Ralph Willson was always great, even when it was Rich Stadium. We went about 15 deep and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Parking in stadium parking is definitely not suggested, however, the experience trumped the hassle getting out. I remember going in the glory days of the 90's and the fan base is still some of the best. .harsh at... More

Cool fans, great food and drinks...we parked in someone's back yard for like 15 dollars for the day. Easy walk to the stadium...on our way we stopped at a corner bar for a couple of drinks before the game It was a... More

I took in a Bills game recently with some buddies. The entire experience was a lot of fun! The tailgating scene near the stadium was great and I highly recommend one arrives early to experience that. The entry to the stadium was horrible - it took us the better part of an hour to walk the final 30 feet. So... More

They did a great job on the renovations to the Ralph Wilson Stadium! It looks very nice and open around the stadium now. But really, only Beer served on the 3rd level??? Do you think because they are less expensive seats (in relative terms) that people who can afford these tickets only drink Beer?? I was extremely disappointed in the... More

The Stadium is dated, but that's okay. Those who need 5 Star concession and red carpet treatment, you can sit in the owners box. Those who love football and enjoy stadium journeys, this should be an early stop for you. Tailgating was good, fans are nutty and passionate. And it's loud. I enjoyed my experience!!

The Good: Tailgating with my son in a parking spot within walking distance. Reasonable ticket pricing as far as stadiums go. The Bad; Seating in the "family" section is very poor; Metal cramped bleacher style seating. You would think these should be the seats in the best section, with the most comfort. You look around and see nice comfortable seating... More

Easy to access the stadium about 10 miles to the south of the city. Parking for $15 on local residents lots c.500 yards from the stadium. Quick security checks (no cigarettes or vapesticks allowed in - they'll be binned). Friendly staff and free game day programmes. An open air stadium and we contended with all four seasons weather in one... More

This open air stadium has withstood the test of time better than expected. It was a great atmosphere. The tailgating was entertaining. the people were friendly. the food at the stadium was below average, so get some along the street as you walk to the stadium. plenty of parking along the street and in the neighborhoods on people's lawns. a...

My wife and I are have tickets for the Bills/Colts game in Sept. It will be our first NFL game on only our second visit to the US. We have no previous experience of what to expect when we get to either the City of Buffalo and the stadium itself for the game. I have read that the locals are extremely friendly and are only to pleased to help visitors and lost souls like ourselves and i have a number of questions that i could do with help and advice on. We are flying in to Buffalo Niagara Int. arriving at about 8am and are staying at the Best Western on the Avenue for the one night, flying out on the Monday evening.

So any advice on the following would be a great help.

Firstly how to get from the airport to the hotel, we are more than happy to use public transport.

Secondly how do we get from the hotel to the Stadium, again public transport is fine with us unless advised not to do so.

What time does anyone advise us to get to the stadium, our seat numbers are Section 316, Row 30, if that's of any bearing.

I have read that Buffalo Bills tailgating is possibly the best in the NFL. What can we do about joining in, what time does it start, where do we go, who do we see, we don't mind paying our way.

After the game what does everyone do, where do we go to, hopefully celebrate the win or to drown our sorrows in defeat, i am a Manchester City FC season ticket holder, thats a football (soccer) team in the UK and we have our own after match routine.

Any recommendations on where in Buffalo to go on the Sunday night. We are both 51yo, so nothing too young. Live music or a lively bar or two downtown would suit. It is Buffalo, so who serves up the best Buffalo wings and should we be booking in advance. Best place near the hotel for a night cap, dont like hotel bars really.

We have all day Monday to go up to the Falls. Again any advice on exactly where to go and how to get there, again public transport is fine by us. Places for breakfast, lunch and we have time for dinner before our flight back to NYC late evening, suggestions are more than welcome.

I am sure the people of Buffalo will be able to help us make the most of our very short stay in your city and all advice, information and suggestions will be catalogued and greatly appreciated. GO BILLS.
