Buffalo Wild Wings is attracting controversy after some of the chain’s company-owned restaurants have begun posting signs banning guns on the property. KDKA reports photos taken at restaurants around the nation are popping up on social media sites, showing signs stating that guns are not allowed inside the buildings. The move has sparked outrage on the company’s official Facebook page. "It's your right to disarm your customers as is our right to go eat elsewhere from now on to prevent becoming a victim,” said one poster. “I changed banks for the same reason.” In a statement to KDKA, officials at Buffalo Wild Wings' corporate headquarters said the company “respects the right of individuals to carry firearms. "One of our top priorities is …

Buffalo Wild Wings is a sports bar, and the main feature of the décor is lots and lots of televisions.
Buffalo Wild Wings is a chain restaurant with more than 650 locations in 42 states. It specializes in wings with 14 signature sauces as well as other casual foods. It's a popular spot for people of all ages. The Cranberry restaurant, which opened March 27, is the newest location in Pennsylvania. Overview: The first thing you notice about the Buffalo Wild Wings in Cranberry is that it's loud. Not the people -- it was practically empty when we arrived -- but the music. It's turned up to a decibel level that makes it almost impossible to carry on a conversation without yelling. But friendly people meet you at the door, including Joe the manager, and you're given a choice of sitting in the restaurant area or lounge. The restaurant area has …

Local fans share their superstitions and make predictions.
Where better to find local sports fans than their favorite sports bar, watching their favorite teams? To find out how Steelers’ fans will be watching the big Steelers playoff game against the New York Jets this Sunday, I visited two Richland hotspots during last night’s Penguins game. At Buffalo Wild Wings in Gibsonia, the crowd was eating – what else? -- wings and cheering on the Penguins toward their victory against the Detroit Red Wings. Cashier and greeter Rob Gerty of Richland will be working during Sunday's game, but the restaurant allows employees to wear their favorite game-day shirts. He just doesn’t know which one of his three Steelers jerseys he will choose. “I rotate, I don’t have just one that brings good luck,” said Gerty, …
