Outstanding Mac and cheese. I had lobster Mac. There are several other choices. Wings are good with a variety of sauces. Caution a couple daisies are smokin' hot. Wife had large tasty Greek salad. Great bar seen. Worth seeking out.

This pub is always busy and buzzing. It's not surprising as the beer is good and varied and the food is plentiful and tasty. And it is reasonably priced. Clam chowder and the house burger with a few pints of local beer did the trick. Thanks Buff's!

Few places get it right when It comes to wings. Buffs definitely has the right formula by making the wings very crispy before adding the sauce. Had the standard buffalo hot wings and also the maple hot which was very unique -- the perfect blend of sweet and hot. We also had the onion soup which was fantastic. If you... More

Buff's Pub is a small bar/restaurant just off the MA Pike in Newton. It has won awards for its wings so I had to try them. Warning. Cash only. We sat ourselves in the only remaining booth. Service was good with the waitress coming over within a few minutes. We tried the jalapeño poppers. They are average, nothing special. We... More

Was expecting something better. The buffalo wings had very little flavour and were quite dry. I'm thinking they sat under a heat lamp. The potato skins were really good, but a really skimpy tub of sour cream took from the dish. The burrito bowl had nice flavor, but lacked pizzazz. The service was average. It was a busy night, but...

Buff's Buffalo Wings are the best in the greater Boston area and likely the state. They are not greasy. They are never over or under cooked. The buffalo sauce is spicy but not overpowering. The sauce has a great taste that survives the heat. Buff's Pub only accepts cash which should be changed because at times it is not convenient.

We stopped over for lunch and had some outstanding wings. It is a small, simple place, no frills, just great wings. Be careful with the spice level! Mostly a bar setting, not really a family place but it would be okay.

It was a Friday night after a long week, and our Irish exchange student from a few years ago was visiting; when the thought of making dinner was not very appealing! We decided to head down to our local neighborhood pub, Buff's Pub! The atmosphere was lively, sort of a had a Cheers like feel to it, where everyone knows... More

This is one of our regular haunts. In fact, I've been coming here since my college days, and we won't talk about how many years ago THAT was! We always order wings, and are never disappointed. There are lots of varieties to choose from - ranging from traditional buffalo (in varying degrees of "hotness") to fun flavors like maple hot... More
