Buffalo Wild Wings was founded in 1982 after James Disbrow and Scott Lowery moved from Buffalo, New York, to Kent, Ohio. Unable to find authentic Buffalo-style chicken wings in their new town, they decided to open up their own restaurant first, in Columbus, Ohio, and then one in Westerville, Ohio one year later.[1] Originally called Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck, from which the abbreviation BW3 was created, the restaurant became a franchise with more than 430 locations across 37 U.S. states. The company later changed its name to Buffalo Wild Wings but still uses the short name BW3 on occasion due to the common usage by patrons. Image File history File links CBW3logoedit. ...

Buffalo Wild Wings is best-known for its buffalo wings and its 14 signature sauces. In late February 2006 they eliminated two sauces, Smokey Southwestern and Thai, and added Honey BBQ, Parmesan Garlic, Asian Zing and Mango Habanero. The restaurants also feature a full menu of salads, appetizers, burgers, and specialty drinks.

The "Blazin' Challenge" is offered at some locations to patrons who can finish 12 of the hottest wings offered (wings with Blazin' sauce) in less than 6 minutes. The rules are no drinking water or touching the face. Customers who complete the challenge receive a t-shirt.

In early 2007 Buffalo Wild Wings changed some menu items. An "Appetizer Sampler" platter that features mozzarella sticks, onion rings, ultimate nachos, and boneless wings was added, as were roasted mushrooms and blackened chicken salads, among others. The burgers went from 1/3-pound to a half-pound, and a complimentary order of ranch, blue cheese, southwest ranch or celery is included with an order of wings. In July 2007 Buffalo Wild Wings introduced 3 new menu items Cheeseburger Dippers, Pulled Pork Sandwich (This sandwich used to be on the menu and was pulled. It is a returnee without the weck bun), and Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. Additionally, Buffalo Wild Wings has wireless internet in majority of its locations.

Notes and references

  1. ^ The original location itself closed on November 19, 2006. In late June 2007 the new Buffalo Wild Wings opened at Ohio State University in Columbus. This location would be the return to the original location which would become the company's flagship location. This massive store has over 75 televisions and spans over 8,000 square feet. The location is just two blocks north of the original. It would have been opened when the old one closed but construction ran longer than expected delaying the re-opening.
