Buffalonians have it easy. Some of America’s greatest game day foods, our legendary pizza and chicken wings, are just a phone call away and a short drive for pickup or a nominal delivery fee.
In the eight years I lived away from home, I would have done anything on a Bills game day to sink my teeth into a hot slice of the Bob & John’s La Hacienda pepperoni pizza I had every Friday night growing up! Thankfully, a growing number of the city’s pizza and wing joints are now taking orders from far and wide and shipping Buffalo’s famous exports across the country. Here are five to try as the Bills make their first playoff run in 18 years; check each website for delivery deadlines to make sure your favorite food arrives in time for the game!
Bocce Club Pizza – This pizzeria has become a Buffalo favorite over the last 70+ years and delivers 17 varieties of pizza across the country as well as buckets of wings.
Duff’s – The wings USATODAY.com named one of America’s best regional foods in 2015 would be a huge hit at your Bills game party. Overnight Shipping is included in the cost for the wings (mild, medium, hot or char-B-Q) which can be delivered in the lower 48 and as far away as Alaska. (Celery, carrots and bleu cheese included!)

Bar Bill Tavern – The East Aurora joint known for hand painting their massive wing delivers their famous flats and drums solo or paired with another Buffalo favorite, beef on weck.
