For the last few years, Wingnutz has gotten more and more popular. They started out as a kitchen in the Knights of Columbus on Kenmore Avenue. Then they got the endorsement of Pardon My Take, which is a nationally beloved podcast from Barstool Sports.

Wingnutz opened up a location at Froth Brewing Company in Buffalo two or three years ago, then a takeout location on Niagara Falls Blvd. in Amherst. Now, they are about to open their brand new location at a very well-known spot.

Wingnutz posted on Facebook and Instagram that they are about to open their new location on Millersport Highway in Amherst. It's the former Santora's Pizza Pub & Grill location, which was Santora's Phase II before that.

UPDATE:

Wingnutz announced they will have their grand opening on December 15th!

The new location will offer Wingnutz their biggest space yet, with a full bar and a private room nicknamed "Room 40," which was a joke made famous by Bills quarterback Josh Allen to Pardon My Take.

Can't imagine how packed it will be...
