Sadly, Buffalo Business First has confirmed rumors that Eckl’s restaurant in Orchard Park plans to close the doors at the end of the month (Sept. 26). Rumors have been flying in the south towns. Regulars didn’t want to believe it possible. The restaurant is for sale. Hopefully someone will buy it and continue the traditions that have made it popular for so many years.
Eckl’s has long been considered one of the top places in WNY to get great Beef on Weck, plenty of it and hand carved to order, seven days a week. The building has been a land mark in these parts since they were known as East Hamburg – 1816 to be exact. At some point it was moved from South Buffalo Road and is now tucked away on Ellicott. It has served as a tavern in the Eckl family since 1906 and will be missed by many.
