Whether it is for game day, or you are craving a finger-licking good food for movie night, few foods can hit the spot like chicken wings. Whether you prefer a straight-forward rub, or you want the wings coated in sauce, there’s always a flavorful option available. However, if you prefer to pick the wings up from a local restaurant than make them yourself, there is one less choice, as one local wings restaurant unexpectedly called it quits and closed up shop.

ALT Wings is an Arizona-based chicken wing restaurant. While you wouldn’t be alone if you assumed it came from Atlanta due to its name, ALT isn’t referring to the airport code, but instead, it stands for “All the Luv.” The restaurant first popped up in Chandler back in 2012 and has expanded around the state since. Up until a few days ago, there were three locations here in Tucson, but due to the sudden closure, it is now down to two.

The 802 North Fourth Avenue location unexpectedly closed. The restaurant didn’t give any reason as to why it closed, nor did it inform the general public of its plans. The restaurant hasn’t updated its social media pages since October, so it is difficult to say what exactly happened. The restaurant was able to make it through the college football season (minus the bowl games), but now, with a prime address on Fourth Avenue, a new restaurant will likely take over the location in the coming months.

Do not worry though. If you are a fan of ATL Wings there are still two other locations. These locations are separately owned from the restaurant that closed, but both are still part of the franchise, so you’ll experience the same wing flavors.

If you haven’t been to ATL Wings before, you can either order traditional wings or boneless. From there, you order a dry rub, hot sauce, or BBQ sauce for the wings. Dry rubs come in the house special, spicy house special, lemon pepper, garlic parmesan, salt n’ vinegar, and hot ranch. Hot sauces include mild, medium, chef’s special, Lucky’s Sweet Red, Cajun hot, hot, toxic, and smokey bacon cheddar. Lastly, the BBQ sauces include regular, honey, cajun, extreme honey habanero, and regular honey habanero.

On top of the wings, there are several fried chicken sandwiches, a chicken wrap, plus sides of fries (including cheese and bacon cheese fries), plus deep-fried biscuits.
