Nagoya Chow: Yamachan's Chicken Wings + Miso Dishes

Nagoya is Japan's fourth-largest city, and though one mightn't guess as much from its staid streets, it's obsessed with miso. Known best for its role in the common Japanese soup, miso paste - actually, pastes - are made from fermented...

Osaka Chow: Japanese Chicken Wings + More at Tori No Mai

Picture this: Buffalo, New York as the literal world capital of chicken wings. Easy to imagine, right? It would be a huge draw for tourists, and a natural fit given our history. But wouldn't it be boring if every restaurant...

Dave & Busters + Updates: Carmine's, SoupHerb, Quaker Steak

We're going to make our recent drought of articles up to you with something really special in November - we promise. But for now, another very busy past week has led us to assemble another wrap-up article, including one brief...

Depew's Duff's Brings Buffalo's Best Wings To A Nicer Venue

The highest praise we could offer to a new location of Duff's - the best overall place to get chicken wings in Buffalo - would be to say that the food and service is as great as the original location's,...

O.C. Chow: The Changing Face of Chicken, Korean + American

Buffalonians take for granted their status as originators and purveyors of a globally-recognized chicken dish - the "Buffalo Wing," as it's now commonly called - and though there are surely thousands of other ways to eat chicken in Western New...

Update: Duff's Depew + Anchor Bar's Buffalo Airport Locations

As this year's National Buffalo Wing Festival has successfully concluded - more successfully than ever before, with over 92,000 attendees versus the prior year's 78,000 - it's time for a brief update on two franchised locations of Western New York's...

National Buffalo Wing Festival 2009: An Opinionated Roundup

Last year, we took a fairly exhaustive, four-part look at the National Buffalo Wing Festival (1, 2, 3, 4), which we noted hadn't blown us away on wing quality, but certainly impressed us in scope, as well as in branding...

National Buffalo Wing Festival: Photos, And What to Expect

Want to know what the National Buffalo Wing Festival looks like? Held at Coca-Cola Park in Buffalo, NY over the two-day leadup to Labor Day, this event hosted over 30 different vendors of chicken wings and wing-related foods. We've posted...

How Anthony Bourdain Blew It On Buffalo & The Rust Belt

Up until recently, we were fans of Anthony Bourdain - we've read his books, watched his TV show No Reservations, and enjoyed his "we'll do things differently" attitude. He's the sort of guy who likes to cover a city like...

News: Duff's in Depew, Eastern Pearl & Dunkin' Bankruptcy

When local food news is of interest to our editors, we'll bring it to you here. In this week's update: first word on a brand new location of Duff's, an update on The Eastern Pearl, "WNY's newest fine dining Chinese...

Eat & Fly: Dining at Buffalo Niagara International Airport

Planning a visit to Western New York, or a trip outside the area? You might want to know what you can eat at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, and we're here to help. Once very sparsely populated with dining establishments,...

In Newstead, Braun's Remixes Buffalo's Wings Using Hawg

Located in the Town of Newstead, NY - seven or so miles past Clarence Center - Braun's Family Restaurant may not be the most convenient restaurant to visit for a Western New York specialty - it's also not the fanciest,...

Tasty, Not Thrilling Take-Out at Transit's Pesci's & Mr. Pita

In the months that have passed since WingFest '08, we've been thinking about Hawg Wings - the pork version of chicken wings, apparently invented at Braun's but spreading like wildfire to other restaurants inside and outside of Buffalo. Last week,...

If Crispy's Your Thing, Bar Bill's Spicy Wings Will Satisfy

As we stuff ourselves into stools and countertop seating next to the kitchen at East Aurora's Bar Bill, a tavern that touts itself as a wings-and-weck alternative to Amherst's long-time favorite Duff's, it's obvious that we're in a local hangout:...

Anchor Bar: A Safe And Famous But Pricey Spot For Wings

One thing you'll note about virtually every Buffalo Chow review is our strong focus on food relative to other aspects of the dining experience: we're glad to eat in any sort of venue, as long as the meals are great....

