This is a must-visit on your trip to Buffalo to experience the birthplace of buffalo wings. Tip: the mild means no spice or heat at all, so if you like just a little spice, medium is the way to go.

We have visited here all three times we have gone to the casino in Niagara Falls NY. The first time the food was great. The seating was not so much. Felt like a sardine. Waitress was a bit frazzled. All in all a good experience....More

Had the wings. Good but way overpriced. Had a Reuben. Maybe had 2 skinny slices of corned beef. No cheese. Too much thousand island. Potato salad was pedestrian. Go once to say you went to the place that started chicken wings. And never go back.

A friend told us about this place, so we had to stop in while we were in Buffalo. People start lining up to get in before this place even opens. We really loved their wings!

This place has been around for along time. Wings are great, beers cold and good deals if you go on the right day. Actually had a Greek style salad that was good as well. Wing sauces are very buttery which I like but order accordingly....More

The legend is that Teressa Bellissimo created the first “Buffalo” chicken wings in 1964, when her bartender son asked her to cook something for his friends. 50+ years later the restaurant is still known as one of the best purveyors of wings in the area...More

you would probably not be able to park in adjacent lot, but if you're willing to walk a block or so, there are other parking opportunities.
