More on this in a bit…



Some Kind Words:

  • “All of this food-centric activity is reflected to a larger audience through a robust online community of food bloggers and activists, who provide countless glimpses into the kitchens and eating lives of Western New York. There’s at least a dozen, but Donnie Burtless and Alli Suriani of BuffaloEats.org have set the standard, compiling a vast, detailed portrait of the local eating world, with reviews, photographs and more. Burtless has interviewed more than 50 chefs, critics, owners, purveyors and other denizens of the food world in “Eat it Up,” his chatty podcast, available on the site.” – Andrew Galarneau, The Buffalo News [2/10/13]
  • “Burtless and Suriani began their newbie foodie quest in Buffalo in early 2009, and now, through their tireless efforts, everything about the site—from the writing to the technical analysis of the food to the production values associated with the site’s accompanying podcast, Eat it Up!—has improved drastically. With its enormous backlog of content and commitment to trying new restaurants as soon as possible, Buffalo Eats has earned every bit of its position of authority as a Buffalo’s most prominent food blog, without sacrificing the completely unpretentious tone, sense of humor, and—above all—honesty that has made the site so popular.” – Buffalo Spree [7/2013]
  • “Stay in the know on the latest restaurant openings in town by following Buffalo Eats, a blog run by Donnie Burtless, whose ability to hit up the city’s ever-growing list of restaurants is impressive.” – Edna IshayikNew York Magazine [8/1/2014]

Some Not Kind Words:

  • “This is as good of a time as any to jump in and say that for years now the most common topic of conversation among people who a.) live in Buffalo and b.) have an Internet connection is that Buffalo Eats is the fucking worst. Have a good night!” – Christine K, Facebook [7/24/17]

    Hey, its Eatalo, Your blog is great, you’ve got quite a catolog!!
    Thank’s for your comment, I’m having a lot of fun writing and eating, maybe it will slow down for a bit when this baby comes (4 weeks or less!) but it is great to see other Buffalo food lovers giving real critiques about all the food we have to eat in this city!!

    I just tried Thai Orchid in Williamsville. I am not a fan of Thai (but admit I haven’t tried much). I loved it! Loved the atmosphere and the food was beyond delicious. Curious fact though, it is bring your own wine. They open it for you, put it in a wine bucket for you and pour it as well. I had the veggies stir fry with chicken and my dining buddies had the sea bass. We also had pot stickers and thai cups for the beginging. Highly recommend if you have not tried it already.

    In your article dated October , 2010 you said that Texas Roadhouse closed all of our locations down here. However, you must have been thinking about Roadhouse. Roadhouse went bankrupt. As a Texas Roadhouse manager we only opened our first location in NY in Tonawanda on Young St. in 2007. By posting are name your giving us a bad eye. Texas Roadhouse is not closed nor have we closed any locations. Please remove our name and replace it with Roadhouse as we dont know need to be associated with that Roadhouse. Also you may want to check your information before you post your information. Thanks

    Check out Miller’s Steak and Crab House on Clinton Street in West Seneca. Fair Priced food and great specials. Head chef is young and his food is great.
