National Wing Day Isn't The Only Day Where Americans Binge On Chicken

6h ago


Happy National Chicken Wing Day! Companies known for their well-sauced fried chicken delicacies have pulled out all the stops this year to drive people into their restaurants on the made up holiday. Buffalo Wild Wings ( ) -- synonymous for its 21 different sauces and rubs -- is offering half-priced wings on Friday. Hooters, home of scantily clad female waitresses and only OK tasting food, has stepped up to the plate with all-you-can-eat traditional wings and boneless wings for $14.99 and $12.99, respectively. At relative newcomer to the space Wingstop ( ), it's giving customers who order wings an extra 5 classic or boneless wings for free between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Pretty meaty wing giveaways indeed. But, make no mistake about it, Americans are poised to scoff down saucey chicken wings way more than on a single day this year. An estimated 28 billion traditional bone-in chicken wings are expected to be eaten in 2016, according to the National Chicken Council. TheStreet visited a Buffalo Wild Wings in New York City to get the lowdown on what makes a great wing. In the case of B-Dubs, as it's known with fans of the chain, its popular wings are made so because they aren't composed from frozen chicken.
