“Great Wings!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

stopped by this famous wing place after crossing the border, great atmosphere, lots of history, great for motorcycle buffs-their hanging on the walls literally. Cozy bar lots of food, great menu. Friendly service a locals hangout for sure. Now almost $13 for a lb of wings was a bit much but they were good. lots of parking. Italian style menu available too.

“Original”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Of course a trip to Buffalo requires a trip to the home of the original Buffalo wings. I was the only one in my group who wasn't a big wing eater. I did try some, and they were good. The wing-eating members of my group loved them. I had their new Buffalo burger, which was excellent! Atmosphere is crowded, but friendly. Servers are fast & polite. A customer at the next table spilled his beer, then blamed it on the waitress. She was the epitome of an accommodating server, apologizing, cleaning up the mess, and providing free food. Grace under pressure makes for an enjoyable evening for the customers.

“Order the wings - not a hamburger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Because they are the "original" wing place, we stopped in here to compare them to Duff's while visiting Buffalo. We thought they were very good. What I was even more impressed with was how good their fries and onion wings were. Fresh and crispy. One order of wings was enough for the 4 of us. However, do not order the burger. It was the worst one I have ever eaten. I didn't lower their rating because people are going here for the wings, which are worth going for. The interior is very cool as well. Prices were comparable to other wing places.

“Very good "wing" place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

You will love the entrance - if you like collecting stuff, cars, license plates, memorabilia etc. The food is really good, servings are Huge!! We went on a Thursday night and Mr. "Frank Sinatra" was singing live, what a voice. Enjoyed the place, the food, the service and the live entertainment. Price is reasonable. No wonder this place is a "must" to visit, it will leave you with a nice experience. I recommend this place - ask when Frank will be singing.

“The original is the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

I had to go here to sample the original Buffalo wings. Surprise it is by far the best I have ever had and the repeat it in the tree times I have been back. The other food that I've had a chance to sample has just been as incredible. If I remotely go though the area I will ALWAYS be back.
