If you were waiting for the crowds to die down before you went to the new Wing Huts, you’ve missed your window. Both restaurants, one on North Broadway and one on East New Circle Road, apparently have closed.

“We are out of business,” confirmed co-owner Tom Liu, who opened the two fast-food restaurants this spring with co-owner Guang Ni.

In January, Liu described the food as “a downscale Buffalo Wild Wings, with some Chick-fil-A and a little Popeyes thrown in there. We’re a lot faster and cheaper, with drive-through and everything.”

Liu did not say when the restaurants closed but they were open less than six months.

The fried chicken from the Save-A-Lot supermarket off of Southland Drive is some of the most popular in town. Dessi Comley, the deli manager for Save-A-Lot, talks about their best selling steam table item and why its so popular.
