Buffalo Wild Wings is duping customers into believing they are chowing down on wing meat when they order boneless wings, when in reality it’s essentially just chicken nuggets … at least according to a new lawsuit.
The nationwide restaurant chain is being dragged into a class-action suit by a man named Aimen Halim, and he’s got a serious bone to pick here. Sorry, we had to do it.
In the suit, obtained by TMZ, Halim claims Buffalo Wild Wings’ boneless wings are not deboned wings at all, as they would have customers believe, but rather slices of breast meat deep fried like wings with a composition more akin to nuggets than wings.
He says he fell victim to what he describes as deceptive marketing.
Taste and transparency aren’t the only issues for Halim … he says BWW is misleading customers to sell a cheaper product for more than it’s worth, and he accuses the chain of knowing it’s engaging in false advertising and refusing to change its ways.
Halim claims other restaurants selling boneless chicken, like Papa John’s, are being careful not to market it as wings … and he’s howling mad BWW doesn’t even mention in fine print anywhere on the menu the meat is really from the breast and not the wing.
Naturally, the guy’s going after Buffalo Wild Wings for money.
We reached out to BWW … so far no word back.
