    BW3 online ordering

    Anyone ever order online from BW3? Was it quick and snappy? I'm thinking about ordering tonight...

    Re: BW3 online ordering

    Do they have an online ordering system? They don't deliver, IIRC, so it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense.

    EDIT: Had to look for myself and I see they do for pick-up. Obviously I've never tried it, so I've been less than helpful here. :)

    Re: BW3 online ordering

    Can you explain why Buffalo Wild Wings is abbreviated as BW3?

    Original name was Buffalo Wild Wings and Weck, shortened to Buffalo Wild Wings. The BW3 nickname just stuck. Or just BDubs.

    I've never heard of BWW and quick service in the same sentence before.

    No idea. I live 600+ miles away so it's of no consequence to me. But I doubt that stops some people.

    New ownership. Last I heard they were doing a remodel and it was opening up as a Brew Pub, no longer just a wing joint.

    If you call in your order for takeout, they tell you wings will be ready in 10-15 minutes. They will probably be ready in 7-10. Always done in 15 minutes maximum even during peak hours.

    Works perfect for me in Ames. It's cheap if Tuesday or Thursday, don't overspend on the tip or on pop, and you can go home and watch whatever you want on TV with volume. Also home court advantage in the bathroom if you get the Wild sauce.

    Sometimes this works out great... but good luck when its moderately busy, they'll be understaffed, the tiny waiting area (in WDM at least) will be completely full, and it can take you forever to get the food. I'll grab it for lunch though every so often and its quick in and out then.

    I have NEVER, and I mean never had to wait for my food for takeout in Ames. I have done this probably at least once a month since it opened last spring at the very least and probably more. I always get 24 wings so I have leftovers and I have gone at peak times very often.

    It is straight profit for them, which is why I assume they do it so well. They don't have to pay anyone to take care of the customer or anything, just put the wings in a box and ring them up.

    I thought the cheap Tuesday / Thursday wings were dine-in only?
