Taste of Buffalo Pizzeria

Though I've never been to Buffalo, I LOVE buffalo wings. The spicy and tangy flavors that wash over my tongue are amazing, and I find myself craving Buffalo Wings on a regular basis. So when a buddy offered to pay for my cat-sitting services (coming soon to a city near you) with a plate of hot wings, I was a very happy cat-sitter!

We headed over to Taste of Buffalo Pizzeria, off of Old Statesville Rd., and in the same complex as Showmars' (reviewed earlier). My friend had been there before, and on the way over he briefed me that the owners were from Buffalo and that everything there was authentic.

This means that I was REALLY excited about heading over there.

We got inside, and it had more character than I was expecting. The walls were adorned with sports memorabilia, and you could tell that the owners are proud of this little restaurant.

We walked up to the counter, and placed an order for 20 Hot Wings and two sodas. After being informed that it'd take a few minutes to be completed, we took our drinks and headed outside to enjoy the nice weather.

After sitting back and relaxing for a while, the wings arrived. I then quickly ran inside and grabbed a LOT of extra napkins. Because when it comes to eating wings, I'm messy, really messy, I resemble a two year old who has just found and eaten one of those super large chocolate bars. I'm not kidding! After I get into some wings, I'll probably wind up with sauce in my hair, and need a shower to clean-up.

No, I'm not proud of this, but at least I know what my weaknesses are! :)

Now where was I? Oh yeah, the wings. The wings were deep fried so that the skin was crispy, but the meat was tender and juicy. And the wing sauce was good, but not nearly as hot as I was expecting. These hot wings were more like luke-warm wings. Don't get me wrong, they were still delicious, but I was expecting a little more heat. Fortunately, they have still have Extra Hot and Fire Hot to try. YAAY!

Quite simply, the wings were great. In addition, they came with blue cheese dressing and fresh celery to cut-down on the heat. I'll be back to eat here again.

Atmosphere: 3/5
Food: 4/5

Conclusion: I really liked the wings, and I'll be back to try the pizza. This place has some quality food at a great price.

  1. Try the from the pit wings, and you need to tell them how hot you like them if not they will always put on a medium sauce.
