The bleu cheese burger is the best burger I have ever had and Ive been a chef for about 10 yrs now. I order two of them and can never eat them slowly due to their awesomeness. If you go I would be there earlier then 5pm they have a huge rush. Its small but it gives character their wings are awesome also. I go there all the time DO NOT CONFUSE THIS ONE FOR THE ONE IN ORCHARD PARK they are completely different

Pros: You have to have the bleu cheese burger. read details

Cons: The wait and cramped seating

.

Many will compare Duff's to the much heralded Anchor Bar when talking wings in Buffalo. Though Duff's doesn't feature all the flash that AB does, it's a great local spot that has good food (and better wings than at AB in my opinion) at reasonable prices.

Wings here are meaty and dripping with sauce. The "medium" sauce here may be equivalent to what is called "hot" elsewhere. The blue cheese is tangy and tasty, and is the perfect compiment to the hot and spicy wings.

Service is attentive and friendly. Pretty much what you'd expect from a casual dining spot in this area.

The Amherst location on Sheridan Dr is close to both UB campuses, so expect a lot of students and other locals. The noise level can be high, and the atmosphere is decidedly drab, but it all works to make for a great local hotspot.

Pros: Great flavor, very saucy, crispy

Cons: its all goood

Wings are very classic. Same as Anchor Bar for size. (small) Good value, a little 'extra' saucy. Very spicy, great value for the money. A no-frills place. Family friendly. Loud.

Cons: what's with the new ratings med = hot, blah, blah, blah

This place beats Anchor, LaNova, Papa Jakes, all because it is the wing joint in buffalo. Locals come here and for over 25 years I have never had a bad meal. Friendly, quick service and don't let the line scare you , you will get in in under a half hour, it is worth the wait.

Beer, Hot Wings, Fries with Gravy, Salad with nothing cute on it, and Bleu Cheese that is the best. Between here for wings and Kentucky Gregs for BBQ, the best 2 joints in all of WNY!!!! Meticulous nerds need not come

My family and I went to Duffs last month. I ordered BQ'd chicken fingers, they were disgusting! It was as if someone just poured an entire bottle of bad tasting BQ sauce on top of the fingers. I couldn't even eat them.
My husband didn't like the wings at all. Our daughter brought her college friend who never had buffalo wings before. But they both liked their wings. Not very reasonable either. Our bill came to over $50.00. This is not the first time we were there, we thought we would give it another try. At least now we know better.
I would not recommend this place.

I would never sugggest anyone to visit this dump. Can't understand why people rave about this place. Ordered a salad, it was disgusting, then the Wings arrived, they looked and tasted that they were kept in the deep fryer from the Grand Opening many years ago.

Thanks but no Thanks

Duffs is a Buffalo establishment, and in my opinion, the best wings in town. Sure, there are other great wings, but Duffs wings are big, juicy, relatively cheap, and the sauce...OH! Order 'em atomic and you're in for a treat. They have a great lunch special during the week that you can' beat. An the burgers are also some of the best in town! It's nice to have this in Amherst, but I can't help but think that an establishment like this should be in the heart of downtown. However, it's worth the trip.

Cons: If anything, space and location

I moved away from Buffalo 15 years ago and on my bi-yearly trips home to visit friends and family, Duffs is always on my list of places to eat. The wings are tasty, big, hot, greasy. Just how they should be. The fries are plenty and yummy too. Add it together with a pitcher of pop and you are golden.

Wings are great. Eating area isn't so nice, but the wings are GREAT. A hot, crispy wing (unbreaded) with a vinegar zing to it. Get them to-go.

Duffs chicken wings are great. I think as long as your careful in choosing the amount of heat ,the wings are some of the best in western New York.When people come to Buffalo , they have not experienced Buffalo chicken wings until they go to Duffs.

A lot of my friends enjoy going to Duffs, but the wings are small, not thoroughly cooked and smeared with hot sauce to the point that my entire face was practically numb for an hour after gorging down 20 wings. The only thing I can say is that the wings there are better than at Buffalo Wild Wings.

