This is where the chicken wing originated. Casual restaurant/bar with Buffalo's most known foods. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area!

Decided to eat here on our way to Niagara Falls because it was the birthplace of the buffalo wing. Loved the entryway- walls covered with license plates and sport motorcycles are on display (which my sons loved!). Seated right away with immediate service from our waitress. A lot of different fried appetizers- we chose the fried cauliflower and potato wedges, both of which were very tasty (cauliflower definitely better though). Wing choices were simple based on degree of "hotness". We chose mild for the kids and medium for us. I don't like a lot of spice so the medium were plenty hot for me. Good flavor, quite crispy on the outside which I loved. Service couldn't have been better. A thoroughly enjoyable meal, but don't expect to find "healthy" food choices! I would definitely eat here again!

A regular stop when we visit Buffalo. It's a bar/restaurant that has its regulars but that still makes you feel welcome when you are there for the first time. More than just chicken wings on the menu too - and whatever I've tried has been good and at a reasonable price. Would be nice if they had more than Labatts on tap though.
