From its world famous chicken wings, award-winning hot sauces and ice-cold beer to state-of-the-art televisions and sound system, WingHouse is set to become the signature spot for game day at 5510 Post Oak Blvd.
A ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening celebration will be held on Thursday, June 6 at 11 a.m. where the first 100 guests will receive coupons for one free order of boneless wings every month for a year. Additionally, the public is invited to an autograph signing beginning at 6 p.m. featuring Ker; Dallas Cowboys 15-year veteran Ed “Too Tall” Jones; and other NFL athletes.
“WingHouse has been a part of the Tampa Bay area since we opened our first location in 1994 in Largo. We’re excited to celebrate our newest restaurant in Wesley Chapel and to thank the community for supporting us over the years, we’re going to be providing some great giveaways and the chance to meet some favorite sports stars,” said Crawford Ker, CEO and founder of Ker’s WingHouse Bar & Grill. “Our atmosphere, craveable food and always smiling WingHouse girls will make our new Wesley Chapel restaurant the go-to place to watch sports, grab a bite and hang out with friends and family.”
Since its inception, WingHouse’s mission has been to be “Brilliant on the Basics.” A full liquor sports bar, fantastic chicken wings and award-winning hot sauces served up by the famous WingHouse girls, set the restaurants apart from the competition.

In addition to great food and drinks, the Wesley Chapel WingHouse will be active in the local community in which it operates. From supporting local charities to sponsoring events, the Wesley Chapel WingHouse looks forward to being an integral part of the neighborhood.
