Shuffling Off to Buffalo

A couple of times each year Kate has tennis tournaments in Erie, PA.  The really good news about Erie is that it's just over two hours from my house which makes it a very desirable tournament destination.

Nonetheless, while Erie does have its charm, it is less than, shall we say, exciting.  But there is a silver lining.  Erie is about an hour and a half from Buffalo, New York and the Anchor Bar.  The Anchor Bar is home to the original Buffalo chicken wings and it is well worth the drive.

This was the second time we have made the pilgrimage to the Anchor Bar and it was as good as I remembered it.  To be clear, these are the best Buffalo wings I have ever eaten.  They're crispy and spicy and just delicious.  The downside of a visit to the Anchor Bar is that I can guarantee that you will eat too much and you will feel sick.  I am still recovering from my dinner there last night.

Not only does the Anchor Bar have the best wings you've ever eaten, they also have all kinds of other main courses (none of which I have ever tried) and absolutely delicious onion rings (which I have had).  The ambiance is fun and very casual and the wait is always long.  In fact, I would not be surprised to learn that there is at least a one hour wait in the midst of a major snow storm.

If you ever find yourself anywhere near Buffalo, shuffle your way over to the Anchor Bar.
