TORONTO — Greater Toronto Area wing enthusiasts are getting a taste of Wacky Wings, a new resto inside Mississauga, Ont.’s Playdium complex.
The eatery, which opened in the 16,000-square-foot space on Feb. 3, is the third location for the Craig and Damon Burgess-owned Wacky Wings Eatery and Beverage Co. The sibling team opened the first resto in 2007 in Sault Ste Marie and a second one nearby a few years later.
The Mississauga site holds more than 500 people in a space that includes a restaurant, a 65-screen sports bar and a fun zone, which features the latest interactive games and 25 billiard tables. The varied menu includes more than 100 wing flavours, burgers, sandwiches, wraps, salads, appetizers and pizza.
And, the restaurant design pays homage to Canada. “Similar to the original Sault Ste. Marie locations, the walls of the Mississauga venue are covered in spectacular Northern white cedar, while custom-designed wooden tables and chairs evoke the natural beauty of a Muskoka log cabin,” reads a company press release.
The opening comes on the heels of a wing war (http://foodserviceandhospitality.com/national/central/2612-wild-wing-files-lawsuit-against-bww-.html) in Ontario where the U.S.-based Buffalo Wild Wings, Inc. is facing legal opposition from the founder of the Aurora, Ont.-based Wild Wing chain in regard to the Canuck operation’s trademarked brand name.
