7 Buffalo Sauce Alternatives for Awesome Chicken Wings


Hey wing lovers! We all know Buffalo sauce is basically the MVP when it comes to any chicken wings menu. It’s spicy, it’s tangy, and it’s the classic game-day snack. But sometimes you’ve got to shake things up. While Buffalo sauce packs a delicious punch, there’s a whole world of other incredible sauces just waiting to be drizzled (or dunked or rubbed) on your next batch of chicken wings. We’ll walk you through the best chicken wing sauces and dry rubs on our menu so that you can treat your tastebuds next time you’re looking to spice things up. 


Switch It Up with these Wing Sauces and Dry Rubs

Sweet, savory, mild, spicy, and seriously hot. These wing sauces and dry rubs have it all. Explore our top flavors to discover your new favorite.

Sweet: Sweet BBQ Wing Sauce

First up, let’s talk Sweet BBQ. This wing sauce is sweet, smoky, and oh-so-good. With hints of tomato, brown sugar, and flavorful spices it’s a slice of BBQ heaven on your chicken wings. If you’re looking for sauce worth slathering on, BBQ is always a good way to go.

Savory: Teriyaki Wing Sauce

Now, if you’re craving something a bit more on the savory side, try our salty and tangy Teriyaki wing sauce. This sauce features a soy base that gets balanced-out perfectly with a sweet hint of pineapple juice. It’s like the flavors of your favorite hibachi grill restaurant, but on chicken wings.

Mild: Lemon Pepper Wing Sauce

The right simple flavors can make a big impact. If you like to keep things on the lighter side, may we suggest our absolutely delicious lemon pepper wing sauce. Combining zesty lemon and a bit of spice from fresh cracked black pepper—it’s the best of both worlds. It’s not too hot, but it’s packed with flavor.

Southern-Inspired: Cajun Dry Rub

Take yourself on a flavor vacation with this dry rub inspired by iconic Louisiana cuisine. Our Cajun dry rub brings bold personality with a blend of savory seasonings, smoky paprika, and red pepper flakes for a spicy kick. When you want an alternative from the classics, go Cajun-style for a depth of spices and finger-licking delicious taste you’ll keep coming back for.

Cheesy: Garlic Parmesan Wing Sauce

If your favorite thing about buffalo chicken wings is the bleu cheese dip, why not just double down on the cheese factor? After all, you can never go wrong with cheese in our minds. Treat yourself to our garlic parmesan wing sauce, that’s the perfect pair of savory garlic flavor with plenty of sharp parmesan cheese. Garlic and cheese—that’s always a win, especially on chicken wings.

Spicy: Nashville Hot Dry Rub

Feeling brave? Take your tastebuds on a ride with our Nashville hot dry rub that brings the heat. This chicken wing dry rub one is inspired by the ever-so popular hot chicken from Music City, so you know it’s going to be good. If you’re looking for a new heat experience rather than classic Buffalo, this is the way to go.

Atomic Hot: Ghost Pepper Ranch Wing Sauce

This one is for the ultimate heat seekers. Our ghost pepper ranch wing sauce is for folks who aren’t afraid of serious spice. This chicken wing sauce has searing heat from the ghost peppers themselves, paired with ranch to cool it down just enough to keep you coming back for more.
