While in Buffalo, New York, we had the chance to visit the home of the original buffalo chicken wings, the famous Anchor Bar.
We arrived at the end of the lunch rush and the small parking lot was full. After a few laps through the lot, we finally got a spot and got in line to have a bite to eat. The creator of the buffalo wing dish, Teressa Bellissimo, greeted us.
We got a double order of the wings with a medium sauce. The wings were very large and meaty. I had a hard time fitting the image of the huge plate into the lens of my cell phone camera. The sauce was perfect.
The wings were served with a dipping sauce that tasted like a combination of real buttermilk ranch dressing with bleu cheese crumbles and fresh ground pepper. It was wonderful.
The store has a small gift shop for souvenirs. It's a near her ...
I think we will visit this place again. It's only a few minutes on clear roads from the Buffalo airport. The food was really great and the building full of fun stuff to see. On the down side, the parking was difficult and the wait staff indifferent.
