Buffalo (and surrounding environs) is home to some fantastic restaurants. Jane and I have had opportunity to visit quite a few & though we would share some of our favorites. We'll be updating this regularly, so check back from time to time. The list is alphabetical, with special sections for diners, and fish fry joints (a local phenomenon). Please note that this is a pretty eclectic mix of places (most are what we call "nice casual"); we've skipped most all chains, and many boring (but "safe") places. Rating system is on a 5 point scale, but we haven't included any places we don't like (why waste your time?). We have pretty much zero connection with any of these places (other than enjoying them). Please note that price ranges DO NOT include bar tabs.
If you know of a great place that isn't on the list, it probably means we haven't been there! Drop us a line & tell us about it. email@example.com

1047 Main St, Buffalo 716-886-8920 Last Visited /10 Well how could you have a Buffalo restaurant list without mentioning the birthplace of "Buffalo wings". All though lots of folks still argue about who serves the best wings in town (Duff;s being the other local big name in wings), this is where we take friends that want to try out authentic wings. Other food includes decently prepared Italian fare. Jazz & other live entertainment many nights (occasionally a cover charge). Price Range: Figure on $15 per person HHH

The"Grill" part of the name sums up this restaurant located directly across Main St. from Shea's. The food is of good quality- they actually know how to cook a burger to order! If there is a fault, it is that this plays lives and dies with Shea's - including adjusting their hours to the Shea's schedule. You may want to call ahead to see if they're open - or booked solid - before venturing down.

4548 Main St, Snyder, NY 14226 716-635-1117 Last Visited 3/10 Billing itself as "soup and wine bar", this place was a "must checkout" place when we heard about it. While the original location at 756 Elmwood is no longer open, we've only visited the Main St location. While the wines are good, the selection is kind of limited for a place billing itself as a wine bar. While the soups are very good, the menu is by no means limited to soup. Everything that we tried was well prepared & service was good. If I had a complaint, it would be that some things (salsa for example) that I expected to have some heat were a bit tame. Price Range: Wide $18-$25 per entree, but soups, salads and small plates much less HHH
Buffalo Chop House

|Arguably Buffalo's most expensive restaurant, The Buffalo Chop House is located in a fine old building near both the Theater district and the Chippewa bar scene. Style after most chop-houses, meat is featured, Food & service are both excellent, but my general philosophy toward food is that more expensive is not always better. Still, if someone else is picking up the tab, it's worth the experience ;-)|

716 Elmwood Ave, Buffalo, NY 14222 716-883-8066 Last Visited 8/12 Billing itself as "Ristorante & Martini bar", this is a very affordable place on the Elmwood strip. We were pleasantly suprised by the quality of the food and the service (a few of the tables were more than a little wobbly, but that's another story). Jane got the eggplant parmesean & it was great, as was the calmari. Pork I had was fair. Price Range: Wide $18-$25 per entree HHH

The name fits the location - the heart of Lackawanna, former home of Buffalo's most famous closed steel plant (Bethlehem Steel). The food though, is great. The dominant theme to the menu is Caribbean. The restaurant itself is located a few minutes from the South Park Botanical Garden & the Basilica. Very casual feel, very friendly staff.

I'm told that this is a joint venture between the folks that run Sienna and Olivers, so expectations have been high... maybe too high for the restaurant. They have taken the shell of a family style restaurant and turned it into a very reasonable space with an informal feel. menu features many wood oven pizzas as well as more typical fare. Some California friends have called it "very California". Food was very good on my visit. Limited wine selection

Buffalo finally gets authentic barbecue! Reasonably priced, with impeccable service. Both entrees and sandwich platters are available (choice of sides) with chicken, beef and pork all from the smoker. For BBQ lovers, the only drawback to Fat Bob's can be the wait. They don't take reservations, and on the Saturday night we went the wait was 30 minutes when we got there at 6. When we were leaving (about 7:30) the wait was out to 50 minutes!

Very nice change of pace from the over-touristed places that Niagara on the Lake is full of. The restaurant is a modest part of the winery - sort of hidden in the back & not very obvious. Rack of lamb is their signature dish & is great... too bad the rest of the food is superb. Our only disappointment was the odd pairing of the hummus dip with their strongly flavored breads...

Other than the great view of Lake Erie, Hoak's looks like a set from a Tom Dudzik play (a old-time neighborhood tavern for those who have no idea who Tom Dudzik is). This is a quintessential WNY "fish fry joint" with claim to having one of the best Friday fish frys in WNY. Consider getting an outside table if weather permits. Have only had the seafood here & don't anyone who has tried non-seafood items from the menu. No reservations.

Kentucky Greg's Hickory Pit

OK, let's get one thing out of the way. Kentucky Greg's is not a fancy place. Don't know what the building was in its previous incarnation, but it wasn't fancy either. Think plastic top tables. Get over the fact that the sides for the BBQ platters are sometimes served in styrofoam cups. On the Friday we went, blues were playing on the sound system, but really the food is why you go here. The smoked pork shoulder alone is worth the trip. Corn bread is good. They also do catering & we've used then for some events at our house (we picked up the food).

Korea House (Woo Chon)

All of our experience with Korean food comes in WNY, including a church fundraiser. Having said that, the food at this restaurant is terrific. They have a few grill equipped tables that are fun if you enjoy doing your own grilling. Hint: the lettuce leaves get used like you would use a tortilla. Haven't tried the "regular tables" yet, but everything we saw looked good.
Price range: Meals from about $14
1264 Hertel Ave.
Last Visited: 6/99
Wasn't quite sure where to put this one. Somewhat nicer than a "fish fry joint", somewhat less than a fine dining experience. This place seems to have started out life as a fish shop (which it still is). Indoor and outdoor dining has been added. The lest grilled squid that we've had in the area. Fish was fresh & decently prepared. We weren't quite as excited as Janice Okun about this place, but it is a pretty good value.

