Had no idea BWW's was struggling by the looks of pretty much every Chicagoland location being packed almost daily.

Think the food quality at BWW has been on the decline

I like BWW, but only go on boneless thursdays, otherwise its like $60 w/ tip for 2 people . Also, where are these low grocery store prices they speak of?

I glanced at the title and read "Arby's is buying BMW" and was blown away! Huge let down when I opened the link and it spelled out Buffalo Wild Wings.

Wasn't that long ago that Arby's was struggling financially, too. I read this story earlier today and was thinking they have really turned around their financial fortunes (literally). Wonder where they got the money to expand their menu, rehab the stores and now buy BWW?

This is where I prefer Hooters wings over BWW.

That said, there is stout competition in an over saturated restaurant market. Have no idea what Arby's is going to do with BWW.

Would think Arby's would join forces with another fast food (say Popeyes) as we've seen with KFC / Taco Bell.

I'm simply tired of paying $50+ every time I take my family out to eat. So, the lacking quality of BWW is not appealing.

We used to go there almost weekly until they flushed their lunch deal which doubled the cost.
$60+ for two for wings and draft beer. No thanks

Lmao no way... I could care less. What they don't know...


If you took EVERY place that stood against your beliefs and didn't shop or eat there, you probably would be eating alot of bologna sandwiches...

I had a BWW beef wrap about 2 weeks ago and it was no joke quite possibly one of the worst things I've ever eaten. I ordered on Thursday and got their discount boneless chicken with it, and even those were half bread.

I didn't know arbys was doing all that great to be able to buy anyone out either. They make great stuff but it's expensive.

I had a Buffalo Bleu burger at the one in Normal a month or so ago, it was actually pretty good. First time I ever got anything except wings or beer there.... I haven't been to Hooters in years, but the Shorewood and Normal BWWs seem to do alright with the boned wings. It's no Mister Spots or Cooter Brown's or Wings 'n' Things, but they've seemed to be decent quality to me, and they have a wide variety of sauces, which is nice. Prices suck but I haven't had wings that were as bad as the wings I used to get at Hooters. Plus it's nice to not have to deal with professional teasing. I am surprised they're hurting financially because the ones I've been to don't seem to have traffic problems... but I do wonder how much it costs them to paste their name all over a crap bowl game and plaster you with commercials every three minutes during games.

I love Arby's but they're also kinda pricey. Worth it, but pricey. The one I go to is right next to a TB, so my cheap ass usually decides on TB instead, but Arby's definitely has some decent change-up menu items when it comes to fast food. The only item I've had from there I didn't like was the meat mountain.
