I am planning on eating only wings for a week in Buffalo.
I am staying downtown, should I rent a car?
Where are the must not miss wing joints in the city?
I'll make my way through them.
You have to go to the Anchor Bar as that's where they supposedly originated. Gabriel's Gate has huge buffalo wings.
Duff''s is a popular place and I haven't been, but I keep hearing that the wings at BarBill's are great.
Lots of places have good wings in Buffalo, but everybody suggests the same few places. I choose the bar based on beer selection and atmosphere, and then worry about the wings. Anchor Bar falls seriously short by this criteria.
Thanks again for the replies, wow, real Buffalo wings are something incredible. Really worth the hype. I can never eat a wing anywhere else again.
My favorites (a tie) were Gabriel's Gate and BarBill's, both a bit different, GG were more along the "traditional" saucy style and BB was dry but both were incredibly fantastic. I'm thinking of taking a vacation back to Buffalo!
Anchor Bar was still really really good, a bit smaller and drier, and the place was a bit "TGI Fridays esque" but overall I saw through the hype and had great wings.
Labatt's Blue on tap is something special as well.
I ate at Duff's and was not impressed at all. Wings were overfried and dry, the hot sauce was straight out of the bottle and even their hottest sauce was underwhelming.
