It’s National Chicken Wing Day on Sunday, July 29, and for fans of the blessed buffalo-style wing, all deep-fried and slathered in tongue-numbing, vinegar-kissed deep red hot sauces, this is like Christmas in July.
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 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.
