Jumbo Buffalo wings are the signature here, but the Etc. part describes baby back ribs, nachos, fried pickle spears, even salads. Wings Etc. bills itself as a family-oriented sports bar and provides a video arcade where the kids can hang out while their parents drink beer and watch a game. The focus on activity continues with a “Wall of Flame” that honors customers who have eaten 16 jumbo wings coated with the chain’s spiciest sauce.
