This Orchard Park institution and has been pushing out great Beef on Weck and down home fare pretty much forever. Thankfully, very little has changed, including the decor, since the early sixties, in spite of a recent reopening. Devoted customers claim the BOW (and beef in general) is the best in town and we find it hard to argue. We love the German Potato Salad, the fish fry, and the ‘folky’ neighborhood atmosphere.
Eckl’s Restaurant is one of the oldest buildings in the Orchard Park area. The structure celebrates its 200th anniversary in 2016. It has long been a landmark in Western New York. It is one of the last spots of the ‘Old Hamburg’ days when this area was known as East Hamburgh. Its ï¬rst owner was Wilhelm Willink, featured prominently in the early settler days in Western New York.
