There are plenty of reasons to head out to your favorite sports bar, but the Buffalo Bills are obviously our favorite. Whatever the reason may be – Bills, Sabres, in need of a fried sampler platter on a Sunday after a fun night out – these spots can offer good times win or loose.

With our favorite QB Josh Allen and All-Pro receiver Stefon Diggs giving us plenty of reasons to get together with friends and celebrate this football season, this list is sure to come in handy. If you haven’t secured season tickets, or if you’re looking for a new atmosphere to cheer on our beloved home teams, we have great news for you. Buffalo is home to some of the best sports bars in New York State – cheers, Buffalo!
