EL PASO - Chicken wings are a popular choice for Super Bowl party menus and El Paso restaurants are preparing for the increase in business.
According to the National Chicken Council, Americans will consume over 1.25 billion chicken wings on Super Bowl Sunday.
West El Paso Wingstop General Manager Arturo Bustante said their restaurant is already taking orders for the big game.
"People place their orders a week in advance, that way they can get their orders on time," said Bustamante.
People usually place over 200 orders for the game. That's more than three times compared to average Sundays. Bustamante estimates selling over 1,200 pounds of wings on Super Bowl Sunday.
Area restaurants said it's best to place your order as early as possible.
