no other wing joints compare in my book! love their garlic parmesean flavored wings, blue cheese and veggies to start off.. if you get fries its a large quantity, I would advise you to share, you wont be able to finish.

Went to Buffalo Reef for wings and they were well worth it. Made the original way with a great sauce. Fried just right and good buttery heat. The blue cheese was thick and had good chunks and taste. On Tuesday they have all you can eat for $15. You start with 20 and already you're saving $3.50 from regular price.... More

Great, big, wings! Amazing blue cheese. Sauces are not that hot but are very tasty. They have some great flavors. My fav is the mango habanero. Sweet and spicy but not too hot. Can't speak to the service as we always get it to go.

homegrown greasy spoon kind of restaurant. Service is usually on par. A little bit expensive for what they do. Probably the largest order of fries you ever seen your life. A bit of a waste.

Found this place by using TripAdvisor. All the reviews were really good, so we gave it a try. These wings (and a burger) were so good! The wings were sizable, cooked to order and with plenty of flavor options. The hot is pretty mild, so feel comfortable going for something a little hotter if that's your thing. My daughter got...

BR has the best wings in Ft Walton Beach. They serve jumbo wings that are always delicious. I am typically a tradional-ist when it comes to my wings and I have only had the medium and hot buffalo sauce. Try the blue cheese dressing and you wont be disappointed. I don't know if they make their own, but I have... More

Best wings in the Fort Walton Beach period!!! Modest facility with a friendly staff. We enjoyed an order of the hot wings with curly fries. I definite must go to place.
