Triple Play Sampler at (716)

The classic chicken wing has been in our lives since its creation just over 50 years ago and it’s popularity has continued to grow every year since. Unfortunately for us original wing-lovers, so has the cost of the deep fried, hot sauced, blue cheese slathered snack.

Remember when thirty cent wings was the norm? So do we. Thankfully, some local dive bars and sports bars are keeping it real with weekly wing deals.  Here’s a lineup of the best places to get the Buffalo born classic on a budget. #wingnight
