We were looking for a quick stop for a bite to eat as a send off to a relative heading back to Italy. We did not want 'fast food' but did not have time for a true sit down meal. An ideal place would be quick, fun, quality, and 100% American and that is what we found. Adam the host... read more

In 2 weeks in the US and not once entering a chain burger joint, this was the best quality lunch and the best value lunch we had. We were not very hungry and the server suggested that two of us could share the burrito as they were large. We thought it was a good suggestion so asked for an empty... More

I was introduced to buffs by a friend who said the wings were amazing. When I stopped there for a few wings there was a nice atmosphere. The wings didn't take to long to come out and when I took my first bite it was one of the best wings I have ever had. Great wings!

I like the pub atmosphere, but try to eat reasonably healthy. This pub offered great fresh food dishes with fresh veggies, more than just wngs and burgers. Cash only though!

Haven't been to Buffs in years and I was in the area with family and friends. Such a great place for f&f. Wings were outstanding, burgers were so good, onion rings were yummy and the service was great. The waitress was very attentive and offered terrific advice of beer choices.

Went here for the wings based on reviews here. I must say I expected better. They are good, but in my opinion no better than you can get at several other places. And if you aren't a wings fan, there probably isn't much for you here.

The place was busy on a friday night. Small place but can fit quite a bit of people. Right across from the crowne plaza hotel. You can tell people from the hotel came over but it was also filled with locals. When we walked in we noticed everyone was eating wings so we tried it. I don't like that you... More

if you love wings, this is heaven. It's heavy bar food so get ready for a 10,000 calorie dinner. My wife loves the honey hot but I love the buffalo wings. Definitely a little packed in there, especially during game time, but I just don't care.

We wanted to try those famous wings on superbowl Sunday.We had no idea that they had taken the phone off the hook and would not allow us to order anything when we arrived at 6:00 PM. This is not their first rodeo. They should have posted these details on their website and invested in a voicemail. The level of inconsideration... More
