Right now, the weather is smokin' hot and so are the wings. Wednesday just happens to be National Chicken Wing Day, so it's the perfect day to grab a pint of your favorite dipping sauce and dig into some dining deals.

While summer is a great time to enjoy barbecued chicken wings, according to the National Chicken Wing Day's official website, over 1.2 billion wings are consumed during the average Super Bowl weekend.

Whether folks finish off every last nibble of meat and cartilage or prefer to savor that first crispy bite the most, here are a handful of restaurant chains that want customers to fill up on wings this Wednesday.

Applebee's

While this quick-service spot serves 25-cent boneless wings on the regular, folks who get wings to-go can score a buy one, get one free order of boneless or regular wings on Wednesday. Just enter the code WINGDAY at checkout when you order online.
