I stopped by after work while in town. The waitress was very friendly and recommended the wings or burgers. I opted for the wings with "hot honey" sauce and 1/2 order of fries/onion ring order which was the perfect combination! The food was great. The onion rings were really, really good. The servings were large and the prices were cheap.... More

Came for the wings with my lady. Stayed for the good times. Disclaimer: CASH ONLY no plastic so keep it at home in the safe. Food is great. Beer is great. These are just general statements. But the food at Buffs is great and they have beer so that is great too. Come on down!

I didn't know I could be full by buffalo wings. Yes, buffalo wings and hot wings. It's a sports bar but primarily known for its wings. And they are good and you could have them for dinner if you're a wings fan.

They serve awesome food and drinks. Our favorites are chicken wings and cheese ravioli. We love this place.

The food at Buff's is quite good, especially for a small bar, and the prices are right. I would definitely try the wings, as each of the sauces I tried were very good. The beer selection was okay. There was certainly a small variety, particularly IPAs, but one of the beers I had seemed to be a bit old and... More

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...
