…. And we are starting off 2016 on an energetic, ultra-loud, deep-fried and tangy note with a review on Buffalo Wild Wings, located in Estancia. Buffalo Wild Wings, an American franchise, started out in 1982 thanks to two guys named Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowery, who moved from NYC to Ohio. Since there weren’t any decent chicken wing restaurants in Ohio, these two decided to take matters into their own hands and open up their own chicken wing shop, with its own range of sauces. Thus, Buffalo Wild Wings was born. The one located here in Estancia is the very first Asian franchise of the restaurant.
Interior. It was pretty much the only restaurant open during that time, so naturally, it was packed. It was loud – Very loud, in fact, as one would expect from a joint like this. Not just from the customers/staff, but from the pounding music as well. I’m not the partying type, but I can assume that this is as close as it gets to being inside one of those hip bars/lounges in BGC or Makati.
Menu: Shareables & sides, Thin-crust flatbreads, Savory salads, Beefy burgers & satisfying sandwiches, Kids meals, Wraps & buffalitos, You-deserve-it desserts.
This pretty drink right here is the Cherry Limeade, made with Sprite.
Mozzarella Sticks – Fried cheesy goodness served with marinara sauce. They were served cold so the mozzarella lacked gooeyness. -_-
Italian Pepperoni Flatbread – This is the resto’s version of oven-baked thin-crust flatbread pizza, filled with shreds of cheddar jack cheese, queso cheese, and mozzarella-provolone. Also topped with slices of spicy pepperoni. The crust was nice and chewy and I loved the zing of the pepperoni slices, but we should’ve ordered another flavor instead.
And lastly… Hand-Spun Wings!!! These chicken wings were definitely as fresh as can be. You can choose from Buffalo Wild Wings’ assortment of different homemade sauces and dry seasonings, ranging from Smilin’, to Screamin’. There were so many flavors that I wanted to try, but in the end, I picked their Honey Mustard sauce. The wings come with its own set of carrot sticks, celery stalks, and ranch dressing.
All in all, it was delicious. Unfortunately though, like most other American buffalo wing franchises that I’ve been to, Buffalo Wild Wings’ food is a tad bit overpriced, especially since the servings are small. It’s a shame really, since I do have plans to come back here to try more chicken wing flavors + Their other dishes like their burgers, nachos, and fish tacos.
Food: 4.5/5 (taste), 4/5 (presentation)
