NoVA Wars: King of the Wings 2012

King of the Wings

 

And we have our winner! Returning champ Jimmy’s Old Town Tavern in Herndon took the crown in the King of the Wings 2012.¬†

 

How the competition works:

1) Northern Virginia Magazine will host three first-round events. Fans can taste test wings from three of the restaurant contestants, score each of them on their judging sheets, and then come to this webpage to vote for their favorite. (Voting is open from 9 a.m. the day before the event until 9 p.m. on the day after the event. One vote per IP address per 24 hours.)

2) Then, the three restaurants who have moved on to the final round and one wild card contestant will compete again at a fourth event, and fans will vote to decide who will become the next King of the Wings. The winner gets a plaque to hang in their restaurant/s and bragging rights as the next King of the Wings!
