With the big game ahead, we've got wings on the brain. And, we aren't the only ones. According to the National Chicken Council, Americans are expected to consume 1.3 billion chicken wings during this year's Super Bowl. Yes, you read that right. 1.3 billion.

Whether you prefer mild or hot; blue cheese or ranch - you're bound to find something tasty among this list of places to enjoy wings in Lehigh Valley. Be sure to grab some extra napkins!

P.J. Whelihan's (various locations) A big favorite in Lehigh Valley and beyond, these wings don't disappoint. With multiple locations, you can get your fix of their famous wing sauces no matter where you are. Be sure to complement your order with their Famous Fries, featuring Old Bay seasoning and a creamy cheese dip.

Tavern on Liberty (Allentown) Full disclaimer- these are my personal favorite. They're bigger than your average chicken wing, and the sauces are one-of-a-kind. For a twist on the normal hot sauce, try Blue Heat or White Heat where the hot sauce is mixed with blue cheese or ranch, respectively.

Stooges Bar & Grille (Allentown) Sweet heat is the way to go. Whether you prefer traditional wings or boneless, these are sure to hit the spot. And with an 80"+ TV in the dining room, you'll be more than prepared for kickoff.

Keystone Pub (Bethlehem) Ready to brave the heat? Keystone Pub offers a Ghost Sauce that is so spicy, you won't even find it on their regular menu. For the less adventurous, you'll find nine additional sauces to choose from to perfect your order.

Black and Blue (Easton) I had to go with one pick that wasn't at your traditional sports bar / tavern. Black & Blue in Easton is home to some unique cuisine, including their Bat Wings. Choose from two sauces: Chipotle Hot or Sesame Ginger.
