Buffalo Wild Wings

Buffalo Wild Wings
Average: 4 (1 vote)

After moving from Buffalo, New York, to Kent, Ohio, friends James Disbrow and Scott Lowery couldn't find a restaurant that served the Buffalo-style chicken wings they still craved, so they decided to open their own. Their first sports bar, originally named Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck (or BW-3), opened in Columbus, Ohio, in 1982. The company began franchising in 1991. In addition to wings and 14 signature sauces, Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants offer a full menu including salads, sandwiches, burgers and ribs.
