Wings Etc.

Founded in 1994 in northern Indiana, Wings Etc. Grill & Pub is a family-friendly sports bar that’s a welcome departure from highly programmed, big-box sports bars and trendy micropubs. Our philosophy is: “People love our food and beverages, and they love hanging out in our laid-back pubs: don’t overcomplicate it.” We’ve distilled that philosophy into a four-word promise: “Good Food, Great Times.” We are passionate about delivering on that promise and continuing to build a fan base that “gets us because we get them.”

Wings Etc. Grill & Pub: Not Your Average, Everyday Sports Bar

Wings Etc. offers an ever-evolving, but always “Big-Flavor-Focused” menu of pub favorites like our award-winning Jumbo wings and boneless wings. Plus, we offer hand-smashed diner-style burgers, grilled or crispy chicken sandwiches, wraps, subs, salads, kids meals, an incredible lineup of “Big Flavor” appetizers—even seafood favorites! On the bar side, there are dozens of beers in bottles or on tap, and a cocktail menu that features great daily specials as well as carefully-crafted signature cocktails and mocktails.

Wings Etc. continues to win awards and recognition, both at the local level, with multiyear “Best Wings” wins in many of our markets, and at the national level, with citations for “Fastest Growing,” “Top 100,” “Top 200” and more among the leading franchise review websites and independent franchise industry support groups.
