Venue Info

The origin of a dish as ubiquitous as the Buffalo chicken wing can't seriously be pegged down to one spot, right? Wrong. Anchor Bar is the Buffalo wing spring in Buffalo, New York. Way back in 1964, the bartender's mother fried up some hot sauce-drenched wings (which she had laying around to make chicken stock) for his drunk friends. Little did she know she had birthed a legendary bar bite. The wings are THE reason to visit, but not the only one: a buzzy atmosphere keeps things fun in a room filled with motorcycle paraphernalia, wall-mounted license plates, and a selection of kick-ass sauces you can buy on your way out.
