When in Buffalo, sometimes you just want to eat large (amirite?). Luckily, we certainly don’t fall short when it comes to our fave brunch drink. There are some wildly outrageous bloodies that live right here in the Queen City- and we’re about to uncover them, so pull up a chair (seriously, these things are a meal and a half). TBH if you’re not doing a bloody mary like these places, you’re doing it all wrong.

Here are some of the craziest Bloody Mary’s in WNY: 


1. Shirt Factory

115 West Center St, Medina, NY 14103 / More Info

The Shirt Factory is known to be well liked for their bloody Mary, and their garnishes are sure to turn heads. For the ultimate brunch booze, Shirt factory is piling the bloody Mary high with a breakfast sandwich, french toast, and toped with apple slices.

2. JJ’s Casa di Pizza

11 E Mohawk St, Buffalo, NY 14203 / More Info

Don’t expect a celery stick on your bloody mary this time but instead, a greasy slice of pizza (*with the only kind of pepperoni we know- cup and char) drooping over the edges of your glass. It’s available daily with the pizza slice, but on Sundays from noon until the bar dies down, they’re only $5! We repeat: $5. For an entire meal.

3. Rusty Nickel Brewing Company

4350 Seneca St., West Seneca, NY 14224 / More Info

Whether you try their Original Bloody Mary or their Mary Mango Habanero, you’re guaranteed a pile of crazy good garnishes. Plus, even better, they offer crowlers to-go!

4. Sidelines

189 Delaware Ave, Buffalo, NY 14202 / More Info

With a make-your-own bloody mary bar like Sidelines, there are literally no boundaries. You might just end up with a pierogi or a whole chicken finger on your bloody. We’re not complaining either way.

5. Big Ditch Brewing

55 E Huron St, Buffalo, NY 14203 / More Info

Want to talk about a Buffalo Bloody Mary? Big Ditch is offering their Hayburner Bloody which is made with a splash of Hayburner IPA, Tito’s Vodka, tomato juice, hot sauce, and spices. Then it is garnished with a celery stalk, hot chicken finger, pickle, bleu cheese crumbles, bacon, pepperoni, provolone, and in classic Buffalo style it is rimmed in kimmelweck.

6. Hofbrauhaus Buffalo

190 Scott St Buffalo NY 14204 / More Info

Hobrauhaus Buffalo’s Bloody Mary is no joke. Come hungry if you plan on ordering this because it is way more than just a drink. The “”Verdammte Mary” consists of a soft pretzel, sausage, bacon, cheese, tomato, olive, celery!

7. Cask + Cow

840 Center St Lewiston New York 14092 / More Info

Cask + Cow is pairing their Bloody Mary with the ultimate comfort food toppings. Upgrade a regular Bloody Mary for their “Super Bloody” which consists of both bacon and a cheeseburger slider for garnish.

8. Covey’s Cove

5855 E Main St, Olcott NY 14126 / More Info

Available on Sundays, the “Mega Mary” is garnished with a load of toppings including a burger and a bacon-wrapped shrimp.
