Tucson has many opinions about the best wings in town.

We have narrowed them down to a 32-eatery field in our inaugural Wing Madness tournament. The contestants include traditional buffalo-style wings, regional heat involving habanero and chipotle, many variations on sweet and hot, BBQ and something called “volcano.”

Find the bracket in Caliente when voting starts next week. Check them all out below.
