Chester's Cajun Grill in Buffalo.

I am just wondering if anyone has tried this place? I looked at the menu and the food sounds awesome. I am considering trying it since I am visiting Buffalo next week. I would appreciate any responses.

  1. I've been to Chester's once, a year ago, so it's not good to judge on only that one experience. But, I remember it well, and have a favorable impression. I would go back and try it again.

    I ordered the muffoletta sandwich, wife ordered the blackened catfish po-boy, someone with our party ordered fried oyster po-boy and we had a chance to try that too. All favorable, perhaps not mind-blowing-ly great. I remember being disappointed that they didn't have sweet potato fries that evening.

    Chester's is a very casual place with an attached bar serving mostly cheap beer. Busy with locals having fun at the bar and quite loud. 'Dis ain't no classy joint. In a strip plaza on Transit Rd in East Amherst in the burbs. Most entrees around $15
    Contrast to Shango, the other cajun place I recommended in the other thread, which is more upscale, inventive menu, with fine wines, and craft beer, and attentive wait staff.

    I like cajun and had forgotten about Chester's. Thanks for reminding me. Time to try it again.

      Was the fried oyster po-boy any good? I will likely order that when I am there.

    2. Just wondering if you ever got the chance to stop in to Chester's on your visit to Buffalo. If you did, I hope everything was to your satisfaction. Let me know how everything was. If you didn't get a chance to stop in, hopefully we will see you at a later date ;)

        I was disappointed that I didn't get to visit your restaurant. Your menu looks amazing and your restaurant has a good reputation. I will make it a point to try it the next time I am visiting Buffalo,
