The Lehigh Valley now has two Buffalo Wild Wings. A new restaurant has opened in what used to be parking-lot space at the Whitehall Mall on Grape Street in Whitehall. The grand opening is today.
A Buffalo Wild Wings opened on Dryland Way in Easton about two years ago.
"It's been a long time in coming," said general manager Mike Block, who is going to the Whitehall restaurant from the Easton location. "… We're excited to become a part of the community here."
The restaurant is new construction and was built in a little over three months.
The restaurant specializes in Buffalo wings in a variety of 16 signature sauces and five seasonings.
There also is a full menu of pub-style fare ranging from burgers to flatbreads and salads.
The restaurant also has a full bar with cocktails and a variety of domestic, import and craft beers.
The chain was founded in 1982 in Ohio. It has a strong sports theme, with several large-screen televisions each at its restaurants.
The Whitehall location will employ about 150 mostly part-time staffers. It is open seven days a week.
