The Native Grill & Wings Home Office receives valuable guest feedback every day, however, this past September, the Native office received what may be the best kind of feedback from a guest, explaining why Native is her favorite place to eat.

The letter came from Brianna, 12, an elementary school student in Phoenix, Arizona.

The letter read:

Dear Native New Yorker


My name is Brianna and I am a fifth grader in Phoenix, Arizona. I am writing this letter because I love your company and your famous wings. 


I know that your company works really hard. I’m pretty sure that on Friday’s you guys work hard. That’s when people come more cause they get the work off. You guys also have to work hard about the food tasting the same. You guys must need to hire a lot of people. I love Native New Yorker because of their famous wings. They are the most delicious thing ever. When my parents ask my family where should we eat, I always say Native New Yorker. They also have my favorite drink, Dr. Pepper. 


I love the fries there too. I love that they don’t take too long for the table. I like that you guys don’t put too much salt or too little salt on my fries. Your company lets people eat outside, that is so much fun. 


I want your company to keep up its work the best as you can. I love how it is. If you made it this far, good job!


Thank you for everything you’re doing, you may not know me but I come every Friday. 


Thank you!



We love hearing our guests feedback but getting this letter was extra special!

After receiving this letter, the Native Home Office visited Brianna and her class to say thank you for the wonderful note and to bring them some treats. Welcome to the #NativeFamily, Brianna!

#ThereWillBeSauce and New Pizza Pies

Sorry we’ve been MIA, we were too busy perfecting the new menus and acing our new pizza recipe.

Don’t we all yearn for a “fresh start” once in a while? (Just nod your head yes.) That being said, we gave our menus and our pizzas a little face lift. Just when you thought our pizzas couldn’t get any better – they did.  The new pizzas are now individually hand-tossed by our awesome kitchen staff.  Yes, it’s exactly what you’re picturing in your head.  Hand-tossed, hand-stretched, doughy melt-in-your mouth pizza.  With new dough, came new sauce that is a savory blend of tomatoes and Italian herbs. Lastly, we have introduced allll the cheeeese. Now, all of our pizzas use a 100 percent whole milk mozzarella blend that ensures creamy goodness.

So basically what you need to know is:

    1. New Hand Tossed Dough
    2. New Sauce
    3. 100% Whole Milk Mozzarella Cheese


Garbage Pizza

And you thought wings was all we did?  😉 With our new pizzas, comes the unveiling of our new menu. Don’t worry, it’s the same great food, just a different design that we think is pretty cool. #ThereWillBeSauce


June 2017 Menus

Whether it’s a side to your entrée, an appetizer or a little something extra when you’ve realized the 12-Pack just wasn’t enough, just order a 3-Pack!

As always, we appreciate our loyal Native guests! We hope you enjoy the new things at Native.

The Beauty of ‘Testing Days’ at Native

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We normally aren’t ones for boasting, but sometimes it’s gotta be done. Native employees are the luckiest people out there. Especially on “testing” days also known as “Research and Development” in the restaurant world.

“What’s that?” you ask, “Testing days sound terrible.”

Well, my friend, you’re wrong.

Because testing days at Native don’t require a paper, pen, and calculator. Testing days here require an empty stomach, an open mind, and a love of eating (sometimes past the point of comfort).

Let’s take a walk down testing lane, shall we?

It all starts with an idea and, believe me, we come up with some pretty great ones. (Not to toot our own horn or anything.)

At Native, our team is constantly brainstorming new items to introduce to our guests and revamping current menu items. Because – well — we love you guys that much.

Our testing days consist of our corporate team and numerous different food products, blind taste testing, endless note taking and long discussions.

Every single dish that appears on the Native Grill & Wings menu has been carefully engineered by our entire team. We literally spend days tasting, tweaking, and perfecting everything single item on our menu before it’s introduced.

Whether it’s the tomato sauce we use for our pizza or the bacon we use for our burgers, we’ve tasted it all.

You may think, “A full day of eating? Sign me up!”And yes, it really is that awesome – who doesn’t love food?

And yes, it really is that awesome – who doesn’t love food?

Imagine trying about 7 different pizza sauces, 5 different types of cheeses, and 3 different crusts all in one day.

Can you say pizza heaven?

It may have been some of our team members’ greatest fantasy come to life – but we won’t name any names.

Research and development for menus is really one of the greatest aspects of our already awesome jobs at the Native Grill & Wings Corporate office. Not only because we get to try new things all day but we also get to know exactly what our guests are experiencing.

We love being the ones that get the first glance and taste of all of our new menu items and the chance to perfect everything before we present it in our restaurants.

When we go to a Native Grill & Wings and see our guests enjoying the food we crafted, it makes us happy.

Testing days also give us the flexibility to introduce new ideas that are a little outside the box (like a fried egg on a hamburger). While it may sound weird at first, after developing it to its fullest potential it’s culinary genius! *Goes to the nearest Native and orders the Hangover Burger*

All in all, testing days are simply the best days and an awesome part of our jobs. Yes, we may leave the office feeling like we never want to eat ever again but it eventually passes.

2016 Snapshot

If we’re being honest here, Native Grill & Wings totally owned 2016.  From opening new locations, making ordering easier than ever and putting our own twist on breakfast we made it our year.  Here’s our 2016 snapshot:

We Deliver!

We introduced delivery at 15 locations so you can literally get your food delivered to your doorstep and enjoy it in your natural habitat – whatever that may be, we don’t want to know details.

We made breakfast an all-day thing because what’s better than breakfast for lunch and dinner?

  • Hangover Burger – Because everything tastes better with breakfast on it! Applewood smoked bacon, hash browns, fried egg, avocado, lettuce, and pepper jack cheese. hangoverburgerr
  • Sunrise Pizza – Sunny side awesome! Cheddar jack, medium wing sauce, green peppers, onions, ham, bacon, sausage, hash browns, & fried egg.Sunrise Pizza
  • Chicken ‘n’ Waffles Wings – All the sweet without the sticky, a dry rub. Chicken N' Waffles
  • Morning Cup – Best part of wakin’ up is alcohol in your cup. Cold brew coffee, Captain Morgan, White Crème de Cacao, milk, and simple syrup. Morning Cup
