The Intriguing History of the #WickedGood Wing

A menu must-have for any good sports bar & grill is the ever-popular appetizer - the chicken wing. The best sports bar & grill at the Lake of the Ozarks not only has a #WickedGood selection of tasty wings on our menu, but we're willing to bet they're the best you've ever tasted! We know how the fantastic wings at Wicked Willie's Sports Grill are created, but today's blog gives you a look at how the first wings ever served came to be.

The hot wing histories below do all agree that this delicious appetizer was first introduced in Buffalo, New York (which is where the name "Buffalo Wings" comes from,) but from there the tales vary.
