Buffalo Wild Wings ‘GO’ Opens on Upper East Side

Buffalo Wild Wings

Following the recent opening of the takeout and delivery-only Chic-Fil-A on Second Avenue, another giant chicken chain has brought a faster and smaller version of its eatery to the neighborhood.


The space which previously housed a Taco Bell at 1258 Lexington Avenue (between 84th and 85th street) is now home to a Buffalo Wild Wings ‘GO’ – which offers the same menu of wings and tenders as found at the Minneapolis-based restaurant chain’s almost 1,300 U.S. locations. However, ‘GO’ locations do not offer alcoholic beverages.

BWW’s menu also includes a variety of sauce and dry rub options from buffalo (obviously) and barbecue to Thai curry and orange chicken. In addition, they have items like chicken sandwiches, burgers, tacos, salads and “bird dawgs,” chicken tenders packaged in hot dog buns and topped with a variety of ingredients.

This is Manhattan’s third ‘GO’; the other two spots are located on Park Avenue South and on East 13th and First Avenue. Buffalo Wild Wings also had a full restaurant in Times Square, though it closed due to the pandemic.

According to Restaurant Business Online, the first ‘GO’ opened outside of Atlanta in 2020.

The former Taco Bell opened in 2018 and was one of the first locations in Manhattan, quickly followed by others in the neighborhood. The popularity of larger Taco Bell restaurants at 97th and Lex and on Second Ave between 83rd and 84th streets most likely led to the closing of this one. Previously, the space was home to Yogurt and Candy World, which offered frozen yogurt, candy by weight, and toys.

Buffalo Wild Wings is part of Inspire Brands which also owns Dunkin’ Donuts, Arby’s, and Baskin-Robbins.
