In 2014, Native New Yorker officially changed its name to Native Grill & Wings to reinforce the chain’s signature: its 19 flavors of chicken wings. However, the sports grill offers more than wings; flatbreads, sandwiches, salads and fish platters also are available on the extensive menu. The chain recently has expanded from its Arizona roots to Colorado and Texas and has launched a special-events food truck.
