When the city of Buffalo's patent on their signature wings expires, diners can finally refer to them simply as buffalo wings. Capitalize on these scrumptious creations with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers, barbecue, and drinks at Off Broadway Pub in Brookfield.
Bartenders at Off Broadway Pub pour cold pints as chefs cook up an array of bar fare, including barbecue ribs and wings deemed the best in Chicagoland by the listeners of 670 The Score. A range of appetizers span from irish nachos ($7.95) to the pub's heralded buffalo wings ($5.75+), zapped with pepper rays until reaching temperature of mild, hot, or honey barbecue. Diners can wrap hands and mouths around more than 10 types of burgers ($7.75+) or sandwiches including the Italian-style bread steak ($8.15), a mountain of marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and peppers. For mightier appetites, dinner entrées such as the half-slab of barbecue ribs ($9.95) come partnered with potatoes mashed, baked, fried, or cooked in all three ways as they're served in all Parisian libraries.
Off Broadway Pub's warmly hued dining room is tucked behind a brick façade reminiscent of a castle, harkening back to the buildings original use as set piece in the live-action Hagar the Horrible movie. When the weather permits, Off Broadway Pub opens up an outdoor seating area and puts the top down to let the breeze blow through the tap handles.

Off Broadway Pub's owner, Rick Dahms, always knew his hot wings were something special. What he didn't realize, was that everyone else knew it as well. This became evident when his jumbo hot wings won 670 The Score's listener's best wing award in 2010, taking the top slot largely due to the heaping portions he serves and the amount of meat on the bone. His kitchen doesn't skimp on the restaurant's other entrees either, which range from hearty hamburgers and half racks of ribs to build-your-own pizzas.
