Buffalo Restaurants

Food lovers rejoice, because while we are justifiably proud of our chicken wings, there is so much more to the Buffalo culinary scene than hot sauce and blue cheese dressing. (Though the wings at the Anchor Bar should be on anyone’s list of essential Buffalo dining experiences.)

We love to eat around here, which shows in our wide range of restaurants, and sometimes in our waistlines. If you want fine dining we have a diverse and sophisticated culinary scene that will satisfy the most discriminating palate. Some of the region's more renowned restaurants include Oliver's, Hutch's, Lombardo's and the 31 Club. The budget minded will enjoy our wide array of ethnic restaurants, satisfying a craving for Tandoori Chicken at Taste of India, sushi at Sea Bar, or hummus at Amy's Place.

Find these regional dishes of note all around town: beef-on-weck at Charlie the Butcher's or Schwabl's and a foot-long hot dog charbroiled to perfection at Ted's.
