Proprietors Ray and Lorri Bullock first opened Ray's Original Buffalo Wings in the early 1990's on South 96th Street in Omaha, Nebraska. Quickly earning the reputation as Omaha’s best Buffalo Chicken Wing the eatery went on to win “Best Wing” in Omaha 9 out of 10 years it was open.
Our history actually starts in Buffalo, NY where Ray was raised and first started eating Chicken Wings in the 1960's.... Like most kids in the Buffalo area he worked at a local pizzeria in the 70's and learned how to make the culinary delights. It took another 20 years for the craze to hit Omaha!
For 10 years Ray's served the best Buffalo Wings in the city and by many accounts in the entire Midwest! However both Ray and Lorri also had full time jobs outside of running a restaurant as well as 4 kids they were raising, so Ray's closed just after the start of the new century.
Now after a decade plus has gone by, the kids are grown and gone. Ray's job of 27 years has recently come to an end and it was a natural fit to re-open Ray's Wings, now with our next generation in the fold. Ray and Lorri's son Tom is now part of the team!
As in the past Ray's will serve the same award winning Buffalo Style chicken wings and Chicken Fingers with both the ever so addicting Buffalo Style sauce as well as our homemade BBQ sauce and Blue Cheese dressing will be available as well so have no fear, the old Ray's is here again.
Here is the some more really good news, we will also be featuring a number of other Buffalo, NY favorites, burgers and other griddle faire too. All of this will be available for take-out or please sit down, have a cold beer and enjoy the awesome atmosphere and personalities that you will find at Midtown Crossing. There is NO better place in Omaha to get Wings and Beer than Ray’s Original Buffalo Wings located at Midtown Crossing!
