Had to visit here whilst in the City after seeing the place on a British TV programme. Glad we did. A very atmospheric place with great decor and good food. Of course we ate their original Buffalo wings, which were tasty.

I had to try this place since it's the birthplace of the Buffalo wing. It did not disappoint. The wings were crispy but juicy. I ordered the Hot but got the bartender to give me a side of the "suicide" sauce. The hot was good...More

While the atmosphere was great, the wings were just ordinary hot wings you can get anywhere and at $13 for 10 wings pricy to boot. Just living on legacy.
