“Try the Saucy Fingers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013

I live in Nova Scotia and get to Toronto about twice a year, every visit I insist on going to Duffs for Saucy Fingers and a Steam Whistle. Saucy Fingers are so much more than just chicken fingers in wing sauce. I've tried to recreate this menu item when ordering at local pubs on the East Coast, but it's just not the same.

I also love that they serve Saucy Fingers with a side of dill sauce, another item we don't have in Nova Scotia. I have never had a single bad experience when visiting Duff's on College Street,The staff is always friendly and my food arrives in a timely manner.

“It's all about the wings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

Duff's has more on the menu than just wings but it is essentially a one-trick pony. If you don't like wings don't come here unless you have to tag along with a wing lover. And the wings are authentic Buffalo-style, like you get at the Anchor Bar, Duff's in Buffalo, etc. Medium-hot sauce spicing at Duff's is the equivalent of hot at most Toronto wing places. I like 10 medium-hot wings, a Greek salad, and a pint of Creemore beer. The place is kid-friendly and my kids like the mild wings. The service is great, they get the wings to your table quickly for a busy place. The servers don't hover but if you need something they are right there. They aren't the cheapest wings in Toronto, however I recommend Duff's to all chicken wing lovers.

“Amazing Wings!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

The wings at Duffs are the best. The vinigry hot sauces are great but if you enjoy "hot" at a typical wing place, then medium will likely be where you should start as they can be quite spicy. The spicy bbq is good too. I usually order 10 wings and a caesar salad and this quite a good amount of food. If I am there with others, I will split a small order of fries. Tuesday is the wing deal day - but I avoid it because it gets very busy. Enjoy!

“True to the Buffalo tradition.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2013

If you're in the area or are willing to go out of your way for genuine buffalo wings, Duff's is the place. True to the traditions of Anchor Bar, Honey's, & of course, the original Duff's, the wings are huge & the sauces very good.

Duff's has mastered the art of the very hot but very flavourful sauce.

The visit isn't cheap, but it is fair for the quantity & quality.

“Fine, if you like wings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2013

This is one of our sons' favorites. Although I don't share their enthusiasm for the hot goo Duff's cover the wings in, I find the place to be tolerable. The menu is limited, but their chicken sandwiches are better than adequate. The sports bar atmosphere will turn some people off, but I don't mind that either. I would never visit it alone, and my wife dislikes it, but it does nicely as a compromise choice for lunch and dinner when I'm out with the boys.
