When I was ten, my mother took me to Buffalo Wild Wings for the first time to catch up with an old family friend. Unbeknownst to me, I was about to be introduced to my new old friend: buffalo wings. 

Sadly, my younger years were limited to a mediocre wing at the aforementioned establishment and saw little variety. What I did know: I loved wings; what I did not know: the best was yet to come. 

My first visit to American Wings came shortly after going through a serious breakup. I was looking for advice and good spirits with which to surround myself. So, a good friend and I made our way to American Wings to discuss life and enjoy each others’ presence. 

I found that what I needed that day wasn’t just a good time and comforting discussion. What I truly needed were the perfectly cooked and appropriately sauced wings that were American Wings. 

American Wings showcases a combo meal (ten-piece wings and fries) for just $7.99. Add a drink, and you still find your expenditures about fifty cents short of $10. This wonderful price, along with incredible wings, is a perfect formula for the best wings in town. 

As a kid, I was always told the sky’s the limit. This, on a physical level, is not true. However, it is absolutely achievable on a spiritual level. 

With two locations in Chattanooga, on E. 3rd St. and Brainerd Rd., American Wings continues to be the best wing both in town and for your wallet. I have shared many laughs, tears, and life over a styrofoam box of wings from this wonderful shop and plan to continue to do so in the years to come. 

Going to Buffalo Wild Wings for the first time gave me my wings. American Wings taught me how to fly.
