More than wings await Fort Worth diners when Pluckers Wing Bar opens its first Cowtown store.

Set to welcome customers in mid-July at Alliance Town Center, the store will offer sandwiches, chips and queso — the El Guapo dip a signature dish — and fried Twinkies, among other munchies. The store also brings 120 jobs to the Fort Worth area.

The restaurant, at Interstate 35W and Heritage Trace Parkway, will serve its signature traditional or boneless chicken wings and 19 sauces served in an eatery boasting 64 high-definition televisions, including a 100-inch LED video wall.

The Fort Worth store will mark the company’s 17h location following expansion into San Marcos and Killeen, as well as Baton Rouge, La. Those interested in applying to work at the restaurant can visit www.pluckers.com/employment.
