    Wings and Beef on Weck for the win. Fast service. Good waitstaff. Best place to eat in the airport. The hot sauce on the wings is not that hot though. Don't be scared.

    Must try item - blue cheese dip

    Steff Hind · March 7
  • Lee S.

    Try the Combo. The Beef on Weck is tasty good - but you NEED the wings!

    Lee Simpson · February 25
  • Mel R.

    Good service. A taste of Buffalo before you even leave the airport! Great food!

    Buffalo Wings are awesome!

    Anya Ivantsova · October 8, 2014

    Wings of course

    This might be obvious, but if you want to go to the Anchor Bar, go to the Anchor Bar. Downtown. Not at the airport. This one has an airport concession connection, and it just isn't the same.

    Dave Whelan · September 16, 2014

    Goooodish food

    Michael Rochman · September 4, 2014
  • Guy M.

    Wings are OK, chicken sandwich was dry, try something else!

    Guy Merrill · August 28, 2014
  • Tracy H.

    A chicken wing omelette and Bloody Mary??? Yes please!!!

    Best service in Buffalo!

    Authentic Buffalo Wings! 'Nuf said!

    Finally compared three of the wings joints in Buffalo..Duff's, La Nova and Anchor Bar..the ranking is in that order...Anchor's suicidal wings?...not very spicy at all unfortunately.

    Dale Burkett · July 5, 2014
  • Gato B.

    Don't think you're getting the real deal here. These are a poor imitation of their wings.

    "About the best wings I've ever had" comment of a customer sitting next to me. To bad I'm on the vegetarian kick.

    Steve Petrosino · March 11, 2014
  • Alex G.

    $6 for a Labatt Blue, even at the Buffalo airport, just seems like price gouging.

    Alex G · December 29, 2013
  • Michael J.

    Ask for extra bleu cheese !

    Michael Jahn · November 26, 2013
  • Carla O.

    Angus beef Burger surprisingly good!! Super juicy and full of flavor!!

    Carla Oliveira · November 24, 2013
  • Philipp ..

    Overpriced junk food! No healthy options. Lousy beer selection.

    Philipp . · November 21, 2013
  • Christine K.

    The wings are worth it and "mild" is not too spicy.

    Christine Kolisz · October 27, 2013

    I walked in at 4:10pm and I was done eating my beef on wick by 4:29. Super fast service.

    Aaron Horn · October 26, 2013
  • Chad W.

    Do NOT get the beef on wick. They use processed beef like subway. Being from Buffalo, I feel this does not appropriately do the classic sandwich justice. Stick to the wings. I am disappoint. :-(

    Chad Williams · October 2, 2013
  • Josh M.

    They even have a gluten free menu.

    Josh May · September 11, 2013
  • Andrew E.

    If you're flying to JFK on JetBlue, this is directly across from the gate. Just wait here.

    Andrew Erdle · September 3, 2013

    It's all about Buffalo Chicken Wings using the original sauce as developed by the recipe's creator, Theressa Bellissimo.

    Marqus R. · August 8, 2013
  • Steve B.

    I realized the airport location of Anchor Bar is obviously not the original, but wow I was extremely disappointed in the wings. WAY too salty - I literally had to rub excess salt off the wings. :-(

    Steve B · July 12, 2013
  • Jody

    No Genny. That's unfortunate.

    Jody · July 1, 2013

    Two words: Gabriel's Gate.

    Mark P · June 21, 2013
  • Bob S.

    Get wings to go on the plane. Limited beer selection.

    Bob Sullivan · May 17, 2013

    Wings were salty as heck. I dunno what the big craze about this place is?

    ZOEBOE · April 20, 2013

    Chicken wings is a must try!!!!!

    Eric · April 2, 2013
  • Andrew R.

    All you peaty scotchers, they have Talisker.

    Andrew R · January 30, 2013
  • Tom C.

    Great wings and blue cheese! Best food in the airport - take some for your flight too!

    Tom Christopher II · January 5, 2013
  • Bob S.

    Not as good as the original. Lacks the atmosphere of the real thing. But great for an airport. Beer selection is poor.

    Bob Sullivan · November 30, 2012
  • Bob

    One word. Duff's.

    Bob · November 26, 2012
  • Donna Mc

    Tourist tip: There are other wings, but Anchor Bar created the original --- it's all about the awesome sauce!

    Donna Mc · November 13, 2012
  • Scott C.

    Ignore the special. It doesn't happen, you have to pay more than you'd think!

    Scott Casson-Rennie · October 31, 2012
  • Tammy K.

    No beer on Sunday before noon!!! Lame!!!!

    Tammy Kerr · September 16, 2012
  • Dan U.

    This place has the best wings. Order them hot, and you've got a piece of Buffalo history.

    Dan Urshel · September 10, 2012
  • Caroline M.

    The Buffalo Combination is a great tour of the city, foodwise. Tasted great, pleasant service.

    Caroline Miller · August 17, 2012
  • Uff

    Can't get a drink before noon??? At an airport?? Really??? That is not cool at all!

    Uff · July 29, 2012
  • Jen14221

    You can actually purchase three wings for $4.25.

    Jen14221 · July 11, 2012
  • David C.

    Buffalo chicken salad...not very saucy, but the Bleu Cheese dressing is delicious!

    David Cook · June 15, 2012
  • Kyle C.

    Check-in special is not a deal at all. You still have to purchase the glass. Please remove this @foursquare.

    Kyle Carpenter · May 27, 2012
  • Lee O.

    They are out of protective boxes and they charge extra for the glass - not very cool of you ask me. But, the wait staff is very cool and honest

    Lee Oliver · May 21, 2012
  • Hiram A R.

    For real wings, go to Duffs.

    Hiram A Rhoads · May 15, 2012
  • Hiram A R.

    Go to Duff's on Dick Rd. near the airport, original on Sheridan or location in Orchard Park if you want to eat real wings.
