While Duff’s offers a variety of pub fare to satisfy diverse palates, the small upstate New York-based restaurant chain is Mecca for Buffalo wing lovers. As you’d imagine, these aren’t just any wings. We’re talking the kind of fiery drums and flats we all dream about—perfectly crisp and coated with tangy, mouth-flaming sauce on the outside and impossibly moist, juicy, and, fall-off-the-bone-tender on the inside. More than 43 years after serving their first batch, Duff’s still sets the standard for what a true Buffalo chicken wing should taste like—and remains unsurpassed in their ability to deliver.

About The Food

President Obama and endless others have headed to Duff’s for one simple reason: downright amazing wings. Duff’s cooks their 100% grade-A drums and flats in pure vegetable oil, which they replace every two days. The final secret is in the sauce, which ranges from Mild (think kind of hot) to Hot (think WAY hot)! While all taunt with requisite heat, their complex flavors emphasize there’s experience and skill mixed in there, too. Bonus: Duff’s wings come with a side of founder Louise’s exceptional homemade bleu cheese dipping sauce and celery sticks.

Meet The Owner

Louise Duffney opened Duff’s as a local tavern at the corner of Sheridan and Millersport just north of Buffalo, in Amherst, New York, in 1946. It became the source for the world’s best chicken wings in 1969 when she and her son Ronnie began offering them. In 1985, when the family name and Buffalo wings had become synonymous, they changed their name to Duff’s Famous Wings. Today Duff’s is still in the family: Ronnie Duff (pictured) runs the business with operating partners Kirk and Jeff Feather. Together, they manage a number of locations in New York and Canada.