Reminiscent of Hutch's - almost as noisey, these days just as crowded, food is almost as good. (Parking is much better though) Very generous portions of well prepared, food.

3268 Main St, Buffalo, NY 716-833-6988 Last Visited 3/05 Buffalo's newest Chinese restaurant. Very small (5 or 6tables) but a very well done menu selection. We've only been here a couple of time, but were very impressed by the food- this may (finally) be an answer to Ming Teh on the US side of the border. One note - they take their spices seriously here. Medium would be consider "hot" at most Asian restaurants catering to westernized tastes. Service is leisurely. Price Range: About $7 for lunch, $20/person dinner HHH

Well deserved reputation as the best Chinese cuisine in the WNY (ignore the little fact that it's in Canada) is well deserved - some of best we've had outside of a Chinatown. Fresh, new menus items tried out along with perfectly prepared regular menu items. The only Chinese restaurant we've been to where the wait staff is as likely to include Eastern European immigrants or Canadian-born anglos as Asians! For the past several decades, this place has had a following among Hollywood types... on the odd occasion when a film is being shot in the region they've been known to show up.

Interesting blend of great food and very happening bar scene. Food seems to ascending here (the pool tables have been replaced by expanded seating). Arguably one of the most under-rated restaurants in the area. A regular printed menu features inexpensive choices that are all very good. Extensive list of daily specials that are generally more expensive. Appetizers shine.

Many "stock" burgers to choose from, as well as a build your own ingredient list. Burgers have been correctly prepared & with a good bun (critical to a good burger!). One unique twist: salad bar is a default with orders and fries are extra! Very casual, generally very good service. Price Range: $10-15/person lunch HHH
3396 Bailey, Buffalo, NY 14215 716-836-6058 Last Visited 4/13
Vietnamese food rules in this very informal, clean restaurant. The "99" part is for 1999 - the year the owner opened his first location. This is our favorite place for Vietnamese soups (pho)- come in small, large and extra large. Think large, huge, enormous. Soups are served with a platter of raw bean sprouts, jalapenos, basil to garnish your soup with. Parking is the biggest problem here, but worth the hassle.

Kind of dated, almost tired exterior belies the excellent food and service inside. Generally a contender for Buffalo's best restaurant. The catering side of Olivers did our wedding reception over at the Historical Society, so we have a tradition of celebrating our anniversary every year at Oliver's.

OK, so this is a franchise, but their specialty pancakes are incredible. If you go on a Saturday morning, be prepared for a wait. I'm a sucker for the apple pancake (you have to order one to fully appreciate it!). Jane is partial to the omelets - but all of the breakfasts are fresh & good.

Vegetarian Indian food specializing in Dosas. Everything appears to be very well prepared, with a variety of levels of heat.

We've been to the Hamburg location and were very pleasantly surprised. Although we were part of a good sized group, the food was excellent, as was the service. They also seem to do a fair amount of banquet hall type business, but that hasn't seemed to impact the quality of the food. Have been at their Roseland facility on Rhode Island St.for some parties, but never a sit-down dinner (party food was fine, but unremarkable)

At times, this has been the only French restaurant in Buffalo. While that's no longer the case, it still appears to be the best. Superb food, impeccable service, although more formal (and expensive) than many of the places we go to... still a nice experience. The owner is ever present. Lately she has been experimenting with a few "less French" items on the menu. Outdoor patio is wonderful in season.

One of a growing number of Japanese restaurants in WNY, located in a small plaza development near the Galleria. They have taken space used by a succession of Asian restaurants and made it look quite fresh and new. Menu is almost exclusively sushi/sashimi/rolls, with a few bento-box type items.

I've never tried the rolls, (by all accounts they are very good) but they did look interesting.

Previously this was the consensus choice for the best Thai food in WNY. After closing for an extended period, it re-opened in a nearby location. Part of the original group has split off and opened a restaurant on Hertel. Our first visit at the new location was literally a few days after they opened. The new restaurant is bigger, but still informal. They have significantly improved the entrance, but you still might want to avoid sitting too near front door on a cold Winter night.

Buffalo has a quite a few "diner style" places. I say diner style, because virtually none of these places uses the name "diner" making them difficult to spot!
Here are a few inexpensive & good places that we've enjoyed
Gardenview - Union Rd, West Seneca
Hillview - Transit Rd - sister establishment of the Gardenview (run by a cousin?)
Alton's - Walden Ave, Cheektowaga
Buffalo's Catholics have inspired a tradition enjoyed by (almost) everyone - the Friday night fish fry. Everybody (and I do mean everybody) serves one, but the traditional ones are found at local neighborhood bars and restaurants. "Traditional style" means a batter dipped, deep fried filet (usually beer batter) of a fairly mild fish, a side of fries, coleslaw, macaroni salad & potatoe salad for anywhere from $6 to $9.00... not a bad deal! Lots of places are offering breaded, baked and broiled variants, but the quality varies from place to place.
Buffalo's Broadway Market is an Old World style collection of bakeries, candy shops, meat and produce vendors with it's own web site! Think of it as a food mall, with an emphasis on ethnic Polish foods. While nowhere near it's heyday, it's still worth a visit (it's mobbed around the Easter and Christmas Seasons). Web sit includes directions, and a free gift offer for completing an on-line survey.
