Wings chain lands in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - Buffalo Wild Wings opened its first restaurant in Eugene-Springfield near Gateway Mall.

The chain is known for its big screen TVs and wings.

Customers Eric Salla-Day and Jared Thronberry said Buffalo Wild Wings is a great addition to the community

"Atmosphere, TVs, the sports bar-type feel," Eric Sallday said. "It's great for this town. I mean, it adds more places that we can go. It's good for Springfield, more jobs."

And more wings: the first 80 customers got free wings for a year.
