Summer is still going strong and there’s plenty of time left to enjoy good barbecue! 

There’s also a great premier event this weekend at the Eastern Hills Mall parking lot you don’t want to miss! The Taste of Barbecue Nationals! It runs from 11am to 7pm and it’s free! I hope to see you and your family there!

Here are my ‘go to’ places when I’m really craving barbecue.


BW’s Smokin’ Barrels Barbecue

5007 Lake Avenue
Blasdell, NY 14219

One of my favorite places to go for authentic BBQ is BW’s in Blasdell, NY. The baby back ribs practically fall off the bone and have such a sweet barbecue flavor to them.


Famous Dave’s

Cheektowaga, NY 14225

Famous Dave’s is a national chain with a location right here in Cheektowaga. Dave’s has an extensive menu that is sure to please everyone from ribs, sandwiches, burgers, wings, pork and more. My personal favorite is the Texas Beef Brisket.

West Seneca, NY 14224

Tony Rome’s has been a BBQ staple since 1989. The sauce used on their ribs is a secret family recipe that only few people are privy to. Tony’s also has great pasta dishes and some of the best chicken wings in the area. If you’re a Frank Sinatra fan you’ll love the Sinatra themed dining room.


R&R BBQ Truck

Working downtown can have its challenges when trying to find something good, but cheap for lunch. Over the past several months I’ve been patronizing the R&R BBQ Truck that is occasionally parked at Main and Huron Streets in Buffalo. If you ever come across their bright red and yellow truck stop by and pick up a BBQ Beef Brisket sandwich ($4.50). It’s topped with coleslaw and is absolutely delicious.


Dinosaur Bar-B-Que

99 Court Street
Rochester, NY

Buffalonians may not have heard of Dinosaur Bar-B-Que but if you’re ever in Rochester and looking for a great place to eat you should check them out. The BBQ entrees are delicious and the sides are all homemade. I personally know people who have driven from Pittsburgh to Rochester just to eat here.
