We had heard that Duff's is a culinary landmark in Buffalo: an archetype of the Buffalo chicken wing cuisine. After having visited the Amherst location and sampling the wings and other fare, we've now experienced how good simple chicken wings can be. There is a huge difference in taste, texture and heat between true Buffalo wings at Duff's and the... More

Duffs has the best hot wings around! a little pricey but Buffalo is know for their wings. Gets extremely crowded on weekends but it's worth the wait.

The wings were excellent. Also they had the fries with gravy which were good also. Service was fast and great. When I come back this will be one place I will go back to.

Went here on Saturday night for takeout. The place was packed and after eating the wings I can see why it was so popular. Wings were delicious!

The beef on wick is good. Wings are good, sauces are a bit watery. Blue cheese is excellent. Was $46.00 for 4 people for lunch. Pleasant experience

I grew up in this city and have lived all around the US. If you are in the Buffalo area, and you want to try the real deal. This is it. If you like spicy, stick with medium. Hot is or dumb people and foreigners that know no better. Nothing much to look at, not rocket science, but there is... More

Average ribs with less than average service. The bartender had no personality and did not know what a local beer is.

After a horrible evening stuck in the car getting lost after an amazing day at Darien Lake we attempted to get into our hotel.. Well that hotel turned into a horrible experience. We ended up cancelling our reservation and we found another hotel. We were starving..... The manager here recommend Duffs.... We took his word on it, and I'm glad... More

There is usually a wait to get in but it is worth it. It's definitely the best Duff's in the area. The wings are big, crispy and spicy. The grilled cheese is great. Definitely go to this location rather than the one in Niagara Falls.

The wings at Duff's were not only great, but they were large! Be sure to heed the signage all over the restaurant as the sauce is very hot!
