Named one of the nation’s Top 10 Wing Restaurants by USA Today in 2012, Plucker’s has established a near cultlike following for its wings and more than 15 signature sauces. But it’s popular for more than just the food. ESPN named it one of the Top 5 Sports Bars in North America that same year, with each location paying homage to the local neighborhood. To keep actively engaged with its audience, Pluckers runs Facebook contests and giveaways regularly.
