Buffalo wings, a delightful combination of fried goodness and zesty sauce, originated in Buffalo, New York, in 1964. Teressa Bellissimo, co-owner of the Anchor Bar, introduced this now-beloved dish, making it an instant hit.

The popularity of hot wings soared when wing prices dropped in the 1980s. Restaurants and bars capitalized on this trend, offering chicken wings as a perfect accompaniment to cold beer.

Today, this spicy delight has become a national favorite, enjoyed in neighborhoods across the country. From Buffalo's culinary ingenuity to the warm vibes of Rochester, NY, embrace the flavors and spirit of upstate New York, where tradition and community blend seamlessly to create an unforgettable dining experience. Enjoy the journey from Buffalo origins to Rochester NY as you indulge in the mouthwatering deliciousness of these delectable wings!
