Bluffalo Wings Co

HEAD COOK: Rick Alaniz

COMPETITION: World Seafood Championship

I have a bachelors in science and nursing and was an ER nurse for 11 years and traded it all in to open my own restaurant and cook for others. I am now in the process of opening my third restaurant 6 years later. I learned everything from watching Food Channel religiously specifically Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Restaurant Impossible, Eat Street and Bobby Flay and of course experimentation and hands on learning through trial and error with the goal to provide the best food and service as I would expect to receive as a consumer. I am the owner of Bluffalo Wings Co which received 2019 Peoples Choice Award and Lord of the Wings for Wingapalooza as well as voted Best Restaurant in Corpus Christi, Texas for 2019. I was also the recent Golden Ticket Winner for the 2019 Texas Super Chef Throwdown in Port Aransas, Texas in the Seafood Category and first time competitor for the World Food Championships. Excited to be a part of everything. Humbled and blessed by it all. Thank you for the opportunity.
