San Antonio called, and Pluckers answered. After residents repeatedly asked for an Alamo City outpost of the famed wing chain, Pluckers Wing Bar announced plans for not one, but two new restaurants. Now, the Austin-based restaurant is announcing its first San Antonio-area shop will officially open on July 9, according to a release.

The new Pluckers is nesting at 14881 IH-35 in the San Antonio suburb of Selma. The chain will dish up its traditional menu complete with 20 different wing sauces ranging from classic Buffalo to spicy garlic parmesan to "mangonero" which is, you guessed it, mango and habanero. 

Customers looking for non-wing dishes can enjoy popular items like fried pickles, Holy Macaroni (fried macaroni 'n' cheese), and what we can only assume is the aptly named Bypass Burger topped with bacon, cheddar, grilled onions, and jalapeños.

In celebration of the new store, the restaurant is offering a $10 deal on its membership program, Pluckers Club, through July 22. Pluckers Club perks include food and drink deals, birthday offers, and event invites. Those looking for the ultimate Pluckers experience can take part in the chain's Fire in the Hole contest, which requires particiapants to polish off 25 wings drenched in the restaurant's hottest sauce in exchange for a coveted spot on the Wall of Flame.

“No city has been more vocal about its desire for a Pluckers than San Antonio, and we are so excited to finally be able to serve our loyal customers who are based here,” said Pluckers co-founder Dave Paul in a release. “We look forward to seeing all of the amazing people who have traveled to visit our stores across the state and to introducing ourselves to our first-time customers.”

In order to keep up with this desire, Plucker's announced in May it will open a second location in the Landmark Development at Texas Highway 1604 and Interstate 10. It is scheduled to open in spring 2019.
