3 New Menu Items Buffalo Wild Wings Is Launching This Spring
Buffalo Wild Wings is yet again expanding its menu. In the past two weeks, the popular casual dining and sports bar chain launched three new items, including a burger, a sauce, and a tater-tot dish.
These are only the most recent additions in what is shaping up to be an impressive menu expansion campaign. Jamie Carawan, Buffalo Wild Wings' VP of brand menu and culinary, recently told Restaurant Business the chain has as many as fifty new wing flavors in the works.
Early releases included citrus-infused sauces, as well as one that tastes like pizza. Not to mention, the wing spot debuted a limited-release sauce in February to celebrate the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Super Bowl victory—"Champa Sauce"—which was available exclusively at Tampa Bay locations. And with dozens of new flavors and dishes still in the hatch, Buffalo Wild Wings is beginning to look very much like the restaurant chain to beat.
Read on for a closer look at its most recent menu additions.
Smashed Hatch Burger
Although Buffalo Wild Wings is best known first for its wings, it also has an impressive roster of burgers and sandwiches. Fresh out of the chain's R&D lab comes the Bacon Smashed Hatch Chile Burger. Stacked with a brace of patties, cheese, and bacon, the sandwich is also loaded with heat in the form of hatch chili peppers (a kind of New Mexican pepper) and Fresno peppers. And all that heat for the cool price of $13.99.
The concept behind this condiment is simple: as a BWW representative described it, Truffalo Sauce is a "delicacy [for] the masses." The groundbreaking condiment is a daring fusion of white truffle oil and traditional BWW buffalo sauce—a humble take on a refined high-end ingredient. The sauce was announced last week on the chain's Instagram page.
Buffalo Chicken Tots
This hefty dish seems to have started with the premise that a tater tot can easily work as a tortilla chip. The tot base is loaded with shredded chicken, blue cheese, and a medley of green onions and Fresno chili peppers. The whole thing is then drizzled with ranch and buffalo sauce. At $12.49 a pop, these may be the most reasonably priced 2110 calories you've ever tasted—or, as we recommend, shared.
