Great sandwiches!

An upscale designer hamburger joint with ribs and chicken. The french fries are the best. A sleeper on the menu is the vegetarian sandwich with entire garden covered with cheese and humus.

Went to BB on a Friday night about 8. We were seated immediately. The wait staff was very nice, the service was fast and the food (wings, of course) was good (quality and quantity-wise). The menu is a bit limited, but one has to remember that's it's really just a sport's bar specializing in wings. They have a good selection... More

My colleagues and I recently held a social event at Buffalo Blues and had a wonderful experience with the management and staff. The manager, Suebe, was very accommodating of our needs in terms of space, budget, and the logistics of our party. The staff that served us was also very friendly and attentive. Our event was very well received by... More

Arriving later in the evening to visit a friend nearby, I simply wanted something to eat. Nothing special here, bar atmosphere with what I thought was mediocre food. I would imagine the restaurant makes a majority of their profit on beverages considering the menu options were rather simple. This is no way was a bad place... But it just didn't... More

A favorite college hangout of mine, I visited for the first time after a several year break. Food was great for bar food. I recommend the yinzer fries with roast beef and gravy. The wings are good but not as many favors as a few years ago. We sat in the bar for the first penguins game of the season... More

Buffalo Blues offers up consistently good BBQ, whether you order a half rack or their scrumptious pulled pork. The atmosphere is classically not that of a chain (that's a good thing in my book) and the wait staff is always friendly and competent. Good choice of beer to go with the BBQ and large bottomless soft drinks for those who... More

This place is ok. The food was average; sort of on the same lines as bar food. The wait staff was friendly and the atmosphere is very "bar like." Don't think I would take my kids here though.
