Wing Zone is coming to the Engleside Plaza shopping center on Richmond Highway.
The new Wing Zone at the Engleside Plaza shopping center is planning to open in approximately two weeks, a spokeswoman for the plaza’s management company said Friday.
The restaurant, located at 8634 Richmond Highway, takes over a spot that was occupied by Virginia Barbeque from 2011 to 2013.
Wing Zone will offer dine-in, pickup and delivery options for customers. The menu includes a wide variety of wings, as well as burgers, chicken sandwiches, chicken tenders and various side items.
Headquartered in Georgia, Wing Zone is an international franchise with more than 200 locations in the U.S. and overseas. This will be the third location in Northern Virginia, with the other locations at George Mason University and on Mount Vernon Avenue in the City of Alexandria.
Wing Zone joins an ever-growing wing market in the Richmond Highway area. There are two Wing Stops on the highway — one in Penn Daw, the other on Cooper Avenue — as well as a Wings To Go and a Buffalo Wild Wings at the Mount Vernon Plaza.
