“You don’t say Buffalo wings in Buffalo”

It’s just wings.

Anyone could tell you that Buffalo is known for its wings, with the famous wing spots being those of Anchor Bar or Duff’s. While these places make the tourist guide destinations, every local to Buffalo has their special go-to spot for their favorite wings.

A big question that often comes up in sports interviews with anyone that has played in our city is “What is your go-to wing spot?”


As a guest on the Pardon My Take Podcast, former Buffalo quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick was asked this very question (1:16:35).

His answer: “Dandelions is the one I went to with the linemen all the time.” He later goes on to say that when he first arrived in Buffalo he ordered wings with ranch and immediately found out, if you’re in Buffalo, IT IS BLUE CHEESE! 😂

Located in Williamsville, Dandelions is typically known for their fish fry, brick oven pizza and their steak & dandelion sandwich, but like Fitzpatrick says, “anywhere you go you can order wings, it doesn’t matter what type of restaurant it is.”

If you haven’t had Dandelions’ wings before, now’s the time to give them a try.
