    Food is still excellent after all these years (I've been going there since 1986). They served Buffalo Wings long before they were commonplace, and theirs are still my favorite.

    I recommend the the (formerly as the price is lower) the 12.09— Single order of Spicy, Mega RC, and the cheese fries. Perfect meal for watching quality TV in the back while you feast.

    Best wings around: mild, spicy, suicide (w/ jalepenos) & barbecue flavors. Buffalo Wild Wings doesn't even get close. They also have a limited sandwich menu. Read more

    Made The Daily Meal's list of best buffalo wings in the US! They make all of the sauces in-house and make sure the wings come dripping. Read more

    Criss-cut fries (buffalo chips) are the bomb. Buff Joe's is cash only with a janky ATM near the cash register - come prepared if you don't want to pay the ATM fee!

    Mild wings are more tangy than spicy; great if you can't handle much heat. And yes, the buffalo chips are amazing.

    The suicide wings are incomparable, the chili is addictive & the cheese drenched Buffalo chips will do you in. Parking is decent (meters & lot a block or two away). Read more

    Been going here since a “single 'sui', cheddar chips and a 'gut RC'" plus tax cost exactly $6.66. Those days are long gone. Plan to drop nearly twice that nowadays.

    Try mixing BBQ with mild or spicy if you're looking for something new.

    It's been a rough day and I'm ready for a healing. Lock myself in my room, light a candle, turn the lights down now, cue Marvin Gaye, smother my face with Buffalo Joe's.

    This place was gross. The wings are just drowned in sauce to cover up the fact that there's no meat on the bones. Fries were hard and lemonade watered down. 

    Be careful here. Got some suicide wings here once that gave me food poisoning. Never went back. Good wings though (before the poisoning). Great? Not in my opinion.

    This one isn't ghetto enough for me. No rib tips or Kool-Aide like the one on Howard. They do have beer though.
