Buffalo Wild Wings

I see that a new location is about to open on Dundas near Winston Churchill. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? The only other wing chain that I have tried is Wild WIng which did not impress.

  1. I think this is the chain that "Wild Wings" was trying to impersonate up here. I have never been to one before but curious to hear how it is. You could probably get a sense for it by seeing if there is any discussion about it in the "chains" section here.

      I agree with your comment that Wild Wings was a not so good knock off of Buffalo Wild Wings. I've been to several locations... Tucson, Buffalo and Hamilton. As described by others, the restaurant is a great sports bar with multiple screens showing several different games. They have a great wing menu with both sauces and rubs indicated, including relative "heat". I think it will be a good addition to the Meadowvale area. Might even give it a go tomorrow before seeing my fried star in Young Frankenstein at the Meadowvale Theatre.

    2. It's a good thing! I love their restaurant at Winston Churchill and Argentia. The sports bar half of the joint is great for watching the game and the wings are excellent. .65 wing specials two nights of the week. Order any size in any denomination you like and you get to bring the leftovers home (a lot of places don't let you do that on wing special nights). The boneless wings are great too. A lot of interesting sauces too; a lot choices but nothing silly. Easily the best spot for wings in Mississauga, IMHO. It blows away Wild Wing --- not even close!

      1. DH and I ended up here a in September and have been back twice since then. The wings, we were told, are fresh, never frozen. IIRC, they also advised us that the chickens were grain fed.

        They are a bit bigger than fryer wings but smaller than buffalo wings. Or maybe the are proper sized buffalo wings without the steriods.

        We loved the wings. It reignited my wing addiction that I had successfully kicked in the past. They are cooked perfectly crisp. You can taste that they are not frozen. We enjoy them so much that we both get only salt and pepper on the wings with sauce on the side. They don't even need sauce they are so good.

        Also, service has been great each time. Staff are friendly and attentive. They also offer games (like trivia) to play at your table on a console type thing. They have many TV's in the bar area so great place to watch sports.

        The location we have been to all three times, is the Dundas/Winston Churchill one.

        For reference, I did not at all like the Wild Wings chain but this chain is doin it right! It sucks they beat out a Canadian Chain but I can clearly see why.

          Update on my Buffalo Wild Wings (Dundas/Winston Churchill) opinion. I've been here about 5 times since my last review as they have a lot of TV's for sports. I ended up here with my girlfriend Thursday evening and my husband this afternoon for Jays/Raptors games and after trying a few different appetizers that were tasty if you like salty pre-frozen food, I've determined that the only fresh and tasty food here are the wings and beer. Today on the menu it stated "fresh beer battered onion rings". We ask and no, they are not prepared fresh and the only real fresh item are the chicken wings.
          Try this place only for the wings, beer and sports!
