On Wednesdays at B52 Burgers and Brew in Inver Grove Heights, all-you-can eat buffalo wings are only $8.99 with a drink purchase.
And that’s one of the best deals in Inver Grove Heights. While B52 Burgers and Brews is known for its outstanding burgers, the wings are pretty good too, and some even go as far to call them the best wings in Inver Grove Heights. We at Eat IGH have grown to like the traditional buffalo, asian and dry rub wings, but are not a fan of the “hot” wing sauce (hey just our opinion, you go ahead and like them all you want if you do).
Another tip: We recommend asking them to be cooked “extra crispy” because they have been known to come out a little “soggy” at times. They should be crispy and meaty, and most of the time they are, but to make sure we get them crispy ask them to be cooked a little longer.
And one more thing, it’s B52 Burgers and Brew. Not B52’s. We wrote about how people like to call Aldi by the name of Aldi’s. And people like to call B52 by the name of B52’s. Maybe it was the musical group the B-52s, known for the popular and catchy song Love Shack, which results in many adding the s. Or maybe we in Inver Grove Heights just had a bad experience in English class at Simley High School and feel we need to add an s to B52, Aldi and even Cub (which is sometimes referred to as Cubs). Speaking of English class, we’ve noticed a large number of IGH and SSP residents, most also Simley High School and SSP High School grads, struggle with the difference between the usage of your and you’re. It runs rampant on Facebook.
For example, we envision someone typing this status update:
Hey Skip Skipinson, your going to want to read this article on the all-you-can eat wings at B52’s.
The correct way would be:
Hey Skip Skipinson, you’re going to want to read this article on the all-you-can eat wings at B52.
Here is a quick tutorial on your and you’re:
The word your sits before another word (usually a noun or a pronoun) to show that it belongs to “you” (your car, your arm), is of “you” (your picture, your photograph) or is related to “you” (your uncle).
You’re is a contraction of you are. It has no other uses. This is a 100% rule. If you cannot expand it to you are in your sentence, then it is wrong.
We know what you’re (not your) thinking: Who called and made you grammar police? Fair enough.
Anyway…back to wing talk. Record-breaking wing talk, that is.
We reached out to B52 Burgers and Brew on Twitter and had some questions for them. Really, just one question:
What is the record for most wings eaten in one night during all-you-can eat wing night at B52 Burgers and Brew? While many have pounded down over 50 wings, the current record for most wings devoured in one sitting on all-you-can eat wing night is 71. Here is the Twitter exchange below:
@EatIgh There have been many lads eat more than 50, but the most we can recall is 71 wings on a Wednesday!

That brings up another question, since Monday night is all-you-can-eat Meatloaf night ($8.99) what is the record for most pieces of or pounds of meatloaf ate on meatloaf night? Back to wing talk… The challenge has been set: Can anyone break the all-you-can-eat buffalo wings record at B52 Burgers and Brew? Who out there can break the current record of 71 wings? Spread the word, let’s see if anyone can do it. Happy eating – you’re going to love your next chance to eat as many wings as possible at B52 Burgers and Brew in Inver Grove Heights.
