July 26, 2018 // ABC 15 // Josh Frigerio


PHOENIX – Native Grill and Wings is throwing it back to 1979 with 10-cent wings for National Wing Day.

On Sunday, July 29, the Chandler-based restaurant chain will have 10-cent wings — reminiscent of a special during its early “Native New Yorker” days — at all of its restaurants.

The company shortened its name and updated its logo in 2014.

There is a limit of 10 traditional wings per person at the discounted price and one sauce or dry rub per order, said Adriana Espinosa, public relations and marketing manager at Native. Boneless wings are not included.

Native has more than 20 sauces and dry rubs including honey barbecue, lemon pepper, chicken and waffles (all dry rubs) and honey chipotle, jalapeno, and Habanero mango (all sauces).

There are 28 locations in Arizona, most in the Phoenix metro and Tucson. Other restaurants can be found in South Dakota, Texas and Illinois. Find one, here.

Roll back the clock: Native offers 10-cent wings for National Chicken Wing Day

July 29, 2018 // Arizona Daily Star // Cathalena E. Burch

And Native Grill & Wings is Santa Claus.

On Sunday, Native is giving us up to 10 wings per person for 10 cents apiece, for eat-in only.


Any excuse to get a 10-cent authentic Buffalo-style chicken wing — we’re talking the kind you get at Buffalo’s Anchor Bar or Duff’s in the Queen City — works for us.

Native Grill & Wings has 10-cent wings to celebrate National Chicken Wing Day.

Native Grill & Wings knows a thing about the way Buffalo — the city and birthplace of the famed buffalo wings — does wings. The Phoenix-based sports bar and restaurant was started by ex-Buffalo residents who are well-practiced in the art of making wings.

So why 10 cents?

That’s the price you paid way back in 1979 when Native was launched with a single restaurant in Phoenix. It now has locations throughout the
state — including four in the Tucson area — and in Texas, South Dakota and Illinois.


Tucson area locations include 11107 N. Oracle Road in Oro Valley and Tucson Spectrum mall at 5421 S. Calle Santa Cruz.

These National Chicken Wing Day Deals are Spicy AF

I hate to sound totally cliché, but college was — hands down— the best four years of my life so far on this planet. You were constantly surrounded by all of your best friends 24/7, there was almost always something fun to do around every corner, and, most importantly, you could usually find a relatively steady supply of free and discounted food, whether it was on campus, or in your college town. Needless to say, college (and the food sitch) was my idea of a fairytale, and if you feel me, these National Chicken Wing Day deals are guaranteed to add a nice little kick to your week on Sunday, July 29. You can thank me later.

Aside from Thanksgiving, my birthday, or maybe New Year’s Eve, National Chicken Wing Day has to be the greatest food holiday of them all. Between boneless wings, bone-in wings, grilled, fried, spicy, BBQ, sweet-chili, and teriyaki wings, there are so many different ways to customize your order… and the best part is that they’re being offered for free or at a discounted price. Just thinking about it gets my heart racing, and I never thought I’d say this, but Sunday, July 29 seriously could not come any sooner. Get your stomach and your wallets ready, y’all — this is going to be a weekend to remember.


Arizona-based chicken wing chain Native Grill and Wings is celebrating National Wing Day on Sunday, July 29, by offering 10 cent wings, with a maximum of 10 wings per person, according to a press release. Customers can choose from over 20 sauces and dry rubs at any Native location nationwide, according to a press release, so get ’em while they’re hot.

It looks like Sunday is definitely the day to eat yourself into a food coma, so if you were planning on doing something productive, maybe push it off until Monday. National Chicken Wings Day only comes once a year, and celebrating is absolutely mandatory.

CHANDLER, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) – An Arizona-based restaurant chain is offering quite the deal for National Chicken Wing Day.

“National Chicken Wing Day is not just any holiday – it’s our holiday that allows us (to) showcase Native’s roots and why we began in the first place,” Dan Chaon, CEO of Native Grill & Wings, said in a statement.

What started in Chandler almost 40-years ago, Native now has more than 30 restaurants in Arizona, Texas, Illinois and South Dakota. The restaurant’s claim to fame is for introducing chicken wings to the Valley of the Sun.

National Chicken Wing day started in 1977 with a proclamation from Buffalo Mayor Stan Makowski, according to the holiday’s website.

People reportedly ate around 1.3 billion chicken wings just during the Super Bowl and an estimated 28 billion traditional bone-in chicken wings were eaten in 2016, according to the National Chicken Council.

Native Grill & Wings, an award-winning Arizona-based restaurant chain known for introducing chicken wings to the Valley of the Sun is celebrating National Chicken Wing Day on Sunday, July 29.

Customers can indulge on wings with their choice of over 20 sauces and dry rubs at any of the Native Grill & Wings nationwide. The celebration will give guests, both old and new, the chance to enjoy their favorite wing flavor or try a new one during the one-day limited-time offer.

Chicken wings can be seen as the crown jewel in the restaurant industry. They can be dressed in sauces or dry rubs that are spicy, sweet, savory or left plane Jane style and accompanied with dipping sauces galore.

Nearly 40 years later, Native is a staple in Arizona with customers always coming back for more. Our 10 cent wing deal on July 29 is also a way for us to celebrate our customer’s never-ending support.”

Mexico fans watch in Laveen, as team falls to Brazil

July 3, 2018 // FOX 10 News // Steve Kraft

 – On Monday, Brazil brought an end to Mexico’s run in the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but before that, fans of Team Mexico were out in force in Laveen to watch the games.

7:00 a.m., and hundreds of fans have already packed Native Grill and Wings, after Mexico slid into the round of 16. At the start of the game, fans wonder if their team would break through to the quarterfinals after repeated failures in past World Cups. After half a game, they held mighty Brazil to a scoreless draw, and fans were feeling good.

“They are playing great defense, small mistakes now and then, but we have had our attacks too,” said Oscar Rodriguez. “I predict Mexico will win 1-0.”

“Brazil is attacking, but Mexico second half, we will score a goal. 1-0 that is all we need. We are going to advance to the quarterfinals,” said Alex Perea.

Here and there in the pro-Mexico crowd, we saw a yellow Brazil jersey.

“It is definitely intimidating with all these green jerseys,” said Mari Huerta. “There are so many Mexico fans around it is scary. May the best team win. They are both trying their hardest.”

In the end, Mexico’s trying its hardest just wasn’t quite good enough, as Brazil shut Mexico down in the second half for a 2-0 win. Sweet for brazil fans, but more heartbreak for Mexico. It was not quite the result by any stretch that Mexico fans wanted, but it did not, in any way, dim the spirits of these fans, as they sang and cheered long after the final whistle.
