** Don't bother going here, not even if it's only for 10 minutes for take out, b/c you risk getting 5 minutes of blatantly rude service that will make you lose your appetite.** Placed my order for take-out and gave my name when asked. I automatically spelled my name for the employee like I usually do with any restaurant host/hostess when asked my name because I somehow had a memory lapse and forgot that I was not in a fine dining restaurant! The employee said "I guess I ought to have a sign saying I know how to spell!" loud enough so I could hear and so could her co-worker who laughed. When the order was ready my name got called by another worker, and the Joker/employee rudely said my name in a child-like manner mockingly. I said to the manager on-shift I 'd never go back and had to leave quickly before I started yelling.

Pros: Wings sometimes ok

Cons: Unbelievably rude service; wings sometimes old, cold and dry

I used have Buffalo Wild Wings ranked as my top notch, but not anymore. Buffalo Joe's has the best sauce! the atmosphere is what it is but the wings more than make up for it. Not recomend for a romantic date night but great group lunch/dinner with friends.

Pros: great wings price is good

My name is Joe and I am from Buffalo... This place couldn't be worse. How can you have a name like that and NOT SERVE ANY TYPE OF BLUE CHEESE????!!!!!! The wings themselves are mediocre at best.

It is insulting name and establishment for any chicken wing connoisseur.

Pros: good if you never ate chicken before

Cons: NO BLUE CHEESE, and if you ask for it they glare at you

Showed up ordered a double order spicy. The service was rude-the wings were tiny. Some of them didn't even have any meat. All around this place is awful. They used to have great wings but have since rested on their laurels. When they showed up at wingfest this year, they brought their dinky wings with them. I suggest putting this place on ban until they offer every past customer a free batch of new and improved wings, though I don't think they care to serve great wings anymore. Shelf for Buffalo Joes. If 0 stars were an option, that is what I would give. This place stinks.

Best chicken wings on the planet, period. This may sound silly, but they also have the best ranch dip I've ever had! They are fried to perfection and the three heat levels of sauce allow everyone to enjoy wings at their own tolerance level. They have many other things on their menu, but the only other thing I have tried is their waffle fries with chedder cheese. They are excellent as well. Must try this place and see for yourself. Beware, very addictive.

The sauce tastes like ketchup with a little hot sauce. It's very strange... And there's way too much sauce. It's like eating gobbly gook.

They're the smallest wings on earth! I took pictures of a wing next to a quarter: the quarter was wider. And it wasn't just this one wing, they were all that small. I posted them under the business pictures. How can a wing place find such small wings to serve? Are they aborted chickens, or chicks? Are they even chickens?

Their spicy wings aren't even hot... then they have "suicide" wings where they're not really any hotter--they just douse them in more sauce--AND ADD GIARDINARE. how disgusting!!! (it might be good drunk food or something, but don't call them buffalo wings)

THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE BLUE CHEESE!!! I suppose asking for carrots to go with celery (like you'd get in... Buffalo) would be totally out of the question if they're too cheap to even stock blue cheese! This place shouldn't be allowed to associate itself with wings OR Buffalo, let alone both.

The staff wasn't very friendly... I was trying to read the menu and got rushed into ordering. Once we sat down, we overheard a group of people arguing on the other side of the eating area... not just arguing, but standing up shouting in each other faces, ready to fight. the kind of thing where you debated if you should get up and leave, or get ready to dial 911. guess who it was? the staff.

The only redeeming thing about this place was the waffle fries... they were pretty darn good.

They weren't exactly cheap... An order of wings, waffle fries w/ cheese, and two drinks came out to be $17. I want my $17 back. Really. They were that bad.

It was one of those meals where you sat and debated if you wanted to finish, or if you would just abort and go elsewhere... we ended up eating more later I'm pretty sure.

I've had better wings at Applebee's. If you think the wings here are the best ever, you're really missing out.

Pros: Waffle fries

Cons: Nasty small wings with bad ketchupy sauce, not even spicey, no blue cheese, questionable employees.

I've been going to Buffalo Joes since high school, and will randomly have cravings for their mouthwatering wings. After trying them once, I fell in love, and order them each time I go in. Other than the wings, I have only tried their fries, which are decent. Although I've never tried any of the other food, friends claim that it's pretty good.

Dining in or carrying out, the service is pretty fast, but restaurant itself is not very impressive. There is a dining room in the back, with a good number of booths, and you can also sit at the counter at the front of the restaurant. Price is reasonable, servings pretty good - you get about 13 wings in one single serving.

Depending on what day and time you go, parking in the neighborhood can be difficult. There is a lot to do in the area, including other restaurants, cafes, stores, and a movie theater.

Buff' Joe's is the best wing place in the city, hands down. Whether you like spicy, mild, or anything in between, this is the place for you.

Not necessarily "World Class", but a definite 5 stars. I've been completely head over heels in love with Buffalo Joe's buffalo wings ever since I've first tried them. They're the most delicious wings in the Chicago land! Buffalo Joe's is known for their extra spicy sauces - the most spiciest being "Suicide" (my favorite), though the sauce was toned down quite a bit due to complaints. For a decent price, you get an entire plate of wings that will knock you out of your mind. My youth group will, very regularly, drive half an hour over the next city for their buffalo wings - the guys love the stuff!
The only thing to watch out for is, if you ever dine at this specific location, then avoid sitting by the kitchen doors. The smell of raw chicken can be quite overpowering.

PROS: Amazing Buffalo Wings
CONS: The seats by the kitchen

Buffalo Joe's easily has the best wings in the Chicagoland area. The only strike against them is they serve their wings with ranch dressing (due to popular demand) as opposed to the more traditional blue cheese dressing.

These wings are made to order, right in front of you, and come in three levels of hotness: mild, spicy, and suicide. I recommend the spicy myself. While suicide wings are good, I feel the jalapeno overpowers the flavor of the sauce.

These wings are fresh, hot, and crispy, not like the crap they serve at most places (Buffalo Wild Wings, I'm looking at you.) The vinegary smell is almost asphixiating. This is what a wing should be.

It's definitely worth the 30 minute drive to Buff Joe's. Single order of suicide, cheddar chip and a gutbuster RC makes my day!
