“With nearly 40 storied years of experience, our big sister, Hooters, has perfected the art of making wings. That’s why we make Wings All the Ways, starting with our Breaded Wings, an original take on the classic Buffalo style,” the brand states on its website. The variety of wings also includes Naked Wings, Smoked Wings, Roasted Wings, and Boneless Wings.
