Buffalo Wild Wings Bird Dawgs

Buffalo Wild Wings has a new Happy Hour menu with food and drinks priced from $3 – $6 from 3 to 6 pm on weekdays.  The highlights are $3 tall drafts of Wild Herd Kolsh by Goose Island and the all new Bird Dawgs for $5.  The Bird Dawg is a chicken tender stuffed in a brioche bun with sauces and toppings.  It’s like a hot dog, but with a chicken tender instead, so we thought we’d include it.  We don’t want to be mean to anyone.  Buffalo Wild Wings put out this press release about the Happy Hour menu.  The following varieties are available:

  • Loaded Bird Dawg topped with beer cheese and wild honey mustard
  • Honey BBQ Bird Dawg topped with fries and Buffalo Wild Wings’ Honey BBQ sauce
  • Buffalo Bird Dawg topped with ranch, napa slaw, and Buffalo Wild Wings’ Medium Buffalo sauce
