HAMILTON, Ont. — This Sunday Superbowl fans will have a new spot to eat original buffalo wings, with news the Buffalo-based chain, Anchor Bar, is opening its first Canadian location today inside Jackson Square in Hamilton, Ont.
In addition to serving its famous buffalo wings, the new 5,000-sq.-ft. resto offers hand-crafted pizzas made in a wood-burning oven, plus, a variety of appetizers such as buffalo short ribs, poutine, sandwiches and burgers.
The restaurant itself is decorated with memorabilia from founders, Frank and Teressa Bellissimo.
The owners told CBC News the new location will open business to thousands of diners in nearby offices, Copps Coliseum and the Sheraton Hotel. “There are 4,200 people that work in the towers here; it was a no-brainer,” said David Copperthwaite, Anchor Bar’s co-owner.
Hamilton’s Mayor Bob Bratina will be on hand to celebrate the opening and toss the first wing into the fryer.
