Pro-tip from Fort Thomas Matters on your wing order: order your wings "Cajun Dry Rub" with some of their sauces on the side. Have to go with spicy nutella, if you've never tried that before.
Also, the Fort Thomas Matters burger is the best burger on the menu.

The Best Chicken Wings In Town Are Hiding Just Five Minutes From Downtown Cincinnati At Midway Cafe
Food is something that brings us all together and it is also something that can take you all over the city. Cincinnati has so many outstanding local restaurants, both within the city limits and on the outskirts. Since Northern Kentucky is basically considered a southern suburb of Cincinnati, let’s head across the river to Fort Thomas. This beautiful area offers up some delicious eats and one of them is hiding some of the best wings in Cincinnati. Midway Cafe is a modern restaurant and bar in a historic building and along with its chicken wings, serves up a mouthwatering menu that’s worth a try.
Midway Cafe is a favorite local restaurant in Fort Thomas, just a quick drive over the bridge from downtown Cincinnati.
Those who live in the area have quickly made this a local hangout in the few years it's been open with new owners, and the location itself has long been a favorite. But with a scrumptious menu and cool ambiance, it's a destination restaurant that all Cincinnatians should try.
It's located in the heart of the city, which is filled with charm.
If you've never been to Ft. Thomas, then you should take a drive and check it out. And while you're at it, stop by Midway Cafe for a meal.
Midway Cafe is actually located in a 90-year-old building and you can feel the memories when you walk through the door.
The restaurant wants you to make your own memories when you visit, so it has a laid back atmosphere, friendly service, and a large menu that has so many great choices. The bar area is impressive and there are plenty of tables for small or large groups.
One of the main reasons locals love Midway Cafe is its smoked chicken wings.
These jumbo wings are fresh and never frozen and are flash fried when you order. They have more than a dozen sauces from which to choose, so you can create your ideal meal whether that means mild or extra hot, because they are all bursting with flavor.
The rest of the menu is just as enticing, so if you don't like chicken wings, you should still plan a visit to Midway Cafe.
There is an extensive list of burgers (try the Midway Classic), sandwiches, wraps, salads, and appetizers. When a menu includes something called "Bacon Fried Bacon," you know it's a winner.
Midway Cafe is also known for its extensive bourbon selection, making it one of the best places to sip on this classic Kentucky beverage.
You may need to cross the Ohio River to visit, but for bourbon lovers and those who enjoy some of the best wings in Cincinnati, the trip is definitely worth it.
