A good lunch makes for a good afternoon. So, on a cold and rainy afternoon my husband, daughter and I went on a search for a good meal.
We decided to try out Buffalo Wild Wings on Merle Hay Road. As we stepped into the large, warm restaurant full of flat screen televisions, I had a feeling we had made a good choice.
As our waitress seated us, she informed us that it was “traditional Tuesday.” She explained this means bone-in wings are on special for only 50 cents per wing. My husband jumped right on this and ordered several of the traditional wings with the hot barbecue sauce. With 16 different sauce choices, there is quite a lot of variety. A slave to the originals, he decided to go with a safe, yet spicy choice.
I, however, decided I would try something just a little bit different. The menu has much more than just wings. There is a variety of appetizers, salads, sandwiches and even wraps. I decided on the chicken wrap. Boring, you say? Not so. This wrap is loaded with lettuce, crispy or grilled chicken, tomatoes and yummy shredded cheese. On top of that, I was able to choose which sauce I wanted to top my wrap. I chose the sweet barbecue sauce and made it my own by opting out on the tomatoes.
We sat, chatted and kept our little girl occupied as we waited for our meals. There were lots of other full tables of happy diners. The whole place smelled delicious, and I couldn’t wait for my food.
As if on command, the waitress arrived with our choices. She sat down my wrap, nestled in a basket with salty tortilla chips and a cup of chunky salsa. My first bite was full of juicy, crispy chicken smothered in sweet sauce. The flour wrap was soft, yet thick and hearty.
My husband dunked his wings in zesty ranch sauce and was given a few extra baskets to easily get rid of the bones. By the end of the meal, he was messy, full and happy.
Buffalo Wild Wings in Urbandale is a great place to take family, friends or even a date for great, filling food and a laid-back atmosphere.Buffalo Wild Wings
