Texas restaurant association names houston's wing joint, big city wings, winner of the people's choice 2022 golden fork award

Big City Wings was crowned the Golden Fork winner during the 2022 Golden Fork Gala, benefiting the Texas Restaurant Foundation

Houston, TX  (  Each year, the Greater Houston Texas Restaurant Association (GHTRA) hosts its annual Golden Fork Gala, its largest fundraising event of the year. The gala honors industry leaders while raising funds for the Texas Restaurant Foundation, ProStart Culinary Curriculum, their local scholarship fund, and their Greater Houston chapter. During the gala, the GHTRA nods to community favorites with their Golden Fork Awards presentation.

Following a people’s choice vote, Houston’s Wing Joint, Big City Wings, took home the Golden Fork People’s Choice award during Saturday’s Golden Fork Gala. The wing restaurant, which boasts eleven locations throughout the Houston metro area, beat out other notable local eateries, such as BB’s Tex-Orleans, KP’s Kitchen, Goode Company Seafood, and Mi Pueblito Restaurant, to take home the gold.

Big City Wings, known for its large televisions, craft spirits and delicious comfort food, offers diners daily specials, like its famous Two-for-Tuesday, as well as an extensive Happy Hour menu. Those stopping by for a quick lunch can take advantage of their reduced lunch prices, while wing lovers can choose from 19 different wing sauces, such as Gold Fever, Tajín, Cool Ranch, or Mango Habanero.

About the award, Sam Elsaadi, VP of Operations for Big City Wings, said, “We are so thankful for our friends, neighbors and customers that voted for us. It’s our mission to offer Houstonians with fast, fresh, and delicious food along with standout service, and this award validates our efforts. Thank you, Texas Restaurant Association, and everyone in the community who voted for Big City Wings.”
