Wingstop coming to Greenville

Wingstop, a fast casual restaurant chain specializing in Buffalo-style chicken wings, will open at 1885 E. Fire Tower Road, according to a sign on the vacant space beside Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop.

A sponsored Facebook post from the chain notes that the restaurant will open at the end of February.

Wingstop serves classic wings, boneless wings and chicken tenders with a variety of sauces, along with hand-cut fries, beans and coleslaw made in-house daily.

The restaurants are decorated in a nostalgic aviation theme.

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Wingstop has more than 1,000 restaurants, including locations in Raleigh and Cary.