We have come to Duffs for over 25 years.It is very unassuming from the outside and even more so inside ,but the wings are the reason you come here.The wings and fries are very good the service is quick and friendly.this is not a fine dining establishment, the salads are a bland mix of very white lettuces. The rest of the menu is boring.
It is agood place to take kids because you can get large pitchers of drinks. This also aplies to beer and wine and they are very reasonably priced.If you haven't eaten here before you may not want to try anything hotter tha the medium wings as they are very hot.
Good wings,Good dollar value

Don't go here expecting candles and tablecloths (or even a clean floor), but do go here expecting to get the best wings anywhere. This is not a bar, this is not a "dining establishment" - Duffs has one purpose, and that is to serve the best wings ever. They do this amazingly well. As a transplant to Buffalo, I never really knew what good wings were, and I never knew what GREAT wings are until I went to Duffs. The wings are big, meaty, and cooked any way you want (I like extra crispy!). Bonus is the fantastic blue cheese and the french fries. LOVE hot, cripsy, skinny french fries. The chicken fingers are pretty good, too, but every thing else on the menu (except the beer) is marginal at best. I'm always amazed when the table next to me orders a side salad or a grilled cheese. Why bother?! This is the only leftovers I will eat. Way better than the Anchor Bar (which, I might add, is also a dump). Love, love, love Duffs! A must do for anyone visiting that craves wings.

Duff's was not what I expected. I do not rated it well at all. I have been to far too many wings bars and restaurants to recoomend this one at all. Actually I thought it was a dump.

Duff's seems to be a popular spot for wings in Buffalo. I have frequented the place a few times but do not see what the fuss is all about. The wings are at most mediocre. It is too saucy and not crispy enough (Although, I recently found out that a request can be made to correct the situation). The wing sauce is ok. Not remarkable. There are other places in Buffalo to get better wings. The decor... is.... how should I put this.... "interesting". It feels like the hacienda meets the 60's, with low ceilings. The staff, however, is able to cope with the large number of patrons this place gets. Would not recommend to serious wing eaters!!

Duff's seems to be a pretty popular place for wings, but I'm not a big fan of this place. I like my wings spicy, and unfortunately at Duff's more spice just means more hot sauce, which is not quite the same thing. What you get when you order extra hot wings is Buffalo wing soup - wings doused in too much hot sauce making them soggy after a while and also quite salty. Maybe for people that like their wings milder this place is a decent place to go, but frankly in my opinion REAL Buffalo wings need to be SPICY and Duff's is not the place to find such wings.

All the other reviews are correct, the wings are excellent and consistent. But Geebus is the hamburger terrible. Go here again and again for the wings, but leave the burger out. Uck.

I have traveled the world & most of the USA & found that the best hot wings are located at Duff's. I try to go there at least once a year since I live quite a ways away, but believe me, the wings are well worth the trip from anywhere. I also love their t-shirts, medium is hot & the hot are very hot.

Buffalo has countless places to get good wings, but these are the best. They are 100 times better than what is served at The Anchor Bar. Also - this place is incredibly consistent. I have been here dozens of times and have never once gotten anything less than the best wings I have ever had. Do not be mislead by anti-suburban Buffalonians who cringe at the idea of Amherst having the best wing joint - this is the best.

I have lived in a suburb of Buffalo my whole life. If you are visiting Buffalo, or if you live here and have not had Duffs wings, then you have never really had Buffalo Wings. They are the best you will ever have - gauranteed. I have had wings everywhere in the area. The second best wing place you will find in Buffalo is oddly Pizza Junction, but Duffs is the most flavorful, and hot, while keeping them crispy wings around.

The best wings in the world are in Buffalo and the best wings in Buffalo are at Duff's. Centered between the two UB campuses, the ambience is lacking, but the place is always full. The wings are big, meaty, saucy and hot. Order a reasonably priced combo with fries and beer and you'll have one of the best meals, although your cardiologist might cringe.

If you like your Wings on the spicy side, Duff's is the place to go. Since moving to Buffalo I have had many a different Wing, and have found that Duff's satisfies my craving. Not only do you get the Wings to your liking, but you get that large bowl of French Fries to help cool your mouth, when you get the Wings a little too hot.
