Back in 1995, East Coast Wings was just one restaurant in Winston-Salem, NC. But that one restaurant had a fanatical following. In 2001, Sam Ballas and Steve G. Kontos, two entrepreneurs with over 40 years of combined restaurant experience, decided to purchase the restaurant and build upon the formula. By bringing in industry experts such as Tom Scalese, they reworked and expanded the concept to introduce a new and improved Buffalo-style wing menu that is known today as East Coast Wings & Grill.
The Dinosaur Bar-B-Que began life in 1983 as a mobile concession stand using a 55-gallon drum cut in half. The idea was hatched by founder John Stage and his two partners at the Harley Rendezvous, a massive motorcycle gathering near Albany, N.Y. The three partners believed that bikers deserve a good plate of food and that the Dinosaur could provide it. For five years, the Dinosaur’s home was the road, where they served good bar-b-que at motorcycle shows, fairs, and festivals throughout the Northeast. Burned out from life on the road, the Dinosaur settled in 1988 in downtown Syracuse, N.Y., as a quick-service lunch/dinner bar-b-que joint. In 1990, the restaurant tripled in size, adding a full bar, full service dining and live music. Dinosaur Bar-B-Que opened in Rochester, N.Y. in 1998; Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Harlem followed in 2004; Troy, N.Y., opened in November 2010; Newark, N.J., in May 2012; and Stamford, Conn., in December 2012. Our bar-b-que is nationally acclaimed. Our food and sauces have won honors in publications such as Men’s Health and Eating Well magazines. We were named the country’s Number One BBQ on Good Morning America and have been featured on various Food Network and Travel Channel shows. Our spice rub and full line of specialty sauces are available throughout the country […]

It was 1974 when our country had its first gas crisis. The price of gasoline was skyrocketing, gas stations were closing nationwide, and carmakers began exploring how to develop cars that got better mileage. But for George “Jig” Warren III and Gary “Moe” Meszaros, it wasn’t about better mileage or for that matter even obeying the new 55 M.P.H speed limit. It was about finding a home to preserve the culture of those old gas stations and high-powered muscle cars. So was born Quaker Steak & Lube®, a “Cook Your Own Steak” restaurant that gave old muscle cars a permanent home, which included a 1936 Chevrolet, frozen in time on the original hydraulic grease rack. It is from these beginnings that the Quaker Steak & Lube® family of restaurants began. Today, “The Lube®” serves over 80 million wings annually, has bottled sauces for retail sale, has won the title of “Best Wings USA,” and has hundreds of local, national, and international awards for their sauce recipes. Over 60 locations throughout the United States and Canada, “The Lube®” is still rescuing muscle cars, vintage cars, trucks and a vast selection of custom and antique motorcycles, giving them good homes hanging from […]

The wings can be ordered fried or baked, but if you order them baked, be prepared to wait — they are made fresh, not sitting under a hot light waiting for someone to order.

In 1946, Louise Duffney opened a corner Gin Mill at Sheridan Drive and Millersport Highway in Amherst, New York, just north of Buffalo. It was in 1969 that the local tavern known simply as Duff’s served up their first batch of chicken wings. Selling nearly 20 pounds of wings a week, Duff’s began to create a name for itself and a reputation for having the best wings in Buffalo. It was around 1985 that it was established that Duff’s wings were indeed famous, and the name became official. Duff’s Famous Wings in Amherst, New York still operates in the same original location. Duff’s Famous Wings restaurants put the same tradition into making every batch of authentic Buffalo wings; the same tradition that was used when Louise introduced the wings in 1969. Voted #1 by The Daily Meal America’s 25 Best Buffalo Wings
