Midtown Crossing is set to welcome an Omaha favorite to its dynamic, affordable dining collection: Ray’s Original Buffalo Wings.
“We’re looking forward to all of the new friends that we’re going to make and to feeding off of that energy in midtown. Everything feels fresh and new and full of vibrancy,” says Ray Bullock, owner of
Ray’s Original Buffalo Wings.
“We are going to specialize in chicken wings. It’s what we do; it’s in our name. Right now, we have ten different flavors of chicken wings. We’re going to expand that and offer even more flavors of wings. All of our sauces will be homemade right in our kitchen.”
“It’s the kind of place where you want to sit, watch a game, maybe sit on the patio, have a cold beer and eat good, old-fashioned, pub food,” he says. “We are a family-owned business so you can, first and foremost, expect to be taken care of.”
The Ray’s name may sound familiar. Ray and his son Tom currently run Ray’s Original Buffalo Wings out of a south Omaha bar. The family had a restaurant of the same name in Ralston until the early
2000s. “We were voted the best chicken wing in Omaha ten years in a row, every year that we were there,” he says.
Proprietors Ray and Lorri Bullock first opened Ray's Original Buffalo Wings in the early 1990's on South 96th Street in Omaha, Nebraska. Quickly earning the reputation as Omaha’s best Buffalo Chicken Wing, the eatery went on to win “Best Wing” in Omaha 9 out of 10 years it was open.
Our history actually starts in Buffalo, NY where Ray was raised and first started eating Chicken Wings in the 1960's. Like most kids in the Buffalo area, he worked at a local pizzeria in the 70's and learned how to make the culinary delights. It took another 20 years for the craze to hit Omaha!
As in the past, Ray's will serve the same award-winning Buffalo Style chicken wings and Chicken Fingers with both the ever so addicting Buffalo Style sauce as well as our homemade BBQ sauce. We also serve handmade burgers and other griddle faire too. We will have daily specials for lunch, homemade soups and holiday/seasonal themed items as well. Available for take-out or please sit down, have a cold beer and enjoy! There is NO better place in Omaha to get Wings and Beer than Ray’s Original Buffalo Wings.
