Ryan’s Pick: The only time I make my way into a Buffalo Wild Wings are for UFC events. I usually eat before I go and then grab some chips and salsa along with a few cold beverages.

Jen’s Pick: I wasn’t vegan the last time I visited a Buffalo Wild Wings; however, I would probably get a salad and chips & salsa. I would take the salsa and mix it into the salad a bit then use the chips to eat it as a dip.
