History of Business: While there are three Shooters Wings & Things in the Valley, only one has a full service bar and that is in Turlock.
Located away from the downtown hub of restaurants, the sports bar has become a local favorite for those looking to enjoy some drinks and watch a game. While the Patterson and Manteca locations offer beer and wine, at Turlock the locals can enjoy a range of cocktails as well.
“We have regulars at all three locations, but we have a lot of people that stop in more often just to have a drink at the Turlock location,” explained General Manager Blake Gray, noting that for many in the community it’s a social place to meet. “You could say we have two to three groups that come in on a regular basis.”
Shooters prides itself on always showcasing the most anticipated sports games and even offers draft beer specials when Bay Area teams like the San Francisco Giants and Oakland A’s are playing.
While the full bar is certainly appealing for some customers, there is also a range of food options. The wings, burgers, and tri-tip sandwiches are the most popular, but Shooters also offers a full menu of American cuisine items for lunch and dinner seven days a week. If that’s not enough, Gray said the restaurant’s emphasis on good customer service makes for an ideal location to enjoy a good meal.
“Good service is a big deal to us. We try to make sure that’s something we keep consistent,” said Blake.
