Our Story

Welcome to the sports restaurant experience that goes way beyond just buffalo wings.

We're a club-level sports restaurant, worthy of the ultimate sports dining experience. With bright, inviting dining rooms, 50+ TVs, elevated fan experiences, chef-inspired recipes and of course our signature wings, Wings and Rings is the ideal experience for socializing with friends & family over sports.

This didn't happen overnight. For over three decades we've been perfecting the art of great food and great service. See how we've grown and changed.


Over 30 years ago, we served our first wings in Cincinnati Ohio


Buffalo Wings and Rings began serving up homemade bleu cheese and signature wings in Original, Roasted Garlic, Mild, Medium, Hot and Extra Hot. From the start, it was a hands-on approach that focused on food and flavor. Fresh wings, homemade sauces, and a dedication to the community we serve.
