There are restaurants with so many good items on the menu that you feel guilty ordering the same thing on repeat visits. And then there are places where everyone’s there for exactly the same thing. At Buff’s, you are there for the wings.

MC Slim JB lays it down: “Buffalo wings as they’re done in Buffalo, NY, are pretty simple: Deep-fried wings (no batter), sauced with butter and Frank’s hot sauce, served with crudités and blue-cheese dressing on the side. Buff’s does a very good version of this canonical style.”

Or, if you prefer, order the honey hots, which MC Slim JB judges to be Buff’s best-seller despite the fineness of the classic version.
