Buffalo Wing Trail

The Buffalo Wing Trail beckons when you visit Buffalo.

You can’t visit Buffalo without ordering Buffalo wings. Why? The Buffalo-style chicken wing was created here in 1964! The wings slathered in the sauce that you love so well were brought to life right here in our very own Buffalo, NY.
During your stay, you can stop at any of the 12 famous pubs in Buffalo that make up the “Buffalo Wing Trail”. Each pub has its own secret sauce or recipe that gives their “on the map” wings their magic.
Even the famous Jay Leno can be seen in the city chowing down on Buffalo wings on occasion. His stop at La Nova Pizzeria prompted the owners to create his favorite wing flavor and call it the Jay Leno wing!
You should definitely see what all the fuss is about. Whether you pick one of the wing spots at random or make your way down the entire wing trail, you’re going to discover your favorite spots and want to visit them each and every time you come back.
