Best Gateway Grub

Harry Buffalo

Harry Buffalo hits a home run with its laid-back vibe, wide brew selection, and a big menu of breaded, fried, and barbecued grub. The illustrated menu is crammed with surprisingly well-executed burgers, wings, wraps, pizza, quesadillas, salads, and entrées like barbecued ribs, bison steak, and even a perch and pierogi dinner. The beer list includes eight choices on draft, 24 by the bottle. And huge removable windows give the barroom an open, breezy charm that belies its urban location. Add a full complement of sports-locked TVs and the usual classic rock playing not too loudly in the background, and Harry Buffalo is the perfect pre- or post-ballgame destination.
