We love to eat around here, which shows in our wide range of restaurants. 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.… more
Buffalo is getting spicy Labor Day weekend with the National Buffalo Wing Festival. This two day ode to chicken wings features amateur sauce contests, a wing eating competition and even a Miss Buffalo Wing Pageant. Make sure you grab plenty of napkins; it’s going to be saucy.
Q&A with the Wing King In Buffalo, wings are practically royalty. So, it makes sense that the presider of the National Buffalo Wing Festival be called a king. The Wing King, Drew Cerza, answers some questions about the country’s favorite bar food.
How Hot Are You? Buffalo likes to walk on the spicy side, but how much heat can you handle? Choose your favorite Yancey’s Fancy House of Heat cheese and enter our contest to win an overnight stay and admission to the National Buffalo Wing Festival!
