Cheap Eats

Sometimes, despite our efforts, Mondays live up to their negative stereotypes. On one recent occasion, after a long day and an equally busy evening, making dinner was a very unappetizing prospect. A far better idea? Ordering from LT’s Olde Tyme Pizza and Subs in West Seneca. LT’s has two locations (the other is on... Read More

We had driven by Jades Restaurant many times with, “We should go there.” We finally picked a cold Tuesday night after being thwarted on a busy Friday when we couldn’t find parking in the tiny lot. The building sits on an angle on a weird bend on Broadway between Dick and Transit roads. Was the road moved or the... Read More

Let’s be honest: Buffalonians love their comfort food. Wings with chunky blue cheese and beer, pizza with pepperoni curled at the edges to form tiny grease cups, french fries with, well, everything. If it’s fried, greasy – or ideally, both – we’re all in. Well fried food fans, step away from the wings and put... Read More

One wonders about the conversation between U.S. customs officers and Canadian restaurateurs Jake Fraser and Konstantine Kentros as they crossed the border to open Allen Street Poutine Company. We like to imagine border patrol granting them immediate access and the keys to the city after tasting this Quebec import of... Read More

Opening a burger joint down the street from Grover’s Bar & Grill is an ambitious undertaking, but the new Bugsy’s Burger Bar held its own on our visit. Styled after a 1950s burger joint, a picture of Bugs Bunny hangs under one of the flatscreen TVs. We were stumped if the other decor referred to real life... Read More

LOCKPORT – Kalamata Family Restaurant is almost an insider spot. If you’re driving on South Transit Road, you might not notice it. The Greek-American eatery is almost invisible from the road, unless you happen to glance over a building that has some road frontage. There is no sign along the road for Kalamata, which,...

Residents and frequent visitors to the Village of Hamburg will note that Butera’s Craft Beer & Craft Pizza has taken over the space formerly occupied by O’Brien’s Farm Fresh Meats & Smokehouse — a gourmet food store-cum-restaurant — and more recently August Bistro. Perhaps the third time is the... Read More

If the idea of putting together the words pizza and buffet sounds like your idea of food heaven, a trip to the Toni Pepperoni buffet in West Seneca should be on your agenda. Located in a strip plaza (conveniently next to a store selling exercise equipment if you feel the need after filling up), this Toni Pepperoni is... Read More

Bailey Seafood is not for the indecisive. With a menu featuring 25 appetizers and sides, 14 types of fried fish, nine baked varieties and a slew of sandwich, dinner and combo options, the online ordering option is the way to go for both convenience and speed at this takeout-only fish joint. On the day we visited, the... Read More

Always looking for a bargain, we’d heard about Burger Night at the Roycroft Inn in East Aurora, but we didn’t expect the mob scene we encountered on a recent Tuesday.One wonders what Elbert Hubbard would think about his old print shop area – now the Craftsman Lounge – becoming one of the hot...
