My family loves Duff's! Duff's is my favorite place to eat in Buffalo. They serve the best chicken wings ever!

Recently took a trip to Buffalo and made a stop at Duff's on Sheridan Drive. This is the same place me and my friends would go to when I went to school at UB - and nothing has changed. The wings were great and, yes, the medium-hot sauce was very, very hot! Service was also very good. Good memories at... More

Visit on a weekend night and the line goes out the door (one in Amherst). Many people rate these wings as best in the city. There are limited healthy options here and fried foods dominate selections! Wings are why you go!

We were in Amherst visiting family, and we ordered Duff's Wings, per family tradition. We placed an order for pick up ordered fifty wings. The wings were 10 plain (no sauce), 10 mild, 20 medium, and 10 hot. We also got 2 large orders of fries with gravy. Everything tasted delicious, as always. When in the area, try Duff's!

I always look forward to a visit to Duff's in Buffalo. I've never had a bad experience. The Duff's microbrew was a nice beer. Tried it for the first time tonight and was pleasantly surprised.

Perhaps my review is jaded due to the fact I had heard the wings here were the best ever, so the expectations were high. While the wings were good, they were by no means the best I've ever had. Also, quite disappointed with the "heat" factor. I usually like suicide, or hotter...their slogan was "Medium is hot, Medium Hot is... More

We were told that Duff's was the original Buffalo Wing and definitely had to make a stop! This is a total hole in the wall which kinda adds to it's charm. This is definitely no frills. Paper towel rolls on the table and a simple menu. We started with the fried pickles which were not very good at all. They... More

We were at the Orchard Park location and were very disappointed. For a place that built it's business serving great wings it couldn't have have been much worse. The wings were tough because they were undercooked and the touted "hot" were just salty. The service was not good either. Would NEVER recommend this place as a showcase for Buffalo food.... More

Always loved Duffs. Since Anchor Bar opened a few blocks away the family thought we would try a "wing off". No contest. Duffs won 10-0. BEST wings. Not in Buffalo. Just Best wings anywhere. We generally get take out to avoid the lines. Doesn't matter. Best!!

The best & sauciest wings around. Meaty, juicy, crisp wings swimming in a pool of hot sauce and an order of fries to clean it all up at the end. Doesn't get any better!!
