Okay…is there anything better than Classic Buffalo Wings?  In our book…not much.  Especially on game day…double, triple…or quadruple this recipe, and you’ll be the fan-favorite, without doubt.   Just so perfect.  And I do have to say…take the little extra effort, and make the homemade blue cheese dip.   It’s all just so GOOD!!

Another classic pub-style appetizer are our awesome Fried Pickles with Ranch!

Again, these are classic wings, I think they’re even better than what you get at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, where they were invented…but we’ll let you be the judge of that.  Yum!!
