Best restaurant in Buffalo.

What do you think are the best restaurants in Buffalo?

They don't have to be the obvious ones like Left Bank but can also some little hole in the wall restaurant no one's ever heard about.
My favorites are:
Uncle John's (Amherst) for authentic Chinese

Zettis (Transit) for awesome pizzas and decent pastas

Johnny C's (Amherst) for great sandwiches

Chipotles! I know many people pooh-pooh because it's a chain restaurant, but man are those burritos good.

Chesters Cajun Grill

  1. Olivers - #1 best, for special occasion (always for a birthday or anniversary, it seems)

    Kuni's - sushi or for good city vibe. Always busy, great Elmwood feel.

    Falafel Bar - great falafel for takeout or eat in (Allen St closed, but Sheridan Dr open)

    Marco's (Hertel Ave) for best sandwiches

    I could go on and on. As you say, there are tons of great places - too many in fact - so best to post a specific topic for Buffalo.

      Ohh Olivers..that is practically an institution. I really want to go and splurge on a meal there once. Everything on their menu looks fabulous. What would you recommend?

      Shango's. the fusion Cajun place near UB South and

      99Pho for almost authentic Vietnamese
