Passing through Buffalo on a Sunday morning and had to have some Buffalo style wings but were too early for lunch at any of the Buffalo restaurants touting their wings. Had to keep going so gave up on the wing thing. Hit Batavia around 11am, found this place on Tripadvisor and took a chance. The restaurant has a dark barroom feel when you walk in but guess what -no cigarette smell! Hit the jackpot with wings and ribs. Best baby back ribs I've ever had (read: most meaty). Wings were everything we thought they should be. Mine were mild, flavorful but but didn't eat through my lips, my son's were hot and just right for his preference. Daughter's medium wings were to her liking. Service was excellent. Didn't see any children there so not sure they would enjoy it. Go early -I can understand why there would be lines to get into this place.

Whenever we are in the mood for ribs there is no question about "where to go." I have never had a disappointing meal at Alex's. The only thing I would prefer is that the tables be further apart.

Living in Batavia we have the choice of many places to eat on any evening. Alex's Place is ALWAYS the choice for a special occasion . The food, atmosphere, & service are amazing. If you only have one place to eat while in town, make sure it's at Alex's Place.

We are from Canada and have family that visit this restaurant once a year to celebrate a birthday.They stumbled upon it by accident and fell in love. We were invited to go along this year as we had heard so much about it .Alex's Place has its own unique personality and atmosphere that is hard to find now a days. Chain restaurants have become to boring.

We did not have a reservation (we thought we would not need one) but when we arrived at 3:00 pm the parking lot was already packed. We were told that there were no tables available but we could sit at the Oyster Bar that overlooked the open kitchen. We grabbed it!

The menu is quite extensive featuring mainly a variety of steaks, ribs and chicken. We started out with the French Onion soup. Delicious! For the entrée I actually chose the Sunday dinner special of Turkey, dressing and all the fixings. The cost was just 10.99. The rest of our group had steaks, lobster and ribs. Everything was hot, on time, steaks tender that you could cut them with a fork. The presentation of the meal was good and the service was quick (especially considering that it was a full house) and friendly.

Our 3 hour trip to Alex's Place was well worth the 3 hour drive and 1 hour wait at the boarder. We may just have to make this a tradition as well.

The quality of Alex's Place has definitely declined in the last fifteen years. While I will still happily stop by to get some quality ribs, it is not the best restaurant in WNY and might not be the best in Batavia.

The meat is still the same quality it has always been. The quality of service and prices has gone down over the last decade or so. I wouldn't order anything else off the menu except for ribs as the quality definitely isn't there.
