Wing Review: Hat Trix Sports Bar

August 1, 2021By Patrick Moran

Hat Trix is located at 4923 Southwestern Blvd in Hamburg, merely a forty second drive from my physical office yet I’ve never actually been there before.  I decided to change that, ironically on National Chicken Wing Day.  A buddy of mine said she was going there and that they had a 50-cent wing special going … Read More

Wing Review: Imperial Pizza

July 15, 2021By Patrick Moran

Imperial Pizza is the gospel when it comes to pizza and wings for most people in South Buffalo.  Seriously, it’s nearly sacrilegious to speak negatively of it in that part of town and trust me, I’d know. I’m not a fan of their pizza. I’ve considered it quite bland and comparatively overpriced. I’ve gotten into … Read More

December 24, 2019By Patrick Moran

Brunner’s Tavern, located on Main Street in Buffalo/Amherst was one of the more requested places I try that I haven’t been to yet.  They’re not specifically known for wings (more on that below) but enough people have praised them to get me intrigued enough to give them a whirl.  The bar and atmosphere were certainly … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Potter’s Field

August 18, 2019By Patrick Moran

I’m not sure if Potter’s Field is actually located in West Seneca or South Buffalo. What I do know is I’ve been there probably a dozen times to enjoy several alcohol refreshments, especially annually around St. Patrick’s time.  What I’ve never done is try their wings, or if I have I was blacked out and … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Wingnutz

August 14, 2019By Patrick Moran

Be patient, wing fans because there’s a lot to unpack with this review than any other. Of all the wing joints in Western New York I’ve tried and with this posting we’re closing in on 60, Wingnutz in Kenmore presents the undisputed biggest conundrum yet. It’s located literally inside the Knights of Columbus and is … Read More
