Anchor Bar, the birthplace of spicy chicken wings was initially established in 1935. Owners Frank and Teressa Bellissimo offers a menu that specializes in Italian cuisine that reflects their Sicilian roots.
On a Friday night in March 4, 1964, Dominic Bellissimo, son of Frank and Teressa, was bartending late when a group of friends arrived at the bar with ravenous appetites. Dominic asked his mother to fix something. Teressa went into the kitchen and found some chicken wings that were too exquisite for soup stock. She deep fried them (without any kind of breading) tossed them in a spicy secret sauce (half butter and half Frank’s RedHot) and served them up with a side of blue cheese and celery sticks.
The wings were an instant hit and it didn’t take long for people to flock to the bar to experience this new taste sensation. From that evening on, the restaurant became a local treasure and foodie hot-spot and Buffalo Wings became a regular part of the menu at the Anchor Bar.
Today, Anchor Bar serves up more than 70,000 pounds of chicken per month, and its bottled wing sauce now retails in over 5,000 supermarkets worldwide. Consumers can even purchase Anchor Bar’s famous wings online and have them shipped anywhere in the country.
