I had always heard good things about Buffalo Wild Wings, but had never had the opportunity to try it.  A shame for anyone, but especially for someone married to a self-proclaimed wing conaisseur.

Arriving early for a kids’ matinee, we finally found ourselves right next to a B-Dubs, as it’s more commonly known.  We had time and were determined not to miss the chance to try it out.  But would it be allergy-friendly?!

Upon asking the hostess about food allergies, a manager was immediately called to the scene arriving with a print out of all of their menu items in an allergen list [also available at www.buffalowildwings.com].  This food allergy chart shows the presence (or often absence) of Dairy, Egg, Shellfish/Fish, Corn, Wheat, Soy, Gluten, Sulfites, MSG, Peanuts, and Tree Nuts and notes were made for the presence of Sesame Seeds on their menu.

[For the record, Buffalo Wild Wings doesn’t appear to have any menu items that contain peanuts or tree nuts.  A big relief for most parents and FA individuals.]

Rather than ask about the dishes that were most likely to allergy-friendly, this list surprised us with items we might not have considered.  The manager continued to be very helpful while we ordered and checked in again after the food arrived.

And, by the way, the wings lived up to the hype.  We’ll definitely be going back.
