Buffalo Wild Wings aims for lunch crowd with new express menu


Want some wings for lunch? Buffalo Wild Wings, the Minnesota-based sports bar chain, is making it easier for customers to dine at their restaurants for lunch and still get back to work on time.

Buffalo Wild Wings rolled out a new faster weekday lunch service Monday, which is aimed at people who have less than an hour for their lunch break.

It's called the "B-Dubs Fast Break" lunch, with a limited menu featuring seven entrees and seven sides, and diners who are in a hurry will have a "Fast Break" card placed on their table to make sure they get quick service, the company said in a news release.

"We want our Guests to know that choosing B-Dubs for lunch doesn't mean forfeiting your afternoon at the office," said Vice President Todd Kronebusch. "They can still enjoy the Buffalo Wild Wings experience they have come to know and love within the limited time they have for a traditional lunch break."

Buffalo Wild Wings attracts more customers on evenings and weekends who typically spend a few hours watching a game, the St. Paul Pioneer Press notes, and the new express lunch is an attempt to bring more diners in during the day, when they often have a lunch break of only an hour or so.

The Fast Break option is available weekdays from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

There are 18 Buffalo Wild Wings locations in the Twin Cities area, including St. Paul, Roseville, Maplewood, Oakdale, Eagan, Oak Park Heights and Hudson, Wis., according to the Pioneer Press.
