Buffalo Chicken History The war rages on as to who came up with the original hot wing appetizer, but it is generally believed they were invented in 1964 at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, N.Y. The most colorful story involves owner Teressa Bellissimo's predicament when her son and his hungry friends ambled into the tavern looking for a late-night snack. What's a mother to do? She fried up unbreaded chicken wings, dipped them in a buttered spicy chile sauce, and served them with celery and blue-cheese-dressing dip to cut the heat. Bingo! Buffalo chicken wings were born and have become a worldwide culinary sensation. Recipe Source: Frank's® RedHot Sauce®, reprinted with permission.
