The number of eating options around the University of Southern California just expanded with the opening of Wingstop.

The chain launched its South L.A. location on Dec. 6 and will be open from 10:30 a.m. to midnight daily. Wingstop already has more than 70 locations in So Cal alone, but the popularity of wings—four out of ever five Americans claim to eat wings, according to a National Chicken Council study—prompted the company to launch a location close to the university. 

“Wingstop has a great, solid fan base here in the Southern California area,” Executive Vice President of Far West Restaurant Group Jorge Ortiz said, in a press release. “With wings currently being one of the most popular staple foods throughout the nation, we are excited to give guests another convenient location in the Los Angeles area.”

Classic and boneless wings are both featured on the Wingstop menu. Ten flavors, including “Garlic Parmesan,” “Original Hot,” “Hawaiian,” “Cajun,” “Teriyaki,” “Hickory Smoked BBQ” and “Lemon Pepper,” are available, as are popular sides like baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad and hand-cut seasoned fries.
