These meaty Buffalo wings will burn your lips. Great bleu cheese and cold domestic beers. Michael says,"These are some LARGE and SAUCY Buffalo Wings. Served up with a "friendly" biker crowd, big screen TV and wild Buffalo Bills fans. RANDY's is a local tradition in stuffin' face and droppenem' down the hatch."

This wings fan say's he's lived in Buffalo for twenty years and there's none better than Duff's wings. They have meaty, buffalo style wings (naturally), adequate bleu cheese and lots of imports. He says the sauce is lip blistering as illustrated by the message on the waitresses' shirts. They read, "Medium is hot, medium hot is very hot and hot is extremely hot." Any questions?

Mike says,"These are the best damn wings I've ever had. They're big, sloppy, and taste great. I've lived in Buffalo for six years - these wings are even better than The Anchor Bar!" Mike is the third person to tell me that Duff's beats the Anchor Bar. I think I would really enjoy finding out for myself. It will happen in '99.

These meaty, buffalo style wings will burn your lips. Great bleu cheese and lots of imported beers. Bill says' "Huge meaty wings come in medium, hot, nuclear, or Hoope's which are deep fried until really crispy and almost burnt. They come with chunky bleu cheese, ranch dressing and a pile of carrot sticks and celery. They also have a bucket of wings(about 3 dozen) with a bowl of bleu. Massive beer list,regional, national and imports. Ice cold Labatt's Blue on tap. Wing paradise!

Justin says,"I'm surprised to not see this one listed. I moved to NYC recently, but I used to live off of Elmwood on the west side in Buffalo and went here every Saturday night. The wings are arguably the best in the city (and therefore the world) with the possible exception of Duff's and La Nova. The wings themselves are huge, very meaty and no batter. I've never tried the hottest sauce myself, but I've heard varying remarks. From the people who love hot and spicy foods, they said it wasn't that bad."

V.Gabrielle adds this, "Being a Buffalo native, I'm partial to the Anchor Bar. Any pizza place in Bflo does passable wings. Wegman's wings are surprisingly good, fat and spicy. Outside of Bfflo, good luck. They always want to bread them, and call them "Buffalo Wings" (grrrr.) My suggestion (and what I do, now that I live in SF): buy uncooked wings, have someone you love send you Anchor Bar wing sauce, and make them at home!"

Chris says,"Growing up in Buffalo you almost have to live in a cave to not have at least tried LA NOVA wings. They have been shipped to our troops while they were in the middle east. More importantly they are the only other wings that live up to the standard that The Anchor Bar has set for the city and the rest of the world. These wings are hot, but not so much that you cannot taste a certain unique flavor. The blue cheese is also better than you recieve with most wings."

Steve say's,"This establishment is tucked away in Suffolk County, Long Island, New york. It is a full-fledged, Irish sports pub. Their WINGS are excellent, and the beer is ice-cold. Not only can you enjoy the wings and beer, but there are 10 t.v. screens located around the pub showing various sporting events, worldwide. Places like this keep me away from those crowded commercial franchises, where service with a smile is taught, not learned and the food is microwaved..."

Steve say's,"Order them extra crispy! The sauce will make your lips tingle,but not so hot that you cant enjoy the flavor of the sauce and the chicken. These are just right! The sauce itself has a great hot sauce flavor. They use a chunky style blue cheese dressing thats very thick and delicious. They have a decent selection of beers but not huge. Overall, These are the best wings in town! For my money you cant beat Elbow Room wings."

Scott says, "Good wings; large portions, pretty tasty. I wouldn't go out of my way for them, or tout them as a prime example of wings, but I've had them as my dinner more than once. This is a brew pub, so although their beers are "domestic" (all of them being brewed on the premises), they are quite good. Their Black Forest Amber won a gold medal in the '99 Great American Brew Festival."

They do jumbo, unbattered wings and offer a daily special of a single or double order and a pitcher of soda or beer for less than $10 for a single or $13 for a large. Good bleu cheese, too. I also recommend 'Billy Fries'- curly fries topped with melted cheeses (and chili if desired) with a side of salsa."

