    NIAGARA FALLS HELP.

    I have a couple of friends staying in NF for a night in a couple of weeks. Cave of the winds, Maid of the mist, goat island... I have been telling them and making wings for them for over 2 decades... I tell them that the wings in Buffalo are the size of my forearm... compared to the sparrow wings offered up down here in south Florida.

    Dennis definitely wants wings. I hear a Duff's opened up right near the hotel at NF BLVD and Military.

    They are staying at NF BLVD and the 190


    I know from the pictures it's a modern chainy looking store front plaza kinda place. Is there anything nearby that might have a little more "rusticy urban - blighty flavor" or anything downtown NF that might be good?

    Perhaps a place that also serves a fish fry with the haddock as big as an infant?

    I mentioned they need to get a steak and cheese sub or even a cheeseburger sub since there is nothing close to either down here.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    Perhaps a tavern that was built prior to the invention of drywall and stucco with a few nearly dead alcoholics at the bar (maybe one that goes by the name "sharky" or Smitty. Each looks to be about 78 years old but are actually 54-55))... Like the Big Tree Inn!!!.. A place that many would call a hole but has an inviting smell about it that is comforting to WNYers...

    How far are they willing to travel for the rustic bar and fish fry?

    If they are doing nothing and have time, there are a million options

    I don't know much about wings in the Falls, but if you really want to impress them, take them to Gabriel's Gate on Allen Street in Buffalo. Best and biggest wings in WNY, and a seriously funky, cool, one of a kind tavern atmosphere. It's as genuine as it gets. Well worth the 15-20 minute drive from the Falls.

    Actually as it turns out they are staying at a hotel near UB. The Millersport Maple area so there are a million places. Naturally Duffs for wings. I guess they could ask at the hotel where a good fish fry can be found but being near the NF Blvd, Sheridan Dr. area gives them options. They could stop at Violas coming back from the falls for a steak and cheeser.

    I'm not going. Thus the thread. I can find good eats if I was there.

    Re: NIAGARA FALLS HELP.

    I know exaclty where they are.


    Have them go to Brunners for a fish fry.

    Main, near Eggert. Very good fish. And it's totally a "hometown" kind of bar.

    One warning - they are cash only.

    Yet in other, unrelated news, The Fixx are back touring and Donald Trump's run has spurred the return of Bloom County.

    Steak and cheese sub in NF? Don't bother. If you want something you can't get anywhere else, chicken finger sub is the way to go. There was a place near Military Rd and NF Blvd that we used to order from in college but I can't recall the name.
