This Sunday: National Chicken Wing Day!

Posted By on Fri, Jul 27, 2018 at 11:30 AM

Thank you, America for another random national holiday!

This Sunday is National Chicken Wing Day, apparently, and to celebrate the occasion Wingstop will be offering five free classic or boneless chicken wings with any wing order at all their locations, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Did you know:
  • In 1977, the City of Buffalo, NY made it official when Mayor Stan Makowski declared July 29 National Chicken Wing Day, in honor of their beloved invention, the buffalo wing.

  • The Philadelphia Wing Bowl record for most wings eaten in a single sitting is 501 wings in 30 minutes.

  • In 2016, Americans ate 1.3 billion chicken wings for Super Bowl 50, according to the National Chicken Council.

Last year, Tucson residents chose Magpies Gourmet Pizza as the best place to get wings in our Best of Tucson contest. From 2013 to 2016, Wings Over Broadway was the reigning champion. In 2011 and 2012, Wingstop was the city's favorite.

Want to have a say in the 2018 winner for best wings? Go to this year's Best of Tucson contest survey and vote for your favorite! (local joints only).
