Even though Buffalo Wings were invented on a Friday night in 1964 at a little bar called the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY, Old Town Bar in New York City has perfected the delicious chicken dish.
Both are smothered in finger-licking, spicy, buttery, vinegary hot sauce that leaves your lips burning and your taste buds sparkling. However, Old Town’s wings relies solely on the deep-fryer to get the wings to crispy, juicy perfection, while the anchor bar definitely adds some starch – possibly flour – that makes the wings slightly heavier and dryer.
Regardless of who has the best wings, Buffalo has some amazing Italian food. the next time you are upstate, or visiting Niagra Falls, make sure to check out Marco’s on Niagra street.
