A new fast-food restaurant specializing in pizza and wings is planned for Milwaukee’s northwest side.

Ahmad AbuAmmar plans to open 76 Pizza and Wings at 5908 N. 76th St., just south of W. Florist Ave. The new restaurant would replace Mister Bar-B-Que.

The restaurant would serve specialty pizzas, build-your-own pizzas, salad and fried chicken dinners according to its website. Other items like loaded baked potatoes and Philly cheesesteak sandwiches are listed as well. It would also do delivery and provide catering services.

Proposed hours are between 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. from Monday to Saturday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays, according to a business license application.

The 76th St. restaurant was set to open in December 2020, but a food license is still pending before the Milwaukee Common Council. AbuAmmar told Urban Milwaukee over the phone that he hopes to open before the end of the month. He said he has seven years experience running his own businesses, primarily cell phone stores.

Mister Bar-B-Que occupied the commercial unit on 76th St. for almost a decade. Another location had opened at 8322 W. Lincoln Ave. in 2017. Before that, the 76th St. location housed Chia’s Tasties Restaurant and Jillie’s Restaurant.

The strip mall, branded 76 Plaza, is owned by Ayesh Real Estate LLC, which bought the property in 2007 according to city records. The 40,800-square-foot, single-story property was built in 1982 and houses 12 commercial units.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article said the business would only be open until 12 p.m.
