Anchor Bar
Chicken Wings

Who would have guessed a late-night snack prepared by Teressa Bellissimo for her son and his friends would turn into an international phenomenon. There would be no Buffalo Wing without Anchor Bar. Since 1964, Anchor Bar has been one of the most popular restaurants in Buffalo. Visitors from all over the world travel to Anchor Bar to try this famous fried specialty. The restaurant is the closest thing we have to a chicken wing museum, the décor caters to the wing-happy crowd and chicken memorabilia lines the walls. And even after more than 50 years, Anchor Bar still serves a damn good chicken wing. They are piled on a large metal tray and accompanied with blue cheese (no ranch, don’t even ask) and celery, which are true chicken wing eating staples. Their standard medium sauce, a mix of Frank’s Hot Sauce and butter, is considered the standard for the greater Western New York area. Anchor Bar has recently expanded, even into Canada, but make sure you visit the original historic location on Main Street in downtown Buffalo for a true wing experience.
