Native Grill & Wings, an award-winning Arizona-based restaurant chain known for its wing flavors that guests can order by the individual wing, has recently debuted a new lunch menu filled with lunchtime promotions to provide customers with value driven meal options.
Native’s lunch menu features the Big Ol’ Slice lunch special, a deal that lets customers can order a larger than normal slice of pizza and choice of soda or tea for only $5.00 at participating locations. In addition to their Big Ol’ Slice special, Native introduces the mix & match lunch option allowing customers to choose an entrée and add as many sides of their favorite appetizers to pair.
“We are thrilled to debut our revamped lunch menu as it is customizable to every individual guest,” says CEO Dan Chaon. “We want them to be able to enjoy a filling, delicious lunchtime meal at a value-driven price point. At Native we’re always trying to find new ways to say “thank you” to our customers for all of the success we’ve garnered over the years. Creating menus and promos that give them the best bang for their buck is part of that.”
The lunch menu also highlights the return of Native fan favorites – jalapeño puffs and curly fries. After being featured on Native’s Throwback menu this past March, the one-of-a-kind customer favorites will now become permanent menu items.
These new additions come on the heels of Native Buffalo Fries as they continue to be a successful menu item after their launch in March. Native Buffalo Fries offer a unique take on Native’s signature seasoned fries and chicken strippers – an item that is the first of its kind to casual dining restaurants in the chicken wing sector of Arizona.
“Our Throwback Menu received such enthusiasm from Native guests – old and new, that it was a no-brainer to include these Native legacy items on our new menu,” Chaon says. “We want our food to speak for the thoughtfulness that Native puts into creating a menu that best serves our guests.”
Native Grill & Wings (or, “Native,” as the regulars called it) focuses on food and being family-friendly unlike competitors such as Hooters, Twin Peaks and Buffalo Wild Wings. The polished sports grill proudly offers 20 wing flavors – from Strawberry Hot to Ancho Chile Lime, Asian Garlic to Honey Chipotle – that guests can order by the individual wing, as well as an extensive menu of burgers, sandwiches, salads and more. Most of the sauces and rubs can be used to customize other menu items.
The restaurants are divided into a bar and restaurant, with approximately 30-40 flat screen TVs throughout, offering sports coverage for families and serious fans, and a customer base spanning all generations – baby boomers, Generation Xers and Millennials.