Just a Brief Interruption: Anthony Bourdain's in Buffalo

As hinted at in the last season of the Travel Channel's No Reservations and confirmed in a subsequent blog posting by the show's host and star, semi-reluctant celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain is finally visiting Buffalo. Bourdain signaled that he'd be...

A Legend, Tarnished? The Slow, So-So Orchard Park Duff's

Let's get one thing straight up front: despite its cramped quarters and utter lack of ambience, Duff's Famous Wings in Amherst is the area's very best chicken wing restaurant. But independently-operated franchise locations of beloved hometown restaurants rarely exceed the...

Palladino's, a Hidden Pizza, Wing, and Garlic Bread Master

The hottest chicken wings we'd ever eaten, years ago, now stand as one of our few indelible memories of growing up in Western New York. We can still picture them: they were a bright, nearly glowing orange. Impossible to eat...

A Tale of Two Wegmans, Part II: Mostly Awful Restaurants

As much we love Wegmans as a supermarket - and we do - we really don't like it as a place to eat or take out meals. Walk into certain locations and you'll initially be amazed to find several sushi...

Finally, Quaker Steak & Lube Opens in Its Ancestral Home

Outsiders aren't supposed to rival, or even approach local Buffalo favorites when it comes to making authentic chicken wings. Hundreds of places have tried, and there are surely days when we think we've tried too many sad wannabes to stomach...

WingFest '08: Traditional Wings & Parting Thoughts

Taste may be purely personal, but having eaten lots of chicken wings all across the globe, it's our firm conviction that Buffalo's traditional wing sauce - particularly as it's served at certain restaurants - is the best around. The 2008...

WingFest '08: Non-Traditional Wings, BBQ + Loganberry

Though the event is formally titled the "National Buffalo Wing Festival," and "Buffalo Wing" has a very specific meaning - red hot sauce - WingFest '08 saw at least as many non-traditional chicken wing flavors on offer as it did...

WingFest '08: Wing-Inspired Meals & More

Rather than looking at wings themselves, the second part of our four-piece series on the 2008 Buffalo WIng Festival focuses on some surprising wing-inspired dishes, things that appeared to be wings but weren't, and items that were nice complements to...

WingFest '08: Buffalo Chow's Take on the Event

We don't know Drew Cerza personally, but we know what the man who calls himself the Wing King has accomplished. And as we left the 2008 National Buffalo Wing Festival - aka WingFest '08 - we almost wish we'd interrupted...

Beer, Beef, and Brennan's Wings Make a Big Menu Better

Bold and imperfect as the comparison may be, we'll draw the following analogy: Brennan's Bowery Bar is to Clarence what Duffs is to Amherst. A respite. A local favorite. One part flawed on experience, but four parts great on food....

Bocce: A Local Legend Ships Pizzas of International Caliber

For decades, when we discussed Buffalo's best pizzas, there was only a single place that we would consider worthy of recommendation: "Bocce on Bailey," more specifically North Bailey Avenue in Amherst. The Bocce name is huge on both the signs...

Buffalo Wild Wings: Ex-Pats Import Their Chicken Wing Chain

We knew it back in Ohio as BW3, the acronym for what was once Buffalo Wild Wings and Weck, a restaurant started in 1982 by Western New York expatriates in an attempt to bring their favorite local foods to their...

At Duff's, Buffalo's Best Chicken Wings May Eat You

You wouldn't guess from the exterior of this Sheridan Drive, Amherst restaurant that it is and has for years been Buffalo's very best place to get authentic chicken wings. Walking inside won't change that impression: Duff's looks like a greasy...

Grover's: Burgers Too Big to Eat in Twos

Many of the restaurants in Clarence and East Amherst have the look and feel of old school taverns - places that were originally designed to serve drinks, but over the course of years have developed reputations for one or two...

Chicken Wings, or, Why People Know About Buffalo

They are Buffalo's single best-known culinary export. They are almost invariably served less impressively outside of Western New York. And they are, for most former residents, one of several "must-eats" on any return trip home. Chicken Wings, literally the wings...
