I'm from upstate NY near Buffalo. Living in Mass it's hard to find really good wings. In NY, Duffs or Anchor bar have the best anywhere. Buffs wings are excellent! If you like crispy wings cooked just right, you found the best in Boston. Several sauces, but if you like spicy, Garlic Parm Sarachia is great. Also a good selection... More

Two of us met after work for food and drinks that actually were quite good, and was planning to come back with my partner as the chicken wings were good. However 5 minutes after getting the check and paying were told in no uncertain terms that we needed to get out - there were other people waiting (3 of them... More

Whenever we can we get to Buff's! Honey hot tenders and mild wings are the best. And the beer is always cold. Get there early as seating is limited. Don't try getting a seat for Super Bowl but take out is a specialty. Oh and cash only!

I had not been to Buff's Pub in over 20 years. I happened to be in the neighborhood, so I forced my whole party to go there for wings. My memory was that they had some of the best wings in the country. So we ordered 20 wings with BBQ and Buffalo sauce on the side. The pub is still... More

Great Burgers & Wings. Very energetic bar area. Fun atmosphere but don't get me wrong, this place is a fun dive at best. I've never had a bad meal. Nothing fancy just great grub and good drinks. It's about a half a block from the Crowne Plaza if you happen to be there on business. Definitely give it a try.... More

Super meaty, Not too crispy, Buffalo sauce HOT but enjoyable and not melt you face off. A lot of places may claim to have the best wings but I would put Buffs a second to none! The bar / restaurant itself is pretty small so you may have to wait but it will be worth it. Also please note that... More

Our go to place for wings! Delicious. Several flavored to choose from. They do not disappoint. Menu has a good selection of salads, sandwiches and other entrees to choose from. Beer selection is top notch. Cash only. You may have to wait for a table at night but it is so worth the wait!

My flight back home was cancelled so I ventured across the street form my hotel (Crown Plaza Newton) and met some friends. The waitress was total Boston, fun smart and engaging. Good drinks, nothing rediculous as far as price. And then we ATE. Food was amazing. Wings were off the charts, very large, cooked right, and had incredible sauces. This... More

Flat out best wings I've ever had in Boston. I never had anything other than the wings but that's al you need. There is a great atmosphere too.

I stopped by after work while in town. The waitress was very friendly and recommended the wings or burgers. I opted for the wings with "hot honey" sauce and 1/2 order of fries/onion ring order which was the perfect combination! The food was great. The onion rings were really, really good. The servings were large and the prices were cheap.... More
