Restaurant Profile: Anchor Bar (Buffalo, NY)

We sat down with #WingFest15 restaurant participant Anchor Bar to discuss the upcoming National Buffalo Wing Festival. We had more than a few questions for the place that served the original Buffalo Wing, but narrowed it down to five. Here’s what they had to say!

#1. Thanks to the Anchor Bar, we can all enjoy chicken wings as they were meant to be! What is the farthest someone has traveled (that you know of) to try your original Buffalo Wings?  

At the Anchor Bar, we have had people travel from Japan, China, Australia, Spain, South Africa and hundreds of other countries too numerous to mention.  Our famous sauce is sold in 17 different countries including Turkey, England, Japan & Taiwan. 

#2. What is your favorite Wing Fest moment from the past?  

The Blue Cheese bobbing contest is always one of our favorites.

#3. Carrots, celery, or both? 


#4. What Buffalo, NY activity do you recommend to visitors?  

The new activity in Buffalo is our Canal side experience and the Harbor Center.  And, of course, when in season in Buffalo, the Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bills games are a definite.

#5. What wing flavors will you be bringing to #WingFest15?  

Medium, Hotter, Garlic Parm & Chipotle BBQ
