“Home of the original buffalo wing”

One night back on March 4,1964, Dominic Bellissimo was tending bar at the now famous Anchor Bar Restaurant in Buffalo, NY. Late that evening, a group of Dominic's friends arrived at the bar with ravenous appetites. Dominic asked his mother, Teressa, to prepare something for his friends to eat. They looked like chicken wings, a part of the chicken that usually went into the stock pot for soup.

Teressa had deep fried the wings and flavored them with a secret sauce. The wings were an instant hit and it didn't take long for people to flock to the bar to experience this new taste sensation. From that evening on, Buffalo Wings became a regular part of the menu at the Anchor Bar. The phenomenon created in 1964 by Teressa Bellissimo has spread across the globe. Although many have tried to duplicate Buffalo Wings, the closely guarded secret recipe is what makes Frank & Teressa's the proclaimed "Best Wings in the World."

Anchor Bar has been featured on Food WarsFood Paradise, and Throwdown with Bobby Flay.

We had to try this place and it was awesome! We were a large party of 15 and the device was awesome. Between all of us we had a wide variety of food everything was delicious.

Hype aside, these were damn good wings. They were big and they were crispy!

Don't be fooled by any other restaurant that serves wings. Once you've had anchor bar wings, you will compare every other wing to them. Well worth the stop in Buffalo!

There are wings and then there are wings! Oh my goodness, these were absolutely to die for and I'm not even a huge wing fan. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and everyone was super nice. In you want some fantastic wings, Anchor Bar is well worth a detour.

Ah, the birthplace of the Buffalo wing. They had a really big menu with almost anything you could want on it, but I can't promise it'll be as good as the wings. As for the wings, they were really good but not mind-blowing.
