LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A surcharge added to bills at Lubbock Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants has now been dropped.

As we first told you on Tuesday, a spokesperson for Howard Restaurant Group, the company that owns the Lubbock locations, says they added a 2 percent surcharge to help cover health coverage requirements under the Affordable Care Act.

Now, that charge has been dropped, according to Heather Leiferman, Director of Public Relations for Buffalo Wild Wings, Inc.

Leiferman issued this statement on Wednesday night:

The health care surcharge at our franchised Buffalo Wild Wings in Lubbock, TX has been removed. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused. Our priority is to always provide our guests a great experience every day so they can enjoy our wings, beer and sports.

The charge had already been seen at Las Brisas Steakhouse, and the group had planned to use it at their Mama Fu's locations.
