We love it when we can raise a glass and toast Buffalo’s history – especially when we can literally raise a glass as we stand in a piece of it. Such is the case at The Mahony, a new pub located in the historic Fairmont Creamery building. A quick check will tell you that the Fairmont Creamery was a Nebraska company... Read More

Every Buffalo resident has had a visiting friend or family member ask for council on the region’s popularized wing debate between Anchor Bar and Duff’s. And time and time again, informed locals have inserted overlooked candidates in this debate — like South Buffalo’s Nine-Eleven Tavern. Experts in serving its... Read More

The success of a business is often quoted as being contingent on location. Shenannigan’s Bar and Grill’s location is definitely a head-scratcher, then, considering it is in the middle of car-repair-city on Niagara Falls Boulevard. A well hoisted sign doesn’t seem to attract the attention it should since it’s... Read More

The combination gives... Read More

When you assign a direct name like “Local” to a kitchen and beer bar, you better commit to the moniker’s connotations and be thorough in doing so. Thankfully, West Chippewa’s rustic craft beer and sandwich haven Local Kitchen does just that. Stashed inside the old Noir and boasting walls full of new and old... Read More

Oh, The U, where have ye gone? For years, it was a staple for University at Buffalo graduate students who needed a drink after classes. When news broke that The U would shut its doors, UB students were heartbroken. But maybe it was too early to mourn a place which never seemed to garner as much business as it should... Read More

It’s nice to have bars and restaurants you can smell from blocks away (in a good way). And Fat Bob’s — with its barbecue-filled menu of brisket, pulled pork and buttermilk fried chicken — is certainly one of these Buffalo-based locales. Tucked inside Allentown on Virginia Place, the bar provides roadhouse... Read More

Newfangled cocktails, craft beer and hipster crowds have a place in this world, but today we pay homage to old-school joints that keep the classic traditions going — like The Protocol Restaurant. Opened in 1971 and still owned by the Pelczynski family, The Protocol has 45 years of staying power because of a focus on... Read More

Despite the past few years of dramatic changes in certain sections of Buffalo, it would be wrong to assume that every neighborhood is full of residents eager for wholesale transformations of the street blocks, businesses and barrooms that color their way of life. Count South Buffalo as one city section full of residents... Read More
