Initially named Knockout Wings when Eater Vegas ruined the surprise of a $1.2 million chicken wing concept headed to Strip, the lightly boxing themed venture has been re-named Ringer Wings, Pizza & Sliders and is now open for business.
Located on the north side of the Planet Hollywood Resort sports book, Ringer is partnered with Pin-Up Pizza to provide "the only restaurant and sports book that are combined," a technicality win that manages to side-step the multitude of directly adjacent dining options up and down the Strip.
Despite Planet Hollywood's tenuous link to the sweet science, "gorgeous Ringer girls" will be part of the custom uniform wearing wait-staff. Diners have access to video gaming and can watch the sports book's multiple video screens.
On the menu, chicken wings priced from five for $7 to 15 for $17. Sauce options include parmesan garlic, teriyaki pineapple and jalapeño tequila lime.
Competing with Gordon Ramsay BurGR, which sits across the casino floor, Ringer sells sliders priced at three singles for $5, or six doubles for $12. They also feature waffle fries, "veggie dippers" and offer a bucket of five beers for $25. Fifteen-inch slices are brought over from Pin-Up Pizza located a few steps away.
Opening hours are currently 11 a.m. to midnight daily. Ringer boasts it is ready to "knockout the competition" with their fare, but will soon walk into a genuine fight on property to test their poultry prowess. Just around the corner from Ringer, a 16,928-square-foot Buffalo Wild Wings is readying to take over the former Harmon Theater later this year. Construction work on that project has begun.
