(also known as B-Dubs) is a national chain restaurant, with the main attraction being its namesake — wings.
It is a family friendly sports bar, with a full menu including wings, salads and wraps, sandwiches, burgers and desserts. A kids menu is also available. Multiple big screen televisions and all the game day favorites, including beer and a large variety of wings, make the grill and bar a popular destination for sports lovers. The Fenton location is at 3190 West Silver Lake Road.
Entrees: The wings are easily customizable with the choice of portion size, traditional or boneless wings and 14 signature sauces. Accessorize your wings with sauces ranging from the most mild to the hottest of the sauces – Blazin'. The sauce lineup is rounded off with a variation of flavors like Teriyaki, Parmesan Garlic, Asian Zing, and Mango Habanero.
My dining experiences at Buffalo Wild Wings has been limited and I decided to go for the famed wings. I choose the boneless honey bbq wings, served with a side of ranch. The hype of the wings lived up to my expectations and I was very happy with my choice. The honey bbq sauce was sweet and slightly spicy, not too intense for these wussy taste buds, which will not be going near the Blazin' sauce.
The Buffalo Ranch Chicken Wrap, which looked delicious, is a favorite of my dining buddy and will be the next menu item I order. The wrap is Chicken Buffalo Tenders topped with lettuce, tomato, ranch dressing and several cheeses. All wraps are served with a side of tortilla chips and salsa.
Most of the menu items are what you would expect to see at a chain restaurant such as this, which is not a bad thing, especially since it is an establishment focusing on serving wings.
Atmosphere: The service was friendly and the food arrived quickly. The booths offer a more secluded dining experience than the open bar area. The Fenton location offers free WiFi, for nerds like me, who take their laptops to bars (I'm not kidding, I do!)
Other options: Unique items on the menu are fried pickles, crispy Southwest dippers, several blends of lemonade, and the Honey BBQ Bacon Burger. BOCA Burgers offer a meat-free burger option. Dinner selections for the kids12 and under include a bite-sized burger called the Cheeseburger Slammer, a boneless wings kids meal, chicken tenders, and macaroni and cheese. The adult beverage menu features a full bar with draft and bottled beers, wine, and specialty cocktails.
A sports bar is not normally my atmosphere of choice, but this one with its family friendly environment, makes the experience much more enjoyable. Buffalo Wild Wings suites a variety of dining experiences from a family dinner to a spot to watch the game, or just popping in for an after work drink. Food is available for takeout, which you can call in at (810) 629-0099 or order there.
