By Emeri Krawczyk » Wednesday, September 21, 2016

The Cheap Eats world works in mysterious ways. While researching the local clam scene, a fellow clam-eater pointed us in the direction of the Audubon North Restaurant noting, “the casinos are the best.” We had never hear of this joint, so we investigated. Pulling in, we wondered if we should go in. It looked a... Read More

The small gray building on the corner of Tremaine Avenue in Kenmore would be easy to miss as you zip along Military Road. Its nondescript exterior belies the fabulous fare found inside. But inside the Kenmore Village Restaurant are the unmistakable smells of home cooking. From the four-stool counter to the booths that line... Read More

From the Workers Who Sometime Lunch files, we visited the newest location of the eCafé at 249 Main on a mundane Wednesday. Having never visited the original (487 Main St.) we were curious if we could add the walkable location to our routine. The space is lovely with a high tin ceiling and brightly painted walls. A key...

For this scorching hot summer, “Gather ye hotdogs while ye may” is our motto. (You’ll thank us right about mid-January for impressing this mantra upon you.)We tried to figure out why a joint on the water (the Niagara River to be precise) is called Lumberjack’s. Then we went inside and discovered the lumberjack is... Read More

Summer provides a free license to eat nothing of nutritional value every once in a while and feel OK about it. The menu at Super Freeze Drive-In pretty much fits the bill. And that’s not a bad thing.In short, this joint is a kid’s food dream. We loved it, too. It would make a fun stop on the way to or from the Angola... Read More

LEWISTON – Stepping into the venerable Village Bake Shoppe in the historic Village of Lewiston is like leaning into a hug from your Grandma. Comfort surrounds you in the scents of baked goods created from scratch, which tickle recessed memories of childhood. Displays of its famous Mile High Apple Pie greet you right... Read More

LOCKPORT – Widewaters is back, and Lockport is a better place because of it. The unpretentious eatery at 767 Market St. reopened this spring after being closed for three years. The small building was flooded as a result of a sewer backup caused by a mega-downpour on June 28, 2013. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and Sen.... Read More

For years, we passed the iconic Curt’s Stop-In along Route 5 on our commute to Buffalo. Then, a few years back, Curt’s – which flourished during the Bethlehem Steel era – was replaced by the Dog Shack. Strangely enough, three hot dog joints – the Dog Shack, Tony’s Bayview Drive-In and Red Top Hot Dogs –... Read More

We are West Seneca/Sloanites, so forgive us if we didn’t find Pautler's Drive-In, which has been around since 1958, until recently. We fell in love before getting out of the car. The retro look, the neon and the pink parking lot lines are darling. Pautler's does double duty as a hot dog joint and ice cream place... Read More
