There's already a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant and bar in Brooklyn, and now the chain restaurant (based in Minneapolis) is taking over an entire building in Times Square to build a 15,000 square foot temple to wings—and TVs for sports fans to watch games. There will be stadium seating.
Buffalo Wild Wings will take over 253 West 47th Street. According to a press release from Winick Realty Group, there will be "15,000 square feet of dining and entertainment, including a 5,000-square-foot ground floor with soaring 22-foot ceilings" for its multimedia entertainment systems. And there will be a 2,000 square foot roof deck.
The chain boasts about its 16 sauces and 5 seasonings for wings (Jamming Jalapeno!, Thai Curry) and an array of domestic, imported and craft beers. However, reviewers on Yelp have wildly differing opinions of the popular Brooklyn location, especially on Tuesdays when there's special pricing on wings: "Groups of people lined up in front of this place like a Black Friday sale and fight for seating. That's how rough it is. Fortunately, it's in the mall and you can kill time by shopping. I came here last summer with my coworkers and the 12 of us were seated within almost 2 hours, more or less."
