Buffalo wings, those delicious, spicy meaty chicken wings that can come with all different sauces with the option of being fried or baked are one of America’s favorite snack foods.  A good bar & food establishment isn’t complete without a menu that offers Buffalo Wings with or without all different sauces.

Where did the name Buffalo Wings come from?  Well it is believed that the first plate of wings was served in Buffalo, NY at a place called the Anchor Bar.  It has been told that a woman named Teressa Bellissimo served the wings with her own special sauce, blue cheese and celery because that’s all she had available.  Buffalo now celebrates Chicken Wing Day on July 29th every year!  Pretty cool if you’re a buffalo wing fan as you don’t want to miss it!

For many years, wings were only served in New York. By the mid-1980’s Buffalo wings had spread across the country.  There’s even a Wing Bowl in Philadelphia that draws crowds of over 20,000!

This festival is great fun and in just two days of the festival, it’s estimated that the attendees eat over 27 tons of Buffalo Wings!  Now that’s a lot of wings!

The first winner of the Wing Bowl at an amazing 444 wings in 26 minutes! Now that’s Buffalo Wing eating to the max!
