BW's Smokin' Barrels Barbecue
5007 Lake Avenue
Blasdell, NY 14219
One of our favorite places to go for authentic BBQ is BW's in Blasdell, NY. The baby back ribs practically fall off the bone and have such a sweet barbecue flavor to them.
1753 Walden Avenue
Cheektowaga, NY 14225
Famous Dave's is a national chain with a location right here in Cheektowaga. Dave's has an extensive menu that is sure to please everyone from ribs, sandwiches, burgers, wings, pork and more. Our personal favorite is the Texas Beef Brisket.
Tony Rome's - The Place For Ribs
1537 Union Road
West Seneca, NY 14224
Tony Rome's has been a BBQ staple since 1989. The sauce used on their ribs is a secret family recipe that only few people are privy to. Tony's also has great pasta dishes and some of the best chicken wings in the area. If you're a Frank Sinatra fan you'll love the Sinatra themed dining room.
R&R BBQ Truck
Various locations around Buffalo
Working downtown can have its challenges when trying to find something good, but cheap for lunch. Over the past several months we've been patronizing the R&R BBQ Truck that is occasionally parked at Main and Huron Streets in Buffalo. If you ever come across their bright red and yellow truck stop by and pick up a BBQ Beef Brisket sandwich ($4.50). It's topped with coleslaw and is absolutely delicious.
99 Court Street
Buffalonians may not have heard of Dinosaur Bar-B-Que but if you're ever in Rochester and looking for a great place to eat you should check them out. The BBQ entrees are delicious and the sides are all homemade. I personally know people who have driven from Pittsburgh to Rochester just to eat here.
