Our Story

Welcome to the sports restaurant experience that goes way beyond just buffalo wings.

We're a club-level sports restaurant, worthy of the ultimate sports dining experience. With bright, inviting dining rooms, 50+ TVs, elevated fan experiences, chef-inspired recipes and of course our signature wings, Buffalo Wings & Rings is the ideal experience for socializing with friends & family over sports.

This didn't happen overnight. For over three decades we've been perfecting the art of great food and great service. See how we've grown and changed.
