Buffalo Wings

Are these delicious snacks so called because they originated from Buffalo,NY?????

  1. That's correct. One little tavern there started them a number of years ago.

    1. yes

      not from the actual buffalo. although when I was a kid I did think they came from the actual buffalo, I kid you not. I was a regular jessica simpson except for the age difference :/

      1. The Buffalo Style Chicken Wing was invented by Teressa Bellissimo in Buffalo, NY at a place called The Anchor Bar.
        I still say they're the best anywhere.


        1. thanks for the posts-the thread is very interesting

            The Anchor Bar now sells its products in grocery stores. I found them in the freezer section at Walmart. I have not tasted them and I am certain that it is just not the same, but thought you may be interested.

          2. Anchor Bar also sells the sauce in select stores in the NJ/NY area, perhaps in many more states. I've bought them at Bottle King, Wegman's & Chef Central. The best wing sauce, in my humble opinion. I'm actually doing wings tonight for dinner with, you guessed it, Anchor Bar Sauce.
