Yes, the wings are hands down the best around. Wish they would step up their game on their burgers as they were just average. Good service and handled well considering the place was jam packed!

Was looking for a new watering hole to add to my list of favorites when visiting the area. Knew a guy from Newton who had come here and sat at the bar on a regular basis. So, when it came to mind, we thought we'd check it out. We were nicely greeted, ordered a couple drinks while waiting for a... More

My wife and I stopped in here after an afternoon Bruins game. We hadn't been there in years and just wanted to grab some wings for dinner. The wings came out fast, crispy, juicy and the sauces we chose were great. The only problem is they are now cash only so thank goodness we had enough on us to pay... More

We used to live 2 miles away. We were here every other week for their wings. We love the "honey hot" & "buffalo hot". The wings are delicious. The skin is crispy and the perfect amount of the sauce. Here is the other thing that makes them perfect...the ranch and blue cheese is made by them. Is not like the... More

I've been to Buff's pub one time so far, and it's baffling to me why I haven't been back yet. Buff's has some of the best wings in the whole area. No exaggeration. Go here with some friends, or some beer and a ton of wings, and prepare to have a great night.

I don't know how their wings came to be well known. They were small and when I asked what kind of sauce they used they said Frank's Red Hot!!! That can be found in any supermarket in New England. And at 10 dollars for ten wings it's not a bargain.

This is a fun, casual place in Newton MA known for its Buffalo wings. (Buff's). Their sweet potato fries and the burgers are also very good. If you want something healthier, the grilled chicken salad is also good. Service is efficient and attentive. Can't use your credit card here; pay cash.

Buff's is a cute little place. It's a bar/pub. The stuffed buffalo head is a nice touch. The restaurant was pretty empty on the evening of July 3. The Harpoon IPA on tap didn't have the best head- maybe it was towards the end of the barrel. The waitstaff were pleasant and efficient. We decided to do some chicken wing... More

Went to Buff's today with a group of 12 children and adults, to watch a soccer game and have lunch. There were lots of tv's and, fortunately, we were able to get seated because I called ahead and was told they don't take reservations. This is a small place. Service was attentive, though our waitress was pretty gruff and seemed... More

Called ahead to assure they would seat our family group of 9 (4 grandparents, 2 parents, and 3 kids). Arrived to find the person in charge at the door to be absolutely unpleasant, unwelcoming, and un-necessarily rude. Could not report anything about the food because we were told no table would be available for an unspecified amount of time. At... More
