Default Went to a buffalo wild wings today...

I decided after their homebrew joke I'd give one a try. I was impressed with their beer selection for a chain restaurant. I was UNIMPRESSED by the obvious pushing of miller lite by the waitress, but whatevs. I even got carded! it made me feel young again (am 35 sigh)

I ordered a Rogue Dead Guy Ale on draft. Not half bad, i didnt hate it, i wasnt really in the mood for it though so i didnt finish it.. $6.50 for a draft. REALLY?! REALLY?!

No wonder I don't order beer when out to dinner.

It's a fun atmosphere at least where I live to watch a sporting event with some friends. The beer selection is admirable for a chain restaurant, but their food flat out sucks.

Meh yah that's what you get with a chain type establishment that relies on their marketing prowess to attract customers. Some people seem to love them, many seem to hate them, like other chain restaurants.

Yes. And this year the ones in Michigan were huge supporters of Michigan Craft Beer Month, even selling a really nice commemorative glass with part of the money going to the Michigan Brewer's Guild.



My co-minister, and our key volunteers who are football fans are going to one straight after church on Sundays to watch the Lion's together. The waiter at the one we go to was pushing the Michigan Craft Beers over BMCs when I last went for opening day.

And their wings rule.

I buy their sauce and make my own wings. I like their buffalo chicken sandwich with wedges and ranch though. The food really isn't anything spectacular.

Love their wings but can't afford their beer prices. I'd rather buy the sauce, make em' at home & drink what's in my fridge.

Love their wings, especially the hot sauces - they burn going down and burn like hell coming out, but damn, are they ever good
