Do you have a Pinterest Board full of my recipes?
How did the famous Buffalo Wings begin? The most popular answer seems to be the originated in 1964 in Buffalo, NY at The Anchor Bar, a family owned business. They were covered in a special sauce and served with a side of blue cheese and celery because that’s what was available.
On a road trip in 2016, we stopped in Buffalo and tried them out. Thumbs up on these wings.
