Buffalo Wild Wings is tricking customers into believing they’re ingesting wing meat when they order boneless wings, when they’re actually just chicken nuggets … at least according to a new lawsuit.
The nationwide restaurant chain is being dragged into a class-action suit by a man named Aimen Halim, and he has some serious bones to pick here. Sorry, we had to do it.
In the suit, obtained by TMZ, Halim claims that Buffalo Wild Wings’ boneless wings are not deboned wings, as they would have customers believe, but instead are deep-fried slices of breast meat. like wings with a composition more like nuggets than wings.
He said he fell victim to what he describes as deceptive marketing.
Taste and transparency are not the only issues for Halim … he says that BWW is misleading customers to sell a cheaper product for more than it is worth, and he accuses the chain of knowing this engages in false advertising and refuses to change its ways.
Halim says that other restaurants that sell boneless chicken, like Papa John’s, are careful not to sell it as wings … and he howls furiously BWW not even mentioned in the fine print anywhere on the menu the meat is actually from the breast and not the wing.
Naturally, the man goes after Buffalo Wild Wings for money.
We hit BWW … so far no turning back.
