Wow! Those wings look awful. Hey Ellen, I think Anchor Bar should be ashamed of themselves for putting out a product like that.
AGREED !! And I had to pay $13.00 for the privelege of having them!
(I nibbled on a few , and the rest went in the trash…)
Before I went on the Buffalo-Rochester bus tour last September, I asked my coworker’s wife who grew up in Orchard Park (and is also a big fan of Eckle’s) her thoughts on the Anchor Bar. When I mentioned the place the first words out of her mouth were “Tourist Trap“. I asked if it was just “touristy” versus being a flat out “Tourist Trap” she re-affirmed her previous response. She say that the locals go there to drink- and apparently they do have Italian Food there, however whenever someone comes in and orders wings, it certifies that they’re from out of town (mostly unassuming college kids). I wasn’t crazy about the wings the last couple of times I went there.
I took a fun “wing trip” to Buffalo , about 5 years or so ago… I made one of my 1st posts on Roadfood to ask about good Buffalo eats, and got such a warm response (I was hooked after that!)
I really enjoyed my wings at Anchor Bar, (as well as Duff’s.. ) JMO……..
But, of course, I would’nt be surprised if they’ve got downhill since then…
The wings I received at the Food Fest looked like the kind that linger all afternoon at the Hot Foods bar in the supermarket!!!
And like I said, I threw most of them in the TRASH……which was EASY cuz the trash can was right there!
EATING MY WINGS OVER THE TRASH CAN due to lack of tables and chairs inside the concourse.. ( all of us were ordered inside cuz of lightning for 1/2 hour or so)
ANCHOR BAR WINGS $13.00….(ouch)
This is how the Fest scene looked for the first 3 hours, before the rains came!
