OK so maybe it wasn't littered with broken bottles from bar fights, but Randy's definitely has its share of neon beer signs, Bud on tap, and vibrant atmosphere, especially on Wednesday trivia night. For those that don't like the limited tap selection can choose from a variety of bottled beers including local selections, and it is easy to start a... More

We have stopped here before but today was one of the best yet, I had a Gorilla Burger - 8 oz Bacon covered CheeseBurger between 2 Grilled Cheese Sandwiches $8.95. My Wife had the Mushroom CheeseBurger $7.50. If your in the WNY Southern Tier and hungry stop here you will be very satisfied.
