Wings

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... read more

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

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

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.
