Daily Wing Specials | Buffalo NY

Hello friends.

That’s right…I have now lived in Buffalo for two years and I continue to enjoy my time out here on the Niagara Frontier.  As I noted in my first Chicken Fried Buffalo post, I am a fan of Western New York and the quality of life here.

It is also evident to anyone that knows me or has read this blog that I am also a fan of Buffalo-style chicken wings and my love of wings definitely predates my relocation to Buffalo.  When trying to decide what to write in this anniversary post, I pondering many things but for some reason it all came back to chicken wings.

One of the things that I have founding puzzling about a city and region that boasts some of the best wings in the country was that I could not find a single list of daily and weekly wing specials in one place.  Where could I find a good, cheap wing on a random Wednesday night?  It was that quest that gave me the idea to just start my own list.

My goal in this post is not to do a listing of the BEST wings in Western New York…even though two of my favorites are on the list.  This post is the beginning of a comprehensive list that I will update occasionally.

I know that there are many other establishments that have wing specials on these same days and in some cases might have better or less expensive wings, but I have personally made myself available at each of the places on this list.  As I find others, there will be updates and additions.

Wellington

The Wellington Pub

MONDAY

WELLINGTON PUB

Wing Special Price:  .45 each

1541 Hertel Ave

Buffalo, NY 14216 North Buffalo, Hertel Avenue

716.833.9899

In my opinion, the best wings in the city of Buffalo can be found at the Wellington Pub in North Buffalo.  Every style of wing that I have tried has been outstanding and they feature a different  “special” wing each Monday night.  The dry “fajita” style wing is one of the best chicken wings I have ever tasted.  Also, they will finish your wings on char-grill if requested.  Add to these wings a couple of $1 Molson drafts, Monday Night Football and/or WWE RAW and you have the best of Buffalo.  CFB NOTE:  The Wellington will be full of local regulars so be respectful and don’t be a jackass.  You’re welcome.

TUESDAY

QUAKER STEAK & LUBE

Wing Special Price:  $11.99 All-You-Can-Eat

6727 Transit Rd

Lancaster, NY 14221

716.204.9293

Readers of this blog know that I shy away from restaurant chain locations whenever possible but this wing special is too good to be left off the list.  This Pennsylvania-based chain is a regional competitor to Buffalo Wild Wings.  They have 26 different sauces so there is something for everyone’s taste.  CFB NOTE: Remember, pace yourself because it is a marathon not a sprint.

WEDNESDAY

BUFFALO SPORTS GARDEN

Wing Special Price:  .45 each

2945 Southwestern Blvd

Orchard Park, NY 14127

716.674.4113

If you are in the Southtowns on a Wednesday, the Buffalo Sports Garden serves a quality wing…along with $2 Coors Light Drafts and ½ Price Appetizers.  BSG is also expanding its footprint by adding patio seating.  CFB NOTE:  This place gets very crowded at happy hour and seating at the bar can be scarce.

THURSDAY

GORDON’S ON DELAWARE

Wing Special Price:  .50 each

2263 Delaware Ave

Buffalo, NY 14216

716.874.3020

One of North Buffalo’s best “dive” bars, Gordon’s has over 20 craft beers on tap and live music.  Also, Gordon’s has .50 wings on both Monday and Thursday nights.  They do not have beer specials but Miller Lite and Labatts Blue drafts are $3 every day.  The Spicy Cajun BBQ wings are very good.  CFB NOTE:  The service can be a bit slow because sometimes the bartender also serves as the cook.

FRIDAY

SAVOY RESTAURANT AND TAVERN

Wing Special Price:  FREE (5 – 8pm)

149 Elmwood Ave

Buffalo, NY 14201

716.768.3100

What is better that cheap…FREE AND TASTY. One of the trendy “new” bars in Allentown, the Savoy is one of those places that does “handcrafted cocktails” and Whiskey Tasting Wednesday.  CFB NOTE:  The Savoy is small and the drinks are expensive…you have to pay for the chicken in some fashion…but domestic beers are 2-for-1 and for $5 you can get a plate of bacon. This is a first stop on a nice Friday afternoon for a couple of beers and a few wings.

SATURDAY

Mammoser's

Mammoser’s

MAMMOSER’S

Wing Special Price:  .60 each

16 S Buffalo St

Hamburg, NY 14075

716.648.1390

A favorite of most folks in the Southtowns, this is probably the most unique spot on the list. This little bar in the village has great wings…if you like your wings on the dry side.  Also, Mammo’s unique sauce has a chili powder flavor.  They have occasion beer specials but unpredictable.  CFB NOTE:  This special is actually for a double order priced as a single.

SUNDAY

MISTER GOODBAR

Wing Special Price:  .50 each

1110 Elmwood Ave

Buffalo, NY 14222

716.882.4000

A dark and dingy “dive” bar, Mister Goodbar has upped its game recently by adding an extensive craft beer selection.  This is one of those places where you can see everything cooked at the end of the bar.  In addition to the wing special Sundays, MGB has $1 off craft pints.  CFB NOTE:  Parking can be a nightmare and its location next to Buffalo State can sometimes add the “young and drunk” element.
