Pi Craft

Pi-Craft has only been open for a couple weeks but it didn’t take long for people to recommend that I visit. I didn’t know much about the restaurant but hoped it was similar to Crust’s version of fast casual pizza with customizable toppings. So when my Dad wanted to grab lunch with my brother and...

Peking Quick One

Peking Quick One is a hidden gem in every sense of the word. The Tonawanda restaurant is in an unassuming strip plaza located on a side street and looks like every other low key neighbor Chinese restaurant that specializes in Sweet and Sour Chicken. Unless you knew that the restaurant had a separate ‘homestyle’ menu...

Smoke On The Water

The buzz around Smoke On The Water started almost a year ago. I first heard about it when I read about a Dinner with Danger meal that would be a sneak peak into the menu at the new restaurant from Kevin and JJ Richert, the brothers behind the excellent Kenmore restaurant Torches. I’ve had the...

Jolly Jug

I absolutely love dive bars and the Jolly Jug in Amherst/Tonawanda is a true irony-free dive bar.  Located on Niagara Falls Boulevard and consisting almost solely of regulars, the Jolly Jug has everything you’d expect from a true neighborhood bar.  They have absolutely no taps, their entire beer selection are in bottles with no craft...

Old Man River

With summer time finally here, Alli and I are going to try and visit more of Buffalo’s great outdoor, casual eateries.  We’ll be looking for those restaurants where you’ll see a lot of families, people lined up at a window placing their orders, ice cream cones and generally a wonderful smell of fried foods and...

2309 Eggert Rd

For more information about our Mighty Adventures, check out our page that talks about the goal behind these trips and how far we’ve gotten. Like I mentioned in our previous Mighty Adventure, Tom and I managed to visit 2 Mighty Tacos in the same day.  The second location we visited that day was Tonawanda’s Eggert Rd...

Jasmine Thai Restaurant

In a couple months I could be looking back at this meal as a critical turning point in out lives; this may have been the moment where Alli and I started loving spicy food.  We’ve never hated spicy food but we’ve never had a craving for it either.  After our meal at Jasmine, with both...

Buffalo Roadhouse Grill

A couple years ago Roadhouse closed down a bunch of their franchises, which included all of their Buffalo locations.  In the years that followed a strong following of their fans and former employees all lobbied for their return.  It took the former manager 8 months to get together the needed resources to reopen the restaurant...

A Touch of Italy

I have to admit when looking over our restaurant list, we have a several big gaps when it comes to certain towns.  The greater Tonawanda are would be one of those gaps.  For a couple of years my Dad lived in Tonawanda but we never really ate there; we visited Mississippi Mudds occasionally but that...

Mississippi Mudds

The last time I ate at Mississippi Mudds was over 7 years ago and my memories are incredibly vague.  I remembered that it was a basic hamburger/hot dog stand that also served  ice cream and it was located right on the Niagara River.  I remember a dining area that was on the “roof” and a...

DiBella’s Old Fashioned Submarines

For a long, long time now I have been told that I need to try DiBella’s.  In fact most people I’ve talked to have always made some “yum” noise immediately after I mentioned the name.  So while I had an idea of exactly what their subs were going to taste like, I still really wanted...

Saigon Bangkok

I am coming to the realization that I love Thai and/or Vietnamese food. I’ve watched the No Reservation shows, I have heard the wonderful stories from my friend Mike and I had my Saigon Cafe experience.  After all of that, I am falling in love with this type of food. One of their most popular...
