“We’re looking forward to all of the new friends that we’re going to make and to feeding off of that energy in midtown. Everything feels fresh and new and full of vibrancy,” says Ray Bullock, owner of Ray’s Original Buffalo Wings.
Bullock grew up in Buffalo, New York, birthplace of the Buffalo wing. He has been eating them since the 1960’s and making them since the 1970’s. He and his family are excited to bring that knowledge to Midtown Crossing.
“We are going to specialize in chicken wings. It’s what we do; it’s in our name. Right now, we have ten different flavors of chicken wings. We’re going to expand that and offer even more flavors of wings. All of our sauces will be homemade right in our kitchen.”
Bullock expects their space in Midtown Crossing – 120 S. 31st Ave., Suite 5103 – to officially open in early June, just in time for the 2017 NCAA ® Men's College World Series.
“It’s the kind of place where you want to sit, watch a game, maybe sit on the patio, have a cold beer and eat good, old-fashioned, pub food,” he says. “We are a family-owned business so you can, first and foremost, expect to be taken care of.”
The Ray’s name may sound familiar. Ray and his son Tom currently run Ray’s Original Buffalo Wings out of a south Omaha bar. The family had a restaurant of the same name in Ralston until the early 2000s.
“We were voted the best chicken wing in Omaha ten years in a row, every year that we were there,” he says.
In addition to wings, Ray’s new midtown Location will serve some other Buffalo, NY, specialties, including beef on weck sandwiches (thinly sliced roast beef, steeped in au jus, served on a kummelweck roll) and Chiavetta’s marinated chicken breasts grilled over an open flame.
“There will be a rotating surprise special on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Stay in touch with us on social media because you never know what our chef will be coming up with.”
Ray’s Original Buffalo Wings replaces Saints Pub + Patio, which is working to align its space needs to its current business plan.
