2014 is the 50th anniversary of the first Buffalo wings at the iconic Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York. So, as we do every year at Super Bowl time, let’s go to the National Chicken Council for some amazing stats:
1.25 billion wings will be consumed during this Super Bowl – that’s 20 million more wings than last year.
There's enough to put 572 wings on every seat in each of the 32 NFL stadiums.
There will be no chicken wing shortage this year; in fact, chicken wings will be about 5% cheaper than they were last year.

Bimbo’s menu includes seven varieties of nachos, including Peppered Shredded Beef with organic beans and guacamole, and the popular Stoner Nachos: a mound of nacho-cheese Doritos topped with melted Jack cheese, jalapeños, house-made pico de gallo salsa and cumin–lime sour cream. There’s the option of adding chicken, pork verde, beef or vegan chipotle chicken to any of the nachos.
