Not to take anything away from all of the other restaurants in Buffalo that serve really good wings but trust me when I tell you the best ones are here. Make sure you say hello to Amanda behind the bar as she brings her own custom and unique charm to the establishment. Once you walk up the two or three... More

Historic building with lots of charm. The menu is expansive with so many items to choose from along with a full bar and beer selection. Personally we enjoy the wings. Plenty of seating with great service. One of our favorite spots when in the Buffalo area. Enjoy

Our family went to Gabriel's Gate for dinner. The service was great and the food was good. Portions were a healthy size. The history of the building was interesting. We would definitely go back again

Great spinach bread. I love the cool vibe with all the natural wood. The service was pretty good. It could be a little cleaner though, it kind of smelled like they were using a dirty mop or something...

We have always had wings here. The wings are better than average and large but certainly are not close to the best wing. We had sandwich's that were big but poor in flavor . Club sandwich was dry and not toasted. One burger under cooked and another over cooked.

The Anchor Bar is delicious, but it's not the only place in Buffalo to enjoy great wings. In fact, most of the menu at Gabriel's Great was very tasty. We started with a couple of types of wings and a side of crispy fries. Then we tried the French onion soup--some of the best I've had. The real MVP of... More

This historic building in Allentown is our to go spot when entertaining out of town guests who we wish to feed Buffalo chicken wings. Consitently excellent. Service has always been good and while the large menu featuring lots of bar food appetizers, salads, dinners and sandwiches, we almost always get their big juicy wings. Far superior to the iconic Anchor... More

Multiple locals said if we wanted great wings in a local (non-tourist) environment go to Gabriel's Gate in the dynamic Allentown neighborhood. I've had lots of good wings over the years but these were a step up. Meaty wings with a balanced sauce and traditional blue cheese dressing, celery and carrot stick were perfect. I ordered my wings extra crispy... More

We found Gabriel's Gate by Googling "best buffalo wings." The search result did not disappoint! The place is small, but packed with loads of character and charm. There is additional patio seating out back. No children's menu here but there are appetizers that will suffice, such as chicken strips. The staff were very friendly. When ordering wings, don't mess around... More

I don't like Buffalo wings -- or rather, I didn't until I had a single order of mild wings here. They were extraordinary: served hot, crisp and not in the least too vinegary. Good service, great wings, odd but interesting decor. What more could you possibly want?
