HUNTSVILLE, AL -- Huntsville's chicken wings heavyweights squared-off on Friday in the Alpha Tau Omega's "Battle of the Buffalo."

More than 500 people joined the local fraternity at the University of Alabama in Huntsville to decide which local restaurant offers the best Buffalo wings. The "Battle of the Buffalo" was a fundraiser benefiting the Russell Hill Cancer Foundation.

The all-you-could-eat wing extravaganza pitted places like Hooters, Beauregard's and Domino's against each other in a winner-take-all bout.

Judges, including Maj. Gen. Jim Myles, University of Alabama in Huntsville's President David Williams, Mayor Tommy Battle and Times reporter Jon Busdeker, had the tough job of tasting wings from each restaurant.
