The New York Restaurant That Invented Buffalo Wings Is Opening Up Shop In Anaheim

Looks like you can cancel your flight to Buffalo, New York!

Has the thought of where buffalo wings originated ever came to mind? (No… it’s just us?)

Well – in case you were wondering – the New York-based restaurant who claims to have created the beloved chicken wing combo, called Anchor Bar, is making its way to the West Coast to serve Angelenos with all that OG-finger-licking-goodness. Legend has it that back in 1964, the dive-y local East Coast hang out was the go-to spot in Buffalo and one night, co-owner Teressa Bellissimo whipped up a batch of wings for her son and his friends after they spent the evening drinking. She did her usual thing in the kitchen but on a whim decided to create a new sauce and voilĂ  – the buffalo wing was born!

Though they’re amazing, don’t limit yourself to just trying their Buffalo Wings — choose from a variety of just as delicious sauces and flavors such as sweet and sour, honey garlic, spicy garlic parmesan, spicy bbq as well as different levels of buffalo sauce heat including mild, medium, hot, and suicidal (if you’re brave enough…) The menu also includes a number of bar foods like hamburgers, fish fries, and pizzas!

There isn’t an exact date scheduled for the opening of the restaurant’s Anaheim location, but wing lovers can expect something in the upcoming months.
