Food Porn: JP Bullfeathers

I love the Elmwood area of Buffalo, NY.  Walking down the streets makes me relive my youth and I still think that it’s the one area I would kill to live in.  However, JP Bullfeather’s for me has always gotten lost in the shuffle.  It’s a restaurant that has never caught my attention, and the bar has never stood out for me.

If I wanted beer, I would go to Coles (maybe my favorite “beer bar” of all time).  If I wanted fast food I would go to Jim’s Steak Out or a good cheap Greek meal, Pano’s.  Hell I would even rather go to Mr Goodbar now that they have included a huge draft selection and beer club, so to say JP Bullfeather’s isn’t on my radar is an understatement.

However, every Taste of Buffalo I find myself trying out their chicken fingers and the associated 4 different sauces.  I don’t know why, I’m like an Alzheimer’s patient but I just flock to it, year after year.

Regardless, the other night Alli and I literally could not think of a place to go to, as we drove down Elmwood to try and jump start our brains we looked at JP’s and thought “Why Not?”

The first thing I noticed was this place is huge.  We walked almost a block to the back of the restaurant where we were seated in a huge room.  The only problem I could say is the service was a little off for the night, I don’t mind waiting a bit.  But there is that fine line of waiting and service forgetting about you.  Alli decided to go for the Chicken Fingers and try their Jack Daniels Glaze.

It was delicious, and had a hint of smokey flavor to it.  For Chicken Fingers, it was awesome.  For me, I was in the mood for a burger, nothing extravagant.  Just a good old burger, so I went with the JP’s Buffalo Burger which has blue cheese, hot peppers,and the usual lettuce and tomato.

The beer selection was decent, but it was fairly expensive.  For a Magic Hat Circus Boy and a Sam Adam’s White Ale (possibly their most underated beer), it was $10.  Combined with our meal and an appetizer (you guessed it Loaded Potato Skins) was about $45.

It was a good meal, but there really was nothing that stood out besides the wonderful sauce on Alli’s Chicken Fingers.  If you want a good, safe meal.  Then hit up JP bullfeathers, but if you want anything else for a good authentic “out there” Elmwood experience, you’re choices are endless.
