Quick Bite: One Eyed Jacks

Before I left for New York City (more on that later this week), I grabbed lunch with my Dad at One Eyed Jacks in Lockport. While I have been aware of the restaurant for a while, I waited until last week to take the drive up Transit Road to visit the casual BBQ restaurant. Since […]

But Seriously, Let’s Talk About Our Meal at Friday’s

Yesterday we attempted our own take at an April Fool’s joke and it seemed like most of our readers really enjoyed the post. Our friend Ben Tsujimoto at Buffalo.com even named it one of the five best local April Fool’s pranks. Hopefully it was clear from our post that we actually had a really bad […]

Food Porn: T.G.I. Friday’s

It’s been no secret that for four years Alli and I have tried to shine a spotlight on Western New York’s locally owned and operated restaurants. We thought that there was an endless supply of local establishments that we could write about, but we’ve hit a wall and it’s time we stopped lying to ourselves. […]

First Bite: Rachel’s Mediterranean (Downtown)

A few years ago, Alli and I grabbed lunch with my cousin Chris at Rachel’s Mediterranean at UB’s North Campus. We enjoyed their Greek and Lebanese menu; it was very affordable and had some of our favorite dishes (lebne, chicken shwarma). So when I read that Rachel’s was opening a third location off Chippewa (their […]

First Bite: The Lenox Grill

I never had a chance to visit North, but from what others have told me it was a dive-y bar that served a pretty good burger. In the last couple of years, the bar changed management and eventually closed. It didn’t remain empty for long. Prime 490 closed around the same time and the chef […]

Quick Bite: Pizza Oven

We’ve known about Lockport’s Pizza Oven for a while now. Our friends Alan Bedenko (our go to pizza connoisseur) and Jason Wulf (co-owner of Lake Effect Ice Cream and Lockport resident) both told us that we needed to go out of our way to visit the small pizzeria. But there were a couple problems, the […]

Food Porn: Anderson’s Frozen Custard (Amherst)

I was looking through our master restaurant list the other day and noticed that we were missing one of Buffalo’s biggest chain restaurants, Anderson’s. At first, I was shocked that we hadn’t written about any of their locations in four years but I started to realize that I’ve never really liked Anderson’s. They built a […]

First Bite: Savoy

Living in Allentown, over the summer I noticed the construction and renovation going on inside (and outside) the former Claiborne Liquors. It appeared that the renovated building was waiting for a tenant to come along and I eventually stopped paying attention. Then out of nowhere, I was reading a Buffalo Rising article about the opening […]

Food Porn: Wok & Roll

This meal wouldn’t have happened without our friends, the Walley’s. While scrolling through twitter, we noticed they had just finished eating dinner at a Chinese restaurant in Williamsville and they mentioned something about soup dumplings. Our love of soup dumplings is well documented; they might be one of our favorite dishes of all time. So, […]

Quick Bite: Samurai

Working in the Getzville/East Amherst area, I probably have driven by Samurai dozens of times. The restaurant is located in the Tops plaza in between a Chinese restaurant and a Subway. It’s incredibly easy to drive by and not notice. When Alli and I visited Samurai for lunch, I assumed it would be a fairly […]
