Ask WNYers for the best wings a/o weck in WNY, and for some reason this cash-only, 20+ seat place makes the short list -- and I've no idea why. The waits for seats and then for the food is unreasonably long. The overall menu is sparse in offerings. The wings are OK, as was the weck -- as least they know what their doing with these two -- but neither were "short-list worthy". And to top it off -- no cards, only cash. I've been here twice -- 1st to experience, the 2nd to confirm: there are better wing-n-weck experiences and values around WNY.

The wings and the Beef on Weck are great but Almost all of the time you have to wait on average 1/2 hour.

First, let's start with what you should know before you arrive. They don't take credit cards. You can't get a Moscow Mule there. No explanation. Now, once you get there you should try the beef on weck and their chicken wings. They also feature outdoor seating in good weather.

I was told that this has to be one of your stops if you are going to be in the East Aurora area. They were right. Serves some traditional Buffalo wings and I think the lost specialty here is the roast beef sandwich. If you go, make sure to get the roast beef. The wings are good buy typical. The beef is special.

We were visiting friends who live in Buffalo and they took us out to Bar Bill Tavern. It was worth the drive. We were a like skeptical walking in since it is a small place and did not think they'd be able to seat 7 of us without waiting a long time. But the wait was a reasonable 15 minutes.

Each of us got a combination of 10 wings and mini-beef on weck, both were outstanding and it was the perfect amount of food. (I don't see the mini\small on the menu but it was an option the day we were there).

One guy was thinking about going for the extra hot wings but the waitress talked him out of it. It was the right call. The hot have good flavor and enough heat. I usually go for hot wings and these had just a little extra kick to them but not overwhelming and still maintained good flavor.

The beef for Beef on Weck is carved right behind the bar. The meat was very tender and roll was fresh. We were given au jus but most of us did not use it.

I don't always have car when visiting Buffalo otherwise this would be on a must-stop list.
