Book Your Trip to Buffalo, There’s Now an Official Buffalo Wing Trail!
Buffalo, New York now has an official Buffalo Wing Trail “celebrating the dish that became synonymous with a city.”

The trail is dubbed America’s Tastiest Drive, with stops at 12 restaurants where you can devour these delicious wings. The trail begins at the Anchor Bar—a Buffalo-based restaurant chain that claims to have invented Buffalo wings—and continues on through several other well-know wing joints in the area. 

Each restaurant has their own variation of the buffalo-style wing with secret ingredients and recipes making up each of their sauces that they then slather on to each savory wing. As their press release states: 

“Visit Buffalo Niagara polled its more than 86,000 followers on Facebook to establish a list of the top wing restaurants in Western New York. VBN staff also reviewed local media outlets for previously published surveys and articles, checked online reviews and consulted with National Buffalo Wing Festival founder Drew Cerza before determining the final list of partnering restaurants. Each site on the Wing Trail was visited at least twice by VBN staff to ensure the highest standards of wing quality and customer service were in place.”
