We are usually turned off by the restaurant chains around town, but sometimes it’s hard to resist a 2 pm happy hour with a side of March Madness! Buffalo Wild Wings is more than just a sports hang out, they have some good food and of course buffalo wings.
Atmosphere: This place is large, wide open and chock full of TV’s blaring sports from every angle. Once inside we were staring straight at the bar which occupies the entire west end of the building. There are tables throughout the center of the place and booths lining the south facing wall. There is a large service patio, with seating and fans for warmer months. The walls inside are painted in reds and browns, giving the place a masculine feel and decorated with sports memorabilia – of course. Overall the place is very clean and …. corporate. The crowd was mostly groups watching sports and enjoying happy hour specials. The place was loud due to TV’s playing something different every few feet and because some idiot continuously pumped money into the jukebox, only to have their songs drowned out.
Service: Service was decent and our food came very fast. Service at the bar was quick and friendly.
Drinks: They have a well-stocked bar here, but they could use a few more premium liquor choices. The beer selection is sufficient with a wide range of domestics, (local) micros, and imports. The prices are very reasonable, especially for a large chain and even better during happy hour.
Food: The menu consists of wraps, salads, burgers, ribs and of course wings. They offer 16 different sauces to put on your wings, ranging from the sweet stuff up to a flavor called “blazin”. They also offer a children’s menu and on Monday’s kids eat for $1.99. During our visit we had the juicy steak burger and the chicken buffalito, which were both quite satisfying.
Amenities: Projector TV, HD TV’s, jukebox, touch tunes play ports, claw game, patio, free Wi-Fi, high chairs, take out.
Parking: There is a large parking lot in the shopping center surrounding the place.
The Buzz: Happy-hour Monday – Friday from 2 to 7p.m, Kid’s eat for $1.99 on Monday’s,45 cent wings on Tuesdays, 60 cent boneless wings on Thursdays.
