In addition to their assortment of 17 beers on tap and 20 bottled choices, they've got 29 TVs of all shapes and sizes and, lest I forget, a plethora of buffalo wings served in the traditional New York-style with celery and bleu cheese dressing and your choice of 12 different sauces ranging from mild to blazin' (with stops at teriyaki and honey mustard along the way). And what if you don't like bones in your buffalo? Then get it boneless—just as tasty and ten times easier to eat.
Don't let the name fool you—this place has more than just the wings of the buffalo. They've also got the legs and tenders as well, in addition to traditional sandwich fare. Burgers, turkey, chicken and fish sandwiches are all reasonably priced (30 cent wings every Tuesday!).
Buffalo Wild Wings is a chain of sports bar/restaurants that originated in Ohio, but this Chicago location serves as the official home of The Colorado Buffalo (or at least their fans). Of course, with almost 30 TVs in 3 rooms, fans of just about any team can catch a game, especially if one of the local favorites are playing. Every Friday night there's also a stand-up open mic.
