As its name suggests, the family-friendly sports bar takes pride in its jumbo Buffalo wings, available with 18 sauces. Its “Wall of Flame” hot-wings challenge is a signature, recognizing customers who have eaten 16 wings tossed in its spiciest sauce. But it’s not just about the wings. The chain serves up traditional American fare, including ribs, burgers, wraps and fried shrimp. To draw customers in the door, Wings Etc. offers daily food and drink specials, a lunch menu and an interactive video arcade to entertain kids.
