There’s nothing quite like walking into a packed bar full of Bills fans. I mean, am I right or AM I RIGHT? Then, let’s factor in the following: Brunch options. Pizza options. Beer options. Cocktail options. Dessert options. BLOODY MARY FLIGHTS. Okay so you get it. But did I mention FUNNEL FRIES?! 

Let’s just say, I wasn’t surprised that the entire population of Clarence had gathered at Santora’s Pizza Pub & Grill on a recent Sunday brunch visit. It’s a suburbanite dream, really. The options!

Round one: Bloody Mary flight ✅

I’m talking six little salt-rimmed glasses full of my favorite mix of elixirs and tom juice. And an ACTUAL PLATTER of garnish. Like. Guys. Skewers of shrimp, olives, salami, pepperoncini, capicola, cheese, pickles, etc etc etc!

Round two: stuffed banana peppers and jalapeño potato pancakes. Cause why wouldn’t you want to kick your hangover in the a$$ even harder? One stuffed banana pepper and my brain re-entered my existence. The potato pancakes definitely left a bit to be desired in the moist department but a nice slather of its accompanying spicy aioli took it up to a solid 7.5.

Round three: hot BBQ wings and traditional white pizza. Definitely the highlight of the meal, wings were nice and crispy and the sauce was on point. The za had a crust that was cooked to perfection and a solid distribution of cheese and toppings. Definitely went back for that second slice, which says something after everything we had already indulged in!


Round four: funnel fries. Why wouldn’t you want to transport yourself to the Erie County fair during booze-frenzied brunch? Yeah. That’s what I thought.

Well, folks, as I said above: it really wasn’t shocking that Santora’s was lit af on a Sunday afternoon during a Bills game. The space itself is gigantic and it was even nice enough for people to be out watching the game on the patio.
