The good folks on the WBLK Facebook page say that you need to try these Puerto Rican Buffalo restaurants at least once. As we get ready for the Puerto Rican and Hispanic Day Parade in Buffalo, which is taking place on Saturday, August 28, 2021, I figured we should get some suggestions for amazing spots to check out.
Here are the three Puerto Rican restaurants in Buffalo that you need to try at least once:

Get Ready For a Celebration of Culture at the Puerto Rican Day Parade
You and the fam are invited to attend the 2021 Puerto Rican and Hispanic Day Parade in Buffalo. It will take place this Saturday. The parade will begin at noon, with a flag-raising ceremony happening at 11 am in Niagara Square. The parade will also kick off from Niagara Square in downtown Buffalo. It will be free and open to all Buffalonians. Unfortunately, there won't be a celebration in LaSalle Park after the parade. The current president of the association, Charles F. Torres, said that the committee just didn't have enough time to plan that part of it, since the relaxation of COVID-19 regulations was only recently announced in June. There is good news though! There will be a block party following the parade. It will be held on Niagara Street, between Hudson Street and Pennsylvania Ave.
The Puerto Rican and Hispanic Day Parade Association of WNY, which sponsors the annual event, says that its a celebration of culture,
The primary purpose of the Puerto Rican and Hispanic Day Parade of Western New York Association, Inc., is to host a parade inclusive of all people and communities. The parade will empower the community, and in particular our youth, by promoting civic pride, celebrating the history of Puerto Rico and Hispanics, and increasing awareness of Latin America's diverse cultural heritage.
