When we visited Buffalo to see the Albright Knox Art Gallery we figured our trip to Buffalo wouldn’t be complete without sampling some authentic buffalo wings. After some extensive research pre-trip we had already crossed Duff’s and Anchor bar off the list. Instead we headed to Gabriel’s Gate in Allentown to try their beer, wings and beef on weck.
It had a cozy warm interior that was filled with regulars, cheap pints ($3.75!) & real good wings
We split 2 orders of wings; one cajun, and the other bbq, as well as a beef on weck. The wings were crispy, not greasy, with lots of meaty goodness.
This was my very first beef on weck, which is apparently a classic Buffalo culinary delicacy. Sliced beef on a soft doughy bun that’s topped with caraway seeds, and massive flakes of salt, served with a nice side of spicy horseradish. Gabriel’s Gate did an OK job (I thought the beef was over cooked). On my next Buffalo visit I want to try the weck at Schwabl’s.
