We rounded up some national chains that deliver hot wings and looked into what you get with your order. You know, just to make decision time a little easier for you.

Domino's: Chicken wings come in packs of 8 for $5.99, 14 for $9.99, and 40 for $27.* You have your choice of 5 sauces: Fire, Hot, Mild, Sweet Mango Habañero, BBQ. And a serving of 4 pieces has 190-200 calories, depending on which kind you get.

Papa John's: These wings are baked and come in packs of 10 for $6.99, 20 for $13.98, 30 for $20.49, 40 for $27.96, and 50 for $32.99. There are 4 varieties: Spicy Buffalo Wings, BBQ Wings, Honey Chipotle Wings, and Unsauced Wings. Dipping sauce options (you get 2 for free) include BBQ, Honey Mustard, Buffalo Sauce, Ranch Sauce, and Blue Cheese. A 2-wing serving contains 170-190 calories, depending on which variety you get.

Wing Zone: Lucky people with one of these restaurants in your city can order a package of 5 for $4.49, 7 for $5.99, 10 for $7.49, 20 for $13.99, 25 for $17.00, 30 for $21.99, or 50 for $34.99. You can add a basket of fries or celery sticks for extra. Wing Zone's wings come in 15 different "award-winning" flavors with crazy names like Clark Kent, Hot and Happy, and Buffalo Blue. Oh, too bad -- calorie information is not available online.

Now, I'm just going to put this out there -- Esquire did a survey of the "Best Buffalo Hot Wings In America." It's a pity Bon Chon Chicken and Buffalo Wild Wings don't deliver. However, some cities have delivery services like GrubHub that will deliver for these restaurants. Just an idea ...

*All prices may vary by region.

Chicken wing fans, who makes your favorite? Will you be noshing on wings during the game?
