Headed to the mall to return holiday gifts or shop sales?
If lunch or supper is part of the holiday shopping plan, have you tried Largo Mall's new Buffalo Wild Wings or Firehouse Subs yet?
The community watched as the new Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant was built this summer on busy Ulmerton Road. The restaurant opened on Oct. 7, just in time for plenty of fall sports action on the TVs all around the sports bar.
Besides 16 signature sauces and five dry seasonings for wings, Buffalo Wild Wings offers a full menu, including "savory" salads, wraps, and build-your-own burgers. The sports bar has 46 special high-definition TVs for plenty of sports action. The restaurant has an outdoor patio dining area, also.
Just ten days later, the new Firehouse Subs at the Largo Mall held its grand opening on Oct. 17.
Known for its steamed subs, the Largo Mall store has the popular selection of firehouse-themed sandwiches like the Hook & Ladder, which has smoked turkey breast, Virginia honey ham, and melted Monterey Jack. Plus, the chain's full range of subs, salads, chili and more are available.
Firehouse Subs co-founder, Robin Sorensen came to Largo for the store's grand opening. Although the plan, was just one sub shop (the original store is in Jacksonville), the chain has more than 550 restaurants now.
Each store reflects the local town. The Largo Mall store has a giant mural with Largo City Hall, the statue of the kids holding hands in Largo Central Park and a fire engine from Largo's Station 39 on 134th Avenue North.
