Best Brawny Buffalo Wings in NYC!
"You want great wings? Go to a specialist. I'm partial to PLUCK U. Choose from several levels of hotness, and peer through the mortise in the wall as the attendant takes your fried poultry appendages and shakes them vigorously… The five-wing combo with fries and a soda is a great lure, but only the 10-wing box is enough to satisfy me."–Village Voice (October, 2002)
PLUCK U represented NYC at the first annual Buffalo Wing Festival on August 31, 2002. Over 80,000 people showed up to this amazing two-day wing-loving event in Buffalo. Our Hot Sauce and Gold Sauce were a big hit with the tens of thousands of people who tried them. Our wings were unofficially rated the BEST WINGS at this National Festival by thousands of those who came out and tried them. So come on down and try for yourself. Who's Pluckin' it today?
History - How it All began...
In their senior year of college Steve and Greg’s future had already seemed assured. Steve was on his way to law school and Greg had a high-paying job all lined up on Wall Street. Yet, that spring, they had a dream, a dream of selling Buffalo-style Chicken wings in New York City. So, Steve and Greg told the Ivy league and Wall Street respectively, that they were going to “wing-it” and thus the dream of Pluck University was hatched.
Our two intrepid pluckers set out armed with a little ingenuity, determination, and Mom’s chicken wing recipe. From there they developed their five secret sauces: Mild, Medium, Hot, 2Hot (Death), and BBQ. They added other items including, chicken fingers, chicken sandwiches, mozzarella sticks, their special beef chili, fresh cut fries, onion rings, and salads.
Ready to open their restaurant. the two plunged into the wing business beak first. And on that day, August 31, 1989, Pluck University was born!
Since then, the dynamic wing duo have worked their hardest to pluck out the finest Buffalo-style chicken wings possible. So enroll in the unique Pluck experience. You’ll be glad you did.
