Food Porn: King’s Court

I have been trying to find some new lunch locations lately; I think I have exhausted all of my options on Allen.  And the number of restaurants on Delaware that I haven’t tried is even starting to decrease slowly.  So when my co worker Matt and I tried to figure out a new restaurant to eat at (that wasn’t too exotic) I thought of King’s Court.

While I was driving into the City of Buffalo every , my recent move to Allentown, I would always pass by King’s Court and try to tell myself to “remember this place for lunch”.  I honestly have no real reason why I wanted to try it, I’ve only heard that its a great karaoke bar and I remember having a beer there once after a Thursday in the Square.  But maybe if you drive past something enough times it will just inevitably stick in your brain.

Walking inside I realized that I remembered very little about this place, the dining room (as seen above) totally surprised me by how nice it was.  The table settings, the filled water glasses, and our courteous and attentive server were all nice surprises.  As for the food options, I knew what to expect thanks to the internet, but the menu was very well priced.  You could easily get a lovely lunch for under 7 dollars and for Matt and myself the grand total (after tax) was just $18.  By far this is one of the cheapest lunches I’ve had in a while, at least one where I actually sat down and ate and didn’t order items by a number.

Matt ordered himself the cheeseburger and a basket of fries, both of which he thought were fantastic.  The burger was juicy and the fries were actually really good.

After looking over the menu, I decided to try out one of their Panini’s and ordered their Cobb Salad Panini (see above), which was basically Turkey, Bacon, Bleu Cheese, and Tomatoes.  While the ingredients were simple, the execution was great.  Instead of some pre-sliced deli meat turkey, these were some thick slices cut right off a whole cooked breast.  This may surprise some of you, but I really am not the biggest bacon fan and I was happy that they didn’t “over load” this sandwich with it.  The same could be said for the Tomato, except that I would have preferred maybe an extra slice or two.  The blue cheese had a strong presence, but I’m a big fan of that and when melted over meat and tomato, the sandwich really reaches an entirely new level of awesome.

As awesome as the Panini was, what really stole both Matt’s heart and mine was their home made Ribbon-style Potato Chips (see above).   I thought that type of food was reserved for the Erie County Fair.  They were fantastic and generously covered in salt and seasoning, I could have ordered and entire meal of just their chips.

I’ve driven by King’s Court over and over and never once thought it would have been a great lunch location, but I still am finding out there are still many surprises in Buffalo.  So if you work downtown and you’d like to try a new lunch location, I can now highly recommend King’s Court as a great little spot with really reasonable prices.

  1. i can vouch for king’s court. i reserved a lunch party in october last month for work. we ate in the upstairs room and had it by ourselves. there was about 20 of us from work in there. in short, everyone said their food was great and even more impressed is when i personally thanked the chef/owner sam in the kitchen and found out it was just him and another person who cooked for all of us.
