Some people say it sucks, I disagree. Its good. Its not great, but for what it is its delicious. The "original" wing. You could eat elsewhere, but how often can you say you've eaten where it was invented.

We will be traveling through this summer and would like to visit the home of the original Buffalo wings. However, we will be in a motorhome (27ft). On the map, the location looks pretty urban. Is there any place to park oversized vehicles nearby?

you would probably not be able to park in adjacent lot, but if you're willing to walk a block or so, there are other parking opportunities.
Stopping there on way home to Pgh., on a Thursday, how is parking? How far from Peace Bridge?
