SF's first Wingstop is open in Bayview

The much anticipated Wingstop Chicken Restaurant celebrated its grand opening yesterday at the new 5698 Third Street (at Bancroft) location in San Francisco's Bayview neighborhood. 

Wingstop's Facebook announcement kept it real for those who have been wondering why the storefront sign had been up for so long while the doors stayed locked.

"I know, I know - It's about damn time, finally, and for real this time!"

The opening day delay was due to issues with the building that have been corrected, according to the owners.

The new eatery joins other food offerings in a neighbor often referred to as a "food desert."  While health-minded residents and organizers may not be happy about another fried food restaurant on Bayview's main drag, many other residents have been anxious to see Wingstop open. 

The Wingstop chain was first established in 1994, and still features buffalo-style chicken wings cooked to order after being tossed in one of ten flavors of sauces.

Bayview's Wingstop is the first in San Francisco.  Entree prices range from $10 to $30.  Call 822.9464.
