Sure, there are a lot of places in Colorado get some "wings," but now we have the opportunity to taste the ones that made the bar favorite famous.

They began back in 1964, and with their 60th year, they now have a franchised location that will become a destination spot for many Coloradans, and out-of-staters, as well. Luckily, the spot has plenty of room for those who love those "Buffalo" wings.

The location takes over a spot that held a local favorite for over a decade; will locals embrace this restaurant out of New York, as much?

History Arrives in Loveland, Colorado

Anchor Bar, the restaurant/bar where Teresa Bellissimo created the dish: deep fried wings with a special recipe sauce in 1964, opened a location in Loveland in June of 2024.

It does seem like an unlikely but completely American success story: A son and friends are looking to Mom for something to snack. Mom throws together items that would otherwise be used in the stock pot for soup, and creates an empire. How cool is that?

From Bent Fork to Anchor Bar

In January of 2022, after 16 years of operation, Bent Fork the Grill closed their doors, leaving many disappointed diners. The location sat empty until Anchor Bar announced that they would be coming to Colorado. 

Original Buffalo Wings, Burgers, More

When you visit the first Anchor Bar in Colorado, at The Promenade Shops at Centerra, you're going to find not only the wings that made them famous, but many other menu options; gluten-free included. Bring the gang, there's plenty of room.

Welcome to Colorado, folks.

MORE Colorado Food: This Mexican Spot is One of the Best

After opening in 2008, Las Palmeras Mexican Restaurant has become one of the area's very best locally-owned places to get delicious, and authentic Mexican food. We found this place by accident years ago while driving hungry down Main Street in Longmont and have been regulars ever since. The owner, the staff, the food, and the drinks are all top notch and that's what makes this one of Colorado's top choices for delicious Mexican food.
