We have come to the restaurant for years. The food is great as well as the staff. Prices are well priced and affordable. For breakfast I recommend the Dens Omelet, the house special.

We were many miles from home at dinnertime and was hoping for a nice place to eat. We saw people going in here so I turned around and stopped in. It was a 'seat yourself' and we found a roomy table near a window. The Sunday Specials looked amazing. I decided on the one stuffed pork chop special and my... More

Wayside Family Restaurant serves good food at reasonable prices. The menu includes sandwiches, salads, and many homemade items including delicious pies. The restaurant is clean and the service is good. Not sure if they accept reservations, but we've never had to wait more than a few minutes for a table.

One of our favorite breakfast spots in Western New York. Why? Because the coffee is included in the breakfast. You need to remember that when you look at the prices. t first they look like every other diner. Then you realize that they are about $2 less than most anywhere else. We have never been there for anything but breakfast,... More

The first time I tried it I was hooked it has kept me coming back weekly for the past 11 years I've lived in Buffalo. The Staff of wayside are... More

We like everything about this restaurant. It's a nice homestyle family restaurant. When we were in the parking lot I asked a customer leaving if the food was good and he said "the best in the city."
