EATS – Buffalo Wild Wings

It’s been a bit since we did a decent food review eh? I guess we can say that a recent trip to the newly opened Buffalo Wild Wings on Ala Moana Boulevard inspired a brutha.

Buffalo Wild Wings first opened in Ohio back in 1982. Well, don’t take my word for it. Here’s the story straight from their menu:

“It started with two guys driven by hunger. The year was 1982. Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowery had recently transplanted to Kent, Ohio from Buffalo, New York. All was fine until one day they started craving wings. Not just any wings, but authentic Buffalo, New York-style Chicken wings. Problem was, there was nowhere to go. Hence the beginning of Buffalo Wild Wings (formerly known as bw-3) – the grill and bar that serves up a healthy dose of fun along with wings spun in signature Buffalo Wild Wing sauces. Over 25 years and millions of wings later, Buffalo Wild Wings Grill and Bar continues to grow.”

My first experience with B Dubbs was on a snowboarding trip to Colorado. My boy Bari swears by them after getting hooked in Pennsylvania. Our first attempt to check out the new one in Hawaii fell short. They weren’t open yet (good job Bari!). This was our second go. Enjoy the pics y’all!

We tried to go early so the wait wouldn’t be too bad, but even in the 4-5PM range, we had to wait a good 25 minutes. Expect to wait a while during these early days.

BWW is also known for their Flatbreads. We got their most popular one: the Buffalo Chicken Flatbread: The taste of Buffalo wings, in for a landing! Crispy flatbread covered with a blend of our signature Spicy Garlic sauce and Bleu cheese dressing, chicken, fresh celery bits and mozzarella cheese.

As with any new opening, they’re still working out the kinks. Our waitress warned us that the order may take an hour due to the kitchen back up, but that’s to be expected and we knew this going in. (Our order arrived in like 10 minutes BTW). If you’re in the mood for something a little different, check it.