Large, meaty, Buffalo wings served with good bleu cheese and several cold imported beers to choose from. Jonathan says,"This town tavern north of Niagara Falls offers some of the best wings in the WNY area- they're huge and made the proper Buffalo (no batter) way. We ordered medium- just spicy enough." Jonathan also mentioned that he enjoyed the company of a great friend there. Sounds like a complete experience.

These meaty, 'voodoo' wings will make you break a sweat. Like Buffalo style wings they have no batter. They have bleu cheese dip and a selection of several imported beers. For something quite different, Scott suggests, "Blackened Voodoo Wings. More of a dry rub than a sauce, they're Cajun-style blackened. They sponsor a weekend-long blues music festival in Westchester County, NY."

Virgil's wings are meaty and lightly breaded. They have a great bleu cheese dip and all the imported beers. The wings are a spicy barbeque, but not sweet. Scott says,"They're nicely spiced even though I usually prefer my sauce about to spontaneously combust. They have a lot of interesting beers. You'd better set aside a few weeks if you're going to try them all." Scott seems to have a knack for finding the interesting wings.

"pizza uno" was their only competitor, and that's a chain. They also have about 25+ sauces, as well as great fried chicken, cooked to order."

Brian says, "I don't eat the blue cheese - so I gave it a fair rating...You can get wings with batter - although I never have....I would recommend getting their wings hot with a side of their "Painful" sauce. I have eaten 10 wings painful before, but you have to really like HOT food... These wings are the best in Rochester -- bigger and tastier and hotter than Jeremiah's or any other place in town! Great beer specials too...nothing mainstream on draft"

Rick says,"Absolutely the hottest wings I have EVER had !!! They puree peppers, and actually dip their hotter versions in the pureed peppers. They have 5 levels of "heat": Mild, Medium, Hot, Catatonic, and Wise Guys. These things are so hot, your lips and tongue go numb. They are actually too hot to eat a lot of, so we stepped down a level to the Catatonic. They are still pretty hot, but bearable. The Wise Guys are just a macho thing we just had to do."

Shannon says,"These are by far the best wings I have ever had. They have mild (I call those WUSS.), hot (I call those WUSS.), extra hot (I call those AWESOME.) and Cherynoble II (I call that just plain crazy.) We asked the waitress if anyone really gets Cherynoble II, and she said not really (so it is not just me). But the extra hot hits the spot everytime. My friends an I try every wing place in our reach. I recommend them to anyone."

Tobias says, "I'd like to echo the current review of "The 'Light" and say that in my lifetime wings quest, these are still the best. Again, the extra hot have that rare hot/flavor balance. I have tried the Chernobyls... one bite and I was done (and I usually order the *hottest* wings on the menu). My advice if you ever show up is to get hot or extra hot with some Chernobyl sauce on the side."

John says,"I love hot hot wings and generally am either very disappointed or marginally satisfied with unknown restaurant wings. But, this place has absolutely the best combination of flavor and heat I've had at a pub/restaurant anywhere. They're so meaty you'll feel like you ate twice that or more. The place has a nice style to it as well and the staff is tremendously friendly. If you're in the Finger Lakes area, you owe it to yourself to stop here."

They'll give you extra buffalo wing sauce and blue cheese, which are both tops. 2 orders between the 3 of us and extra wing sauce to dip my salad in. Yummy. I'm getting hungry just thinking about 'em :)"

I like to get the wing sauce and bleu cheese on the side and dip the wings first in the bleu and then in the hot sauce----mmmmmmmgooooood. This is a delivery place, so They deliver to most of the south and west side, and even on Onondaga hill. I grew up in Syracuse and noticed you didn't have a syracuse listing--thanx, mike" We do now.

These wings are definitely the best. I was in Watertown because of the military and I would go back just for the wings. I have friends in places like Hawaii, Florida, and Washington who dream about the wings everyday. Too bad there is no beer, but there is a bar next door!"

Bob says, "Great bar and grill in suburb of Buffalo, NY. TONS of micro-brews, local brews, imports and domestics. Eat your peanuts and toss the shells on the floor over a few beers, then order up the wings. Wings are fantastic (no batter, the way TRUE Buffalonians do it), the blue cheese is thick and tasty (I think it's Marie's brand, not sure though), the celery is crisp and the sauce is spicy. I've had wings all over the country, but NOBODY can make 'em like a Buffalonian eatery can, period."
