We've been coming to Alton's for over 30 years and it is still the very best of Buffalo's home cooking. I especially enjoy the beef on weck, my very favorite. This time we met with relatives from Australia, all of us making a sad hospice visit. Although the restaurant is not fancy with tablecloths, it is immaculately clean with terrific... More

We arrived late in the Buffalo area after flying in from Los Angeles. We were ready for dinner but not too many places serve around 10:45PM! Our hotel recommended Alton's and it was just up the street on Walden Ave. Service with a smile and good food. Our server was very friendly. We went back the next morning for breakfast!... More

This is a great place for fabulous Greek food at an awesome price. They have a super kids menu with meals for $2.99. We had a wonderful chicken souvlaki lunch here with delicious baklava to end it. Will definitely return.

Very busy place near Galleria Mall. Mostly Greek American with good souvalaki and rice pudding. Can get very noisey @ lunchtime. Had the lava cake that was delicious! Service is efficient and friendly. A very busy local landmark on a big city corner. Place is modern and clean and prices moderate.

In the area over night! Drove the strip looking for a non chain place. Soon as I set my eyes on this place we had to go. Big menu better than expected. Easy to find don't drive by it.

Alton's has food to please everyone in your group! My friends and I went here while on a shopping trip in Buffalo and each of us likes very different things. We were all happy with our choices and had plenty of leftovers to take with us back to our hotel! Prices are very affordable, dining area and bathrooms were very... More
