One of the Great Eating Cities

Renowned food critic Michael Stern called Buffalo “one of the great eating cities.” The co-author of Eat Your Way Across the USA even declared that no city – “except maybe New Orleans” – has as many regional specialties as Buffalo. Numerous visits to Buffalo made Stern a Buffalo believer. Now it’s your turn to savor the wings at Bar Bill, tuck into a beef-on-weck sandwich at Schwabl’s, indulge in a charbroiled hot dog at Ted’s, sample the mini-donuts at the Swan Street Diner, relish the corned beef hash at Sophia’s, dig into a fish-fry at Wallenwein’s Hotel and discover “one of the greatest ice cream parlors anywhere” at Antoinette’s Sweets. Visit Buffalo and experience heartland road food at its finest!

[Buffalo and Erie County restaurants have begun a gradual re-opening process and are putting into place precautions in accordance with state and local guidelines for increased safeguards during COVID-19.

Dining offerings vary from restaurant to restaurant. Some establishments have opened their patios following new social distancing protocols for outdoor dining. Others continue to safely serve customers through takeout and delivery. Indoor dining, at reduced capacity, began June 16th. A full listing of Buffalo restaurants offering takeout can be found here.  Here’s a list of all organizations that have signed our Buffalo Cares! Stay Safe pledge. For the most current information on status and hours, please check the restaurant’s official website or social channel. Reservation requirements may vary per establishment.]
