We just got a BWW at our local mall...any comments, good or bad, re: PA? I joke that it must be in the lease contracts to cook w/ pn oil at our mall, b/c every restaurant that's there does, but hope springs eternal.

We go to BWW every Thursday night for their boneless wing special. Honestly, the food isn't stellar but it's become a habit for us. Definitely ask what oil they fry their food in. EVERYTHING is fried. All of the wing sauces are definitely safe.
**They do serve a peanut butter pie for dessert (made off site).

We eat there often when we are meeting friends, earlier this week actually! HA! I noticed on the menu this time in fine print...please notify the manager if you have any dietary concerns. I had called and spoken to a manager once previously about the oils and such and felt comfortable with his explanation. This time, the manager said she "should" be fine...but that if someone served PB pie and then touched food there could be cross contamination. SO, I nicely asked if he could note on our order or write on the order..OR talk to the kitchen and let them know..he said he would..she was fine. We have eaten there several times with no issues...she always gets the Mac n' Cheese and french fries.

My PA/TNA 15 y.o. son was invited to a birthday party which included eating out with a group of friends at Buffalo Wild Wings. This is the age where you encourage their independence and ability to handle their allergy w/o mom my their side (they just want to feel 'normal'). So we took him there for dinner the week before the party for a trial run. The waitstaff was already educated about allergies and assured us that it was safe to eat there (minus the pie). He just ordered the boneless wings with two pretty mild sauces. The party went great, and he has since gone to another party there, all with success! He, of course, had his rescue kit with him in his backpack, made sure he had a well charged cell phone, and the hostess-mom knew all about his allergies. One more restaurant to add to our safe list.

I'm a little confused, maybe it varies by location? We were told that there was peanut oil in the shortening they use in the fryer at our local BWW so we stopped eating there - I miss it! I do seem to remember this being an issue for other restaurants though, that the oil might not be the same everywhere.

My son loves buffalo wings. We've eaten there many times. We always ask whenever we visit a new location and none of them here in Michigan (that we've eaten at, anyway) fry in peanut oil. Their wings are tasty!
