Okay everyone! Ribs it is. Tucked away in a small City of Batavia and not on a main thorough fare is this small restaurant, known to the people of Batavia and surrounding area. Easy to get to off the I-90. Worth the stop. Does not take reservations for 4 or less, but will accept call in hold the table for me after 5pm. They give you a variety to chose from with side dishes, salad is basic, soups are good. Ribs are very tender, fall off the bone and very tasty. Go for the mix of the garlic and sauce on the side. VERY VERY GOOD. When I am in the area, this is a must stop place.

Passing through Buffalo on a Sunday morning and had to have some Buffalo style wings but were too early for lunch at any of the Buffalo restaurants touting their wings. Had to keep going so gave up on the wing thing. Hit Batavia around 11am, found this place on Tripadvisor and took a chance. The restaurant has a dark barroom feel when you walk in but guess what -no cigarette smell! Hit the jackpot with wings and ribs. Best baby back ribs I've ever had (read: most meaty). Wings were everything we thought they should be. Mine were mild, flavorful but but didn't eat through my lips, my son's were hot and just right for his preference. Daughter's medium wings were to her liking. Service was excellent. Didn't see any children there so not sure they would enjoy it. Go early -I can understand why there would be lines to get into this place.

Whenever we are in the mood for ribs there is no question about "where to go." I have never had a disappointing meal at Alex's. The only thing I would prefer is that the tables be further apart.

Living in Batavia we have the choice of many places to eat on any evening. Alex's Place is ALWAYS the choice for a special occasion . The food, atmosphere, & service are amazing. If you only have one place to eat while in town, make sure it's at Alex's Place.
