I have lived in the western New York area for more than 20 years now and I have to say that we have some of the best food around! Before my family and I moved here we lived in Illinois and Indiana. I was just a small child then but I don’t have any memories of the food from that area. It wasn’t until we moved here that I started to realize that food isn’t just a means of survival, it’s a culture and world all it’s own and I am happy to share with you some of the very best restaurants from right here in Buffalo, NY!
Where can I find the best burger?
Allen Burger Venture
This buffalo restaurant is located at 175 Allen Street in Buffalo, NY. They are known as a burger and beer joint. Allen Burger Venture believes in quality so they make sure that their beef is sourced from grass-fed, hormone and antibiotic-free cows that are verified to live on humane ranches.
I have never tried Allen Burger Venture for myself but, I must say, based on their menu prices their food better be as good if not better than the reviews! Allen Burger Venture has a 4.6 out of 5-star rating on Google Maps.
The best burger that I have tried would have to be from Rock Burger!
I recently had the pleasure of reviewing this burger joint known for their stuffed burgers and they were out of this world!
Where can I find the best taco?
Taqueria Los Mayas
This authentic Mexican restaurant is said to have “the best tacos around” according to Google reviewers. Taqueria Los Mayas are located at 3525 Genesee Street in Cheektowaga, NY (not far from Buffalo). This restaurant is known for the delicious food that is locally sourced from our farmer’s markets.
I have never personally tried the tacos here at Taqueria Los Mayas but after gazing at their online menu I can attest to their incredible balance of flavors that are only outmatched by their incredible prices! I would definitely give this taco joint a taste next time I am in the Cheektowaga area. Taqueria Los Mayas have a 4.7 out of 5-star rating on Google Maps.
The best taco that I have tried would probably be from Don Tequila.
This is another popular Mexican restaurant in Buffalo, NY. Though, my opinion is several years old as I have not been there since before the summer of 2015.
Where can I find the best buffalo wings?
Wingnutz is a restaurant best known for its jumbo and unique chicken wings as well as their tavern-style roast beef. This establishment is located inside of the Knights of Columbus building at 1530 Kenmore ave on Buffalo, NY. Reviewers rave about the large size of the wings as well as the unique flavor that they carry.
I have not had the pleasure of trying Wingnutz before but I sure am adding them to my “must try and review” list. When I look through their menu it can seem a little simple. Wings with your traditional sauces of choice and roast beef sandwiches. But, I can tell that there is something special about their food. I truly believe that a simple menu doesn’t mean the food is simple, but rather quite the opposite. The prices seem fair, the descriptions and reviews are mouthwatering and I can’t wait to try them for myself!
The best wings I have ever had in the area come from an old local watering hole here in Niagara Falls, NY called Saint A’s. It was actually where I got my first job taking food orders over the phone. They had incredible food but I believe the business ended up going under due to trouble with the law.
