Wingstop and football a new tradition in Texas

This is one of my favorite times of the year, when I can watch the Rangers on one channel and the Cowboys on the other. And what goes better with football, than a basket of hot wings and seasoned fries? In fact, Show me a guy who doesn’t love football and hot wings and I’ll show you a girl. Ok so I agree, that may be a little bit rash but admit it, I’m not far wrong. Oh, and I apologize to all those cool gals out there who happen to love both of those things. Well in what seems a match made in heaven, Troy Aikman has renewed his contract to promote Wingstop for another three years. Like the rest of Texas, I say, if Troy Aikman says something’s good, it’s got to be good!

Wingstop was founded in 1994 in Richardson Texas, were the company headquarters remains today. Since that time they have grown into a nationwide franchise with over six hundred locations and Troy as their poster boy. But this restaurant is not all marketing. The food is in fact tremendous.  There are nine different flavors of wings: atomic, Cajun, original (hot), mild, hickory smoked barbeque, lemon pepper, garlic parmesan, Hawaiian, and teriyaki. The servings are available in ascending volumes: ten wings (which really serves one), twenty wings, thirty five (which serves several) fifty, seventy five, and one hundred wings, which is perfect for those big Cowboy’s games. Don’t forget that those also come with those incredible Wingstop seasoned fries.

While the Wingstop franchise is not technically a local East Texas business, it is a Texas company, and with celebs like Troy Aikman, and now Jerry Jones, hocking their wares the Cowboy name is definitely going to help sell some wings here. While the service is quick and takeout is available the chain firmly asserts that they are not fast food.


Personally, I don’t much care what you call it. Quality is quality regardless of the name. So with baseball season winding down and football season heating up, take a break from the usual pizza and pretzels, and try a Texas favorite. Both you and Troy Aikman will be glad you did.
