    Default Buffalo Wild Wings on Danforth & Santa Fe has closed.

    Via Edmondite Facebook.

    2019 has claimed its first restaurant. Buffalo Wild Wings at Danforth & Santa Fe has announced the closing of that location with the intent to build another in west Edmond. Will you miss this BDub?.

    Well I can walk there from my house so from that standpoint yes. However, I rarely go there due to the smoke. I’m guessing they build a stand alone location and go completely non smoking.

    I wonder if it was a planned closing after the new one went in on I35 among all that new stuff. We went when it opened a long time ago in that strip center well before they started building their stand alone buildings.

    I was there about six months ago and the bartender said they were closing and moving to Memorial road (I believe in the Western area, but not sure). So, it's nothing new except for folks that hadn't been told.

    Well, if they move over to Memorial Road that would be a better fit, especially if they decided to go non-smoking. However, I am surprised that they just decided to close first, instead of doing what Outback did which was close after the new Memorial Road store opened.

    If they are moving to western/memorial that’s too bad for Edmond. Just another lost/failed restaurant.

    Reminder there is a new, incredibly busy BWW at I-35 and 15th in Edmond.

    We used to go to this BWW all the time when we lived up on Bryant and Ayers in Edmond a couple of years ago. Thankfully, we have a closer one where we live now!

    This may be the big thing here. How much of their business shifted to I-35? Also, I've thought it was unusual that Edmond had two, when Norman and Moore have one each, and Oklahoma City only has 2 (or 3 - can't recall). Based on how they operate elsewhere, they seem to like a decent spread between locations.

    Memorial and Western would be a good location for them, with Main Event, Top Golf, Costco and such.

    Buffalo Wild Wings at Danforth and Santa Fe was a "big fish in a decent sized pond". There was plenty of population in west Edmond and NW OKC that could go to this Buffalo Wild Wings and avoid Memorial road between Western and Portland. I could understand moving from the strip center to a better stand alone location in west Edmond, but moving to Western and Memorial is just a flood of an already crowded restaurant row. With nothing that makes it a destination dining place, and stiffer competition from everything else along that stretch of road.


    The winner on BWW closing in west Edmond...Hudson's at 192nd and Louie's at 178th and Western.

    Reminder here though, these were clear across Edmond from each other. Surely we have all driven all the way across Edmond, right? Damn near takes 30 minutes. It's a huge hassle. I don't think this closed because two Edmond locations is bad, but because they think they have a better West Edmond/North OKC location lined up.

    Anyway, I live within walking distance of this location. Last August, over a year ago, the manager on duty at the time told me they'd be closing on the near future. So this has been planned. And the food was no where near as... "fresh" maybe? as the food at the BWW on I-35. I really hope their move doesn't take them to Memorial. I hope it actually stays in West Edmond. Everytime I went there (which was frequently) it was busy. Even after the rumors of their closing had been passed around.

    I know the one at Danforth & Santa Fe was quite old and they had passed on updating it, as it was always the plan to build new, just farther west.

    Yeah it was VERY outdated in there. This BWW opened up probably in the very early 2000's, maybe even the late 1990's and has absolutely not been touched since.

    I'd like to see them build over by the Henry Hudson's Pubhouse on Danforth and Western. Rather than Memorial. But that's just because I'd like them to stay closer to that area for selfish reasons, haha.

    I imagine the new BWW will either be somewhere along Memorial or on HWY 77/Portland. Besides NW Expressway there really isn't any North OKC coverage.

    They originally looked at Rockwell & Memorial but that didn't work out.

    Now, won't be that far west.

    I think it's time to talk to my friends at Pluckers about opening up a location here. By far the best wings place I've ever been.

    Top comment on the Facebook page post

    “Yep. My hubby and I were regulars there. A few of the bartenders that have been there for a long time, one for over 10 years, had no notice. They worked last night, and got a call this morning that the store had closed, with no other warning. It is really crappy how they did the employees, they can't even transfer to another location, they have to apply. One girl had to drop all her classes for the semester at UCO, since she doesn't know how and for sure if she can pay for it now(she had worked there 4 years). It is really sad that they didn't care about the employees at all. The new one is currently under construction in Chisolm Creek near Cabela's.”

    1. It is always unfortunate that employees have to go through that from time to time at restaurants or stores. 2. Chisholm Creek? Haven’t seen Pete mention that, but if they are, going to be a head to head competition with The Chalk!

    Yea, Chisholm Creek is very, very surprising. Those BBW bois better come correct, or they'll be closing that location too.

    No, they are not going to Chisholm Creek.

    Knew you would know and it just wouldn’t make sense. The Chalk is going to be AWESOME!

    And yes, the I-35 BWW is great! Went back to the Danforth store back in November for the first time since I-35 opened, looked around at how outdated it was and thought “Yep, this won’t be around much longer” and sure enough, it wasn’t.

    That's what I figured. I could see them going to a location like May and 164th even with the wetlands issues. That tract is just begging for a new power center.

    Any word on what would be replacing Buffalo Wild Wings?

    Given the surrounding income demographics, another restaurant or retail should be "begging" to be at this location.
