“old-fashioned milkshakes & hearty menu”

Lake Effect Diner is one of the last few dining car-style diners left in America. Lovingly restored by the Curtin family, this diner hearkens a better time. With old-fashioned milkshakes and a hearty menu of home favorites, Lake Effect has become a popular destination for locals and travelers. Featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

I've tried to like this place so many times because I used to live a block away from it, but the food here is just not that good. The best thing they used to do is offer Buy 1 Get 1 Free milkshakes on Tuesdays. It was an awesome and cheap way to get delicious milkshakes with friends on a Tuesday night.

The home fries with breakfast made the whole trip worth it...not to mention the homemade strawberry jam and toast and fresh squeezed orange juice. So many little touches put this place on the top of our list of places to eat. Will be stopping back in before we leave the Buffalo area.
