Amherst, Massachusetts, and Burlington have a lot in common, including hordes of hungry college students. As of last month, they have another similarity: Each town is home to a Bueno Y Sano burrito joint.
So it should come as no surprise that another eatery with Amherst origins is popping up in Burlington. Wings Over Burlington will be located in the Blue Mall on Dorset Street. The take-out and delivery joint, slated to open in November, is one of more than 20 Wings Over . . . ." franchises.
According to Zachary Keller, 30, who owns the business with Jennifer DeMaroney, 31, the WOs are famous for their quick delivery, ultra-fresh chicken and plethora of sauces, including "mustang" ranch, honey lime and garlic Parmesan, alongside the typical hot stuff. "I'm a picky eater, and I like pretty much every single sauce," dishes Keller. They'll also cook up burgers, veggie burgers, fries and ribs.
Although Keller and DeMaroney are both locals and UVM grads, they discovered their calling in New York State. "There was a Wings Over Albany that was phenomenal," raves Keller. Instead of going to med school - he planned to start at UVM in September - Keller opted to become a restaurateur. Plenty of bones in either business.
In keeping with the airplane theme, Keller says, the décor is leaning toward "Vermont National Guard stuff."
