Buffalo Wild Wings, 10056 Two Notch Road: 12 May 2023   8 comments

Posted at 11:12 pm in closing
























I admit to being a bit disenchanted with Buffalo Wild Wings. I never went to this location, but I used to go the the Devine Street store some because it was open late nights. I had one ongoing issue in that they would frequently be out of unsweet ice-tea. I know it's mainly a beer place, but my theory is that if you are out of something easy to make, and it's two hours before closing: make more. The other insight I had came when I ordered the hot pretzels one night, and decided I would rather have butter than cheese sauce or mustard. There was none. I'm sorry, but if you don't have butter in the kitchen, you're not a real restaurant. (Doesn't have to be in a individual packet, just put some in dressing cup and it will be fine..). Anyway, that's just one man's opinion.

As I mentioned a few posts ago, I sometimes go the the neighboring Applebee's, and from what I could see across the way, Buffalo Wild Wings seemed to be doing a pretty good business. Coupled with the recent closings of the nearby Wild Wing at Sandhill and the Vista Wild Wing, it makes me wonder if the wings & beer restaurant is in decline.

Here is The State on the closing.

  1. Previously there was a Gilligan's seafood in that location.

  2. "it makes me wonder if the wings & beer restaurant is in decline." - In general, more people seem to prefer small, local restaurants and biergartens, where the atmosphere and menu feel "unique". It's why TGI Friday's, O Charley's, Ruby Tuesday, and other casual chain restaurants have reportedly been in decline for several years.

    Similar to the problem with Gap stores. As I wrote on that page, it became a symbol of mainstream middle class America. People wanted to be "free spirits" by avoiding it. The same thing seems to be happening with chain restaurants now.

  3. I was talking with a friend in the Charleston area about all the Wild Wing closures, and he said "Dude, everyone has wings on their menu now." So no longer do you have to go to the dedicated "Wings Bar," you can just go anywhere.

  4. While agree with that all that has been said, I think there are also three other factors.

    1. Because of inflation, a lot of restaurants, both chain and local, have tried to avoid raising prices by cutting down on the quantity, and sometimes, the quality of it's servings.

    2. The inability of some restaurants to hire enough staff has led to increases customer service issues, and occasionally, reduced restaurant hours.

    3. Th pandemic has altered people's habits about going out to eat. I know many people who used to go out a lot who now prefer to eat at home and some who are still so paranoid about the virus that they refuse to go a restaurant.

    Just my 2 cents.

  5. Those are all good points.

  6. All good points here. But this particular Buffalo Wild Wings had horrible service since COVID. Never had enough staff.

  7. The one on Two Notch was really a disappointment. I went there three times before giving up on them. they would get the order wrong or let the food get cold before serving it. a restaurant only gets several chances to succeed. if they provide poor service to their customers then the restaurant will not be in existence for much longer.

  8. Never been to this one. I don't get out to that side of town much. I noticed the quality of the food had gone way down at the Devine location. My sister in law literally got feather's in her wings.
