Anchor Bar

1047 Main St, Buffalo, NY 14209, USA

No trip to Buffalo would be complete without a stop at Anchor Bar. Open since 1964, this is where Teressa Bellissimo served the city’s very first chicken wings. While the restaurant also offers a full menu of salads, sandwiches, and fish fries, you’re here for the wings, which come in mild, medium, hot, and barbecue varieties, plus a suicidal sauce for spice fiends. Good news if you’re craving them when you’re home—Anchor Bar has more than a dozen locations and even ships its wings country-wide.
