Our Story

Four decades of

food & fun

Native Grill & Wings has matured over 40 years of uncompromising flavor, food and fun. The brand started out as Native New Yorker Restaurant, named after a goofy little disco song that the founding family members listened to as they made their way from Buffalo, New York in 1978. After introducing Buffalo’s famous chicken wings to the Southwest, the restaurant developed a cult following with their wings. Native, as the legion of fans call it, rebranded in 2014 to Native Grill & Wings, which represents the loyal following of our guests. 


An ever-growing Franchise

With 20 restaurants and growing, Native Grill & Wings is looking to break into emerging markets with strong, like-minded Franchise entrepreneurs who are passionate about keeping the legacy of the Anderson family dream alive and well. The 20 plus time winner of “Best Wings” awards is expanding to a location near you. We are currently in Arizona and Texas.

Native Grill & Wings continues to serve chicken wings, along with sandwiches, burgers, salads, and much more; its choices are sure to leave your mouth watering and your lips smiling. Today, with chicken wings becoming more and more popular, Native Grill & Wings is still winning awards for its wings, sauces, menu and for being the only unique concept where guests can order all 20 flavors by the individual wing. Native Grill & Wings is the market leader with this unique niche.
