I'd eat here for breakfast if they were open

I'd eaten at Duff's every time I traveled to Buffalo over past 14 years. For our 25th wedding Anniversary, I brought my wife to visit Niagara Falls. We made a bee line to Duff's right off the plane. We both loved it. Nice atmosphere, old building with no frills - let the wings do the... read more

We have eaten here several times and were always happy with the food but the service is poor and they jam you in like cattle. A member of our party was in a wheelchair and he felt very uncomfortable in or seating placement. His chair was out in the main pathway between the tables and he was constantly being bumped... More

Great traditional and ample sized Buffalo wings and chicken fingers, coupled with professional and courteous service.

These are the absolute best wings I have ever had, anywhere. Being a Buffalo local, I have tried wings at probably a hundred places. While it is not that hard to fry chicken, there is something about Duff's sauce that is just perfect. This location is a classic dive. Not nearly enough seating, everyone packed in very close together, one... More

If your looking for true hometown wings, this is the place to go. Not a real extensive menu but then you don't need one.

According to my friend who was born and raised in Buffalo, this is THE place for the real buffalo wings. Even President Obama went to Buffalo, he went there for the buffalo wings. And yes, it IS REALLY hot!

Great Wings and Beer. A Buffalo landmark, it pays to arrive early or prepare to stand in line. I love the wings here. Out of town friends who claim they can each any wing, no matter how hot, have been laid low by the wings here. You have been warned.

Been a favorite for 30 years! The wings rock, no whimpy little wings but big fat juicy ones! Celery and blue cheese dip are plentiful. Sandwiches are tasty and fries are perfect. Get a meal deal and a pitcher and you'll be in heaven.

I travel to Buffalo a few times a year and I always stop at Duff's. This is the original location, and if you're looking for fancy decor, go to one of the franchised locations. This location is a "Joint". The t-shirts say medium is hot, hot is really hot, etc. I enjoy the wings here as well as the atmosphere... More

Duff's may not have invented the wing as we know it, but they have been serving them in this location for decades and are known by Buffalonians as the best wings around. "Medium" is "hot" here, with the super-hot "suicidal" sauce full of flavor and packed with more heat than any wing you can find (except for Duff's "death sauce"... More
