Native Grill & Wings, an award-winning 27-unit restaurant chain known for having the best wings in Arizona and being the first to introduce chicken wings to the southwest, opened their newest location on September 29 at 2501 W. Happy Valley Rd.

“We are eager to build a connection with the north Phoenix community and expand into this area,” said Dan Chaon, CEO of Native Grill & Wings. “Whether it’s to catch your favorite game or celebrate a special occasion, we are excited to be the go-to spot.”

Native Grill & Wings (or, “Native,” as the regulars call it) focuses on high-quality food and being a family-friendly environment, unlike competitors such as Hooters, Twin Peaks and Buffalo Wild Wings. The polished sports grill proudly offers over 20 wing flavors – from Strawberry Hot to Ancho Chile Lime, Asian Garlic to Honey Chipotle – which guests can order by the individual wing, as well as an extensive menu of pizzas, burgers, sandwiches, salads and more.

“We are so grateful to have such a loyal following in the great state of Arizona,” said Chaon. “Our guests support to the brand has allowed Native to be the destination wing spot in Arizona.”

The restaurant is divided into a bar and restaurant, with approximately 30-40 flat screen TVs throughout, offering sports coverage for families and serious fans, and a customer base spanning all generations.

“It’s always exciting to grow with our franchise partners,” said Chaon. “We know the Holmes organization will make this location a hit and look forward to expanding our presence in Phoenix.”
