    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. 

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

    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
