heavenly Buffaloes for the first time in 2016 and it’s still one of my favorite wing spots. Literally in the top 3! Their wings are always fresh and meaty. No one like a puny wing okay! I like to switch it up and eat their vegan wings too. There is no sacrifice to flavor with them either. I love the variety of sauce options and I’ve always encountered friendly service.

This is THE spot for late food runs. The wings were delicious! They come in both bone-in and boneless. They also come with a bag of veggies with every serving. It's certainly not the only thing to get there, but I can see why the restaurant is named as it is.

Best wings in the triangle, hands down. Great spot to enjoy wings on a nice day (whenever they put benches back after COVID). They also have delicious soy-protein based wings!! So don't let being a vegetarian stop you from going.

So delicious! Best boneless wings we’ve had. We tried the Thai, jerk dry rub, and Carolina bbq. Loved all 3 flavors! The 1/2 pound portions were way bigger than we expected, so we have tons of leftovers! & the waffle fries are incredible. We got the garlic Parmesan dry rub on them, and it was perfect! Highly recommend.

Went for Doordash customers so I really didn't try the food but it looked and smelled delicious. Has to be popular because I had to go there twice in one night. Staff was great and kept me informed of my order's progress. I'll have to try this myself sometime when I'm not working!

The chicken quality is through the roof. Sauces are unmatched. Personally, I’m all about the heavenly Buffalo seasoning on the waffle fries too. And I like their blue cheese dipping sauce quite a lot. Can’t recommend highly enough. If I may, consider the Jerk and the Zesty Garlic as far as sauces go. Great classic buffalos though. You can’t go wrong.

Over-all Decent wings, but I just wanna say beware the, "Burnie Zass-Hoff Spice level 5 sauce wings"... Holy-Sheep! My family regularly eats the Hot Ones XXX (world record hot sauce) but this one lit me and my family up for a good 30 minutes. I personally suspect it's an extract (IE: like, "Da'Bomb") If you're looking to push your limits, then I'm not sure what else is hotter personally.
