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 voilà – the buffalo wing was born!
There isn’t an exact date scheduled for the opening of the restaurant’s Anaheim location, but wing lovers can expect something in late 2019/early 2020! In the meantime, you can catch Anchor Bar serving up buffalo wings galore at the first-ever wing festival to be hosted in L.A. later this month! The Chicken Wing Festival is set to take place on July 29 from 6:30p to 10:30p and will take over the parking lot of Mel’s Drive-In on Sunset Boulevard.
Location: 1547 W Katella Ave, Orange, CA 92867. See it on Google maps.
