Family time is getting harder and harder to come by as our kids get older. We have a blended family with 6 kids and a huge age-range between our children. Oldest is 28 and our youngest is 3, talk about different stages in life. Once in awhile we gather up whomever is around and head out to have dinner at a restaurant. Doesn’t happen too often, but when it does we prefer restaurants that are family-friendly, which in my book means more than just a kids menu.
One of these such times we gathered up a few of the kids and headed to Buffalo Wings and Rings. Have you eaten there before? If you haven’t I really think you’ll enjoy the atmosphere and especially the food. It was the perfect choice for our family to enjoy a night out with our kids and try some of their delicious menu items. No worries about freshness, Buffalo Wings and Rings serves only fresh items, never frozen and a menu selection that is expansive. I couldn’t believe how many yummy choices there were on the menu.
Speaking of menus, we were fortunate to have visited while their BallPark Inspired menu was being offered. On top of the amazing selection in the regular menu, this limited-time menu has even more tasty selections.
You just have to see what we ordered, but be prepared, you may just leave this post very hungry! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!!! As an appetizer we tried out the new Ballpark Inspired menu and chose to order Ballpark Pretzel Bites AKA The Dipster, which comes with this amazing queso sauce….these did not last a minute at our table, highly recommend ordering these!
For our main meals, ironically my husband, daughter and myself all chose burgers. Guess we were all on the same wave-length at this meal, each was burger delicious and we were happy with our selections! My husband chose the Buffalo Ringer Burger, which is topped with sweet BBQ sauce, Applewood-smoked bacon, Cheddar Jack and one signature onion ring. As a side he chose french fries.
Next, our daughter who recently turned 18 and seems to have a newly developed adult-palate ordered the Fried Pickle Burger. Which has crispy cornmeal breaded pickle chips, topped with Cheddar Jack, tomato, lettuce and ranch dressing. A fun spin on a burger, she chose onion rings as her side. And also enjoyed a Coke Float off the Ballpark Inspired menu.
Now on to myself, I wavered back and forth over a few items, but ultimately ended up ordering the Apple & Bacon Burger which has Applewood-smoked bacon, Swiss cheese, sweet apples, lettuce and our tangy Bourbon BBQ sauce. It was delicious, I paired it with a side of the Signature Pita Chips, just to switch things up a bit.
Are you drooling yet? I told you the food was great! What’s also awesome about Buffalo Wings and Rings is that you won’t miss you favorite sports game by choosing to go out for a meal! No sir, with large TV’s mounted throughout playing a variety of sports, it is the perfect location to enjoy the big game and some great food with you family.
Now after a great meal, if you are in need of something for dessert we are going to highly suggest another item off the Ballpark Inspired menu…trust us on this one! We ordered the Battered-up Funnel Stixx AKA “Shugga” – Funnel cake sticks dusted with powdered sugar. Served with a “doubleheader” of crème anglaise and sea salt caramel dipping sauce. In 2 words…SERIOUSLY DELISH!
Since this was a family meal out, our little girls needed to be entertained a bit. Before we left our house I made these super easy printable activity pages that were sports themed. First one is a word scramble and the second is a Mad Libs style silly sports story. They kept them entertained and happy while waiting for their food. You can print them too, just right click on the pictures below! Dining out is just easier with your family when everyone is happy, wouldn’t you agree?
A much needed fun family night out was had by all! We enjoyed a great meal, fun family-friendly atmosphere and some great family time. PS…mom even had the Pinch Hit Punch off the Ballpark Inspired menu, it was a delicious adult beverage. If you have a Buffalo Wings and Rings in your area, you should really check it out!
