Buffalo, New York lays claim to the birthplace of the chicken wing and that’s why they are often called Buffalo wings as well. The story goes that Teressa Bellissimo created chicken wings at the Anchor Bar, which she owned with her husband Frank, when her son Dominic and some of his college friends decided they wanted a late night bite to eat. She wanted a fast and easy dish so she deep-fried some chicken wings, which in 1964 were usually reserved for soup stock. She tossed them in butter and hot sauce. Naturally, they were an instant hit. From that point on, other restaurants started offering buffalo chicken wings and now it is an American Restaurant menu staple.

C.R.Wings can’t claim the fame of the Anchor Bar, our wings and sauce are delicious and we are thankful for Teressa and her family for creating the Buffalo Chicken Wing.  When in doubt “Do it Buffalo Style”!!!! at C.R. Wings
