Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar Coming to Santee

It looks like something Santee is missing, a wing-centric restaurant, will soon be gracing our town.

Rumors have been flying about a notice on the old Hollywood Video building, at 294 Town Center Pkwy., indicating that Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar will be moving in. We can confirm that, indeed a "Public Notice of Application to Sell Alcoholic Beverages" was put up on March 1, bearing the restaurant's name.

Santee Patch has contacted Buffalo Bill Wings corporate headquarters, and is awaiting response. We'll update soon with an idea of when the wings will be available and a better idea of what you can expect from the restaurant.

Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar is a subsidiary of Blazin Wings Inc., and is one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in the U.S., opening 36 sites in the last six months, according to their website. This would be the only member of the chain in San Diego County.

They describe the restaurant as a "New York style wing joint with 14 signature sauces."

They are not simply a "wing joint," but also a full menu sports bar with burgers, salada, appetizers, TVs, a juke box, and apparently a relaxed atmosphere.

This is an interesting development, considering about Landre's Sports Bar & Grill coming into the , which is just down the road.

Buffalo Wild Wings is a family tradition back in Texas, now San Dieagans my wife and I are very excited to have one near by. No more trips to Temecula for W&W ( wine and wings). Our predictions are that this chain will be a major competitor in the San Diego area, beating out Oggies and similar bar/grills. Trust me San Diego, first trip to BWW will not be your last!!!!

B_dubs is the best wrong place on the planet! I miss it so much after having moved to san d. I went about once a week, and to clarify it is not a place for drunks, but sports. I have never seen a fight in one because their security is so great. And they don't focus in liquor they focus on beer and wings. Over sixteen sauces and they cater micro breweries.

Bringing up the point of Hollywood Video not having a liquor license is kinda' funny. I mean, why would they? I'm gonna' go out on a limb and suggest that the reasons Hollywood Video closed have nothing to do with the fact that they didn't have a liquor license...

What's the difference between a bar and grill and a restaurant which serves alcohol?
