A Popular Wing Spot Is Coming to Slide Road in Lubbock
There've been a couple of changes to the Silver Bullet Smokehouse and Tavern on Slide Road in Lubbock over the years, but we finally know what's coming there -- and hopefully staying.
I personally think we don't have a lot of wing places in the area, so when I found out this new one is coming I got so excited. Wing Shack, which currently has 9 locations, is making its way to Texas and Lubbock. They're currently mainly based in Colorado, but they must be doing good to expand to Texas.
This restaurant was started in 2004 and does a unique spin on the buffalo sauce and crispy chicken wings. They have 12 different homemade and original sauces to choose from, ranging from a kid-friendly mild sauce to spicy ones to activate your taste bud, like Bear Hot sauce. They also offer a nice mix of sandwiches and wraps to salads and starters. I love how many awesome sides they have as well, including waffle fries, crinkle cut, tater tots and so much more.
Once they get here Lubbock can try the Bear Hot Challenge which means you have to consume 10 Bear Hot Wing Shack Wings in under 5 minutes. Now, this is not something I can do but I do look forward to seeing other people try.
They offer awesome daily specials like specials for students, 75-cent wings on Monday, and 60-cent boneless wings on Tuesday.
Wing Shack will be located at 5412 Slide Road, Ste 100. We don't have an opening date just yet. You can find out more information about the restaurant on their website.
