How Anchor Bar invented Buffalo Wings

On a Friday night in 1964, in an effort to feed hungry patrons in a pinch, the Anchor’s owners deep fried chicken wings and flavored them with a secret sauce. According to Anchor Bar’s website, the Buffalo Wings, made from a part of the chicken that usually went into the stock pot for soup, were an instant hit. From that evening on, Buffalo Wings became a regular part of the menu at the Anchor Bar.
