DETAILS

Buffalo is so famous for its spicy chicken wings that its name will forever be linked with this finger-licking-good bar food. If you want to try the wings that started it all, head to Anchor Bar, where local lore claims that original owner Teressa Bellissimo created this snack late one night in 1964 for her son and his hungry friends. Years later, tourists and townies alike flock here to consume the incomparable wings by the plate or bucketful, prompting the prestigious James Beard Foundation to give the bar its America’s Classics Award in 2003. Choose between mild, medium, hot, spicy barbecue or "suicidal" sauce. The otherwise extensive menu consists of bar standards, sandwiches and home-style Italian dishes.

Kids' menu. Full bar. Serving lunch and dinner daily. Late night Fri–Sat. "Clearly, the owners have succeeded in making the Anchor Bar a landmark, and it entirely deserves its clientele."
