Buffalo Wings History

Anchor Bar, NYOn a Friday evening in 1964, Dominic Bellissimo was tending bar at the now famous Anchor Bar Restaurant in Buffalo, New York. Later that night, a group of his friends arrived at the bar with ravenous appetites. He asked his mother, Teressa, to prepare something for his friends to eat.

Teressa deep fried chicken wings and flavored them with a secret sauce. The wings were an instant hit and it didn't take long for people to flock to the bar to experience this new taste sensation.

The phenomenon created in 1964 by Teressa Bellissimo has since spread far and wide across the globe.
