There’s no area more serious about hot wings than Buffalo, the first city ever to fry ’em up, coat ’em with fiery sauce, dunk ’em in bleu cheese and ask for seconds…
Let’s take a moment to pause here. Did I say bleu cheese? Yep. Not ranch dressing or some other creamy white stuff. Bleu cheese. Everyone listening here? Nothing adds to the delight of enjoying a Buffalo Wing like bleu cheese. To all you people who thought the white dressing was ranch, I’m telling you now; it’s bleu cheese. Seriously – ranch couldn’t touch the stuff as a chicken wing dipper. Please, please stop serving ranch with your Buffalo-style chicken wings…. please.
Ok, now that I’ve got that out of the way (did I mention we dip them in bleu cheese?) Buffalo, as most of you know, is the home of the hot wing. The first batch was whipped up years ago at Anchor Bar on Main Street as a quick, random snack and they’ve become legendary since. Many other cities around the country try to duplicate the Buffalo Wing but if you’re coating them in straight butter or some other slathering agent, instead of using a mixture of hot sauce and the like, they’re not Buffalo Wings. They may be tasty to you, and they may be fried chicken wings, but Buffalo Wings they are not. Just setting the record straight.
If you would like to enjoy the deliciousness of Buffalo Wings at home or in your restaurant, no matter where you live, we’ve got everything you need to make it happen (barring the actual chicken – BAGGOCK!).
From chicken wing sauce made by Anchor Bar, the originators themselves, to wing tossing bowls, bleu cheese dipping bowls, tongs, wing bone bowls, super spicy hot sauces and more, we’ve got all you need to enjoy real Buffalo Hot Wings, whenever the fancy strikes.
P.S….. if ever you come to Buffalo to visit, and decide you’d like to enjoy Buffalo Wings where they originated, they’re simply called “Wings” here. The “Buffalo” is silent. 🙂
