Anchor Bar (Buffalo, N.Y.)

It’s only fair to give the honor of the best wings in America to the establishment that invented the wing. Anchor Bar’s web site describes just how this American delicacy came to be:

“On a Friday night in 1964, Dominic Bellissimo was tending bar at the now famous Anchor Bar Restaurant in Buffalo, N.Y. Late that evening, a group of Dominic's friends arrived at the bar with ravenous appetites. Dominic asked his mother, Teressa, to prepare something for his friends to eat. They looked like chicken wings, a part of the chicken that usually went into the stock pot for soup. Teressa had deep-fried the wings and flavored them with a secret sauce.The wings were an instant hit and it didn't take long for people to flock to the bar to experience this new taste sensation. From that evening on, Buffalo Wings became a regular part of the menu at the Anchor Bar.”

  • I love them too, I make some very good wings too. I've had a number of people try to convince me to open a restaurant and sell some of my cooking...LOL Some of the the people I work with have paid me and others offered to pay me to bring them some of my wings and other foods...

    I may make some wings soon and take them them to work. I will also make a lemon meringue pie from scratch. for one of my co-workers (paying customer). Some of the older women told me to be careful cooking because i will have all of these young girls in love with me....LOL
