Know of any good restaurants off the beaten path? Share 'em, so that others may know. 

 

 

Here's one:

 

Shy's Steak House 

 

690 Fillmore Ave.

 

 

Best damn steak hoagie I have ever had.

My old neighborhood, Broadway-Fillmore. That building used to be a bank back in my day. I'll have to check it out next time I'm home.

If you're a fan of Mediterranean food, check out Byblos in Amherst, NY.
 
Amazing food.


Byblos is no more, closed up late last year.

The Griffon Pub on Military Road in the Falls is terrific. Best poutine I've had outside of Canada.

Son of a bitch...I wondered how they stayed open that long

 

Oh well; guess I'll have to get my Mediterranean fix from Zoe's on Transit.

Still looks like a bank inside interestingly. The order counter is the tellers window. Very unique vibe there, they even play bootleg movies for you to watch while they make the subs :lol:

Although not off the beaten path by any means since it's located on Transit but a restaurant that I think is awesome in WNY that I NEVER hear anybody else ever talk about is Chester's...a Cajun/New Orleans style restaurant which holds a unique place in the WNY restaurant scene.

I've been there and was pleasantly surprised. In particular their Cajun dishes.

The Grange Community Kitchen on Main St. in Hamburg was terrific. Recently opened within past year or so, by the chef from Elm Street Bakery. The building that used to be Tina's for those from the Southtowns. Worth the trip to Hamburg if you don't live nearby.

Same here, and I agree... can actually order chipped beef there, it's pretty good.

Lived in FL a long time, but I think I had my first Wawa experience in Orlando last month (for NCAA tourney :) ). VERY impressed. They were so upset they had run out of corkscrews they fell all over themselves apologizing (in a lousy neighborhood). I didn't think there was a chance they'd have one, but the Uber driver said give it a shot. More than I expected, especially in that area.

Bar Bill Tavern in East Aurora.... Best wings and Beef..... ever..

I live in Rochester. Season tickets since 1980. Yeah I'm getting old. Stopped here once on the way home from a game. Not sure about the beef, but they were the best wings I've ever had. And I've had a lot of wings. If I ever stop here again I'll have to try the beef.

Don't get the corkscrew angle... been to the local Wawa hundreds of times and wouldn't even know where to look for one there.

I'm pretty sure it was a Wawa's (but could be wrong) and it was almost a market place inside with a wine selection. I had my wine at the hotel on ice, but no opener. I asked, and they apologized for running out.


If you sell a bunch of wine (especially in a resort town), selling a method to get at it makes sense.

Gotcha. Odds are it wasn't a Wawa... they make their stores all the same and don't have much in the way of a wine selection at all. Hope you got it opened though.

Laugh all you want, but I took my dad to Cracker Barrell last week for his 67th bday and it was great. Went there on Wednesday before church let out. Food was great, service was great and the price was great.


Cracker Barrel is like my favorite restaurant. You seriously can't beat the price or the home cooking. I rarely get to go unless we are on the highway somewhere.
