It is accessible by Buffalo Metro Rail, being approximately equidistant from the Allen-Medical Campus and Summer–Best stations. The bar is most famous for being the birthplace of spicy chicken wings known...

You've likely heard of Buffalo wings and may even know that Frank and Teressa's Anchor Bar is where they originated in 1964. Here they consider them to 'be the best in the world' and if you can't actually come to Buffalo, you can still order them online as well as their signature sauce. If wings aren't your thing, you can choose from made-to-order pub-grub. Minutes from the Buffalo Theater...

Okay, it's kinda cool to eat chicken wings in the restaurant where they were accidentally discovered in 1964, but the wings are nothing exceptional -- after all, there's not much you can do with chicken wings but deep fry 'em and serve 'em with hot sauce, blue cheese, and celery -- and there are certainly nicer places to eat them than in this divey bar. Come only if you want to pay tribute to...

The joint will singe your senses with spicy wings and the hottest jazz in town.\r

Awesome wings. Awesome, awesome, awesome. This is our 2nd time there and it was just as good as the first a few years ago. The pizzas looked good -- but we just ate wings and fried vegetables.

Second visit to the capitol of chicken wings

We returned to the home of Buffalo Wings on a snowy winter day. We ordered wings, of course, which were good but not great (the regular and extra hot wings that we transported back to our sons in Brooklyn and DC were also rated "OK").

The Anchor Bar is a family friendly restaurant. We accommodate people of all ages and also feature a kid's menu.

Lunch: This is the original home of Buffalo wings, which were first concocted in 1964 by the bar's original proprietor as a snack for late night patrons. Still available, the wings are smothered with spicy Buffalo sauce and served with celery and bleu cheese dressing. The Anchor Bar is still a local favorite, and the menu features Italian-American entrees and classics like chicken cacciatore,...
