Heading to Buffalo this weekend
I want some good local Buffalo food. Suggestions?
If you can get to East Aurora (about 15 minutes east of Ralph Wilson Stadium) go to Barbills for wings and Beef on Weck. Local Hounds consider them the best.
Ted's Hot Dogs (there are locations throught the area)
Andersons Custard (again, mutiple locations)
Someone may have a good suggestion as to where to find it, but sponge candy is also a local treat!
Oh, and also maybe someone can direct Gary to a good fish fry...I have been here for almost 5 years and have yet to go to one!
Antoinette's for sponge candy, and incredible sundaes. Or Mike's on Clinton for sponge (though my parents think it's not what it used to be). Orange chocolate is also a local specialty.
Original Pancake House is good, but it's a chain. For breakfast, I'd go to one of the good Greek diners, like Kosta's, Pano's or Towne.
I second the Bill Rapaport restaurant guide for Buffalo. The design is pure 1996, but he maintains it very well. Every city should have a guide that good.
Apropos of the Original Pancake House-It may be a chain.
So what? It's a damn good restaurant. It's not a weak link.
