The magic happened when two childhood friends embarked on an adventure to create the best restaurant that they could imagine. From these first steps, Wing Factory became Lima’s best place for eating the richest and the tastiest chicken wings.
On our visit to the restaurant, we had a fun afternoon in the company of Rodrigo Urbina, founder, and general manager of Wing Factory. During our visit with him, he told us the story behind creating the restaurant, as well as dropping us tidbits about what is about to come.
Creators of the restaurant’s best recipes, Rodrigo Urbina and Frank Chávez, have been friends since childhood. Though their life paths diverged once they became adults, their strong relationship from youth eventually inspired them to reunite in order to create a world-class restaurant.
Before opening the restaurant, Rodrigo developed a great career line in the gastronomy, discovering his passion for service. During his many years of learning, he’s spent time with McDonald’s, Friday’s, Mozart, among many others. After 18 years, he realized that his own time had come for opening a one-of-a-kind restaurant.

During our visit to the restaurant, Rodrigo welcomed us to taste the top 5 wing varieties. After trying them all, couldn’t decide which was our favorite, becaus they were all delicious! We started our meal with appetizers, including a well-served portion of Cheese Fingers (S/10.90), featuring mozzarella cheese in abundance, which is wrapped by a mass of homemade spiral tequeños, and a delicious mayonnaise of avocado sauce.
After this great snack, we started with the most expected part of our meal: The wings. I’ve got to say that there is no better way to eat a meal than with your hands. The restaurant’s wings are so loaded with tasty sauces, that we couldn’t help but let it drip between our fingers. Thankfully, there were plenty of napkins nearby to wipe our chins and our hands.
The wings are reasonably priced. A serving of 8, including a maximum of 2 sauces costs S / 18.50, and a serving of 20, with 3 sauces, costs S / 35.00, and a serving of 30 with 4 sauces cost S / 49.50. All sauces can also be ordered with the Boneless version which includes 8 servings and 2 sauces for S/ 19.00, or 14 servings and 3 sauces for S/ 28.00.
BBQ Maracuyá: is a smoky sauce with a touch of passion fruit, making this a different mix.
As good entrepreneurs, by 2019, these guys plan to franchise the brand, open stores in different districts of Lima, and to offer a delivery service. More and more people want to live this experience no matter where they are.
In addition, they seek to bring this experience to the house with the initiative to pack and sell the sauces, just as they do with the seasoning. They also plan on offering their marinated wings and cheese fingers available for sale across the rest of Peru.
