Here in western New York, we have a lot of great local restaurants and bars that serve the best of the best when it comes to cuisine. Buffalo is not exactly the national chain restaurant kind of town – just ask Pizza Hut and Krispy Kreme.
However, it’s always cool when chain restaurants come here and open up in western New York.
The most famous recent example of this is when Chick-fil-A opened on Walden Avenue in Cheektowaga a few years ago, and was soon followed by another spot on the corner of Transit and Losson Road in front of Wegmans in Cheektowaga.
Get ready for another restaurant chain coming soon to the northern cities, and it’s one of the fastest growing chains in America.
Buffalo Business First reports that BB.Q Chicken is opening a location in Amherst, NY. It will be on the 1400 Millersport Highway, inside the Triad Apartment building.
BB.Q Chicken was founded in the mid-90s and has over 4,100 locations worldwide, with over 100 current locations under development here in the United States. They serve Korean barbecue and many variations of fried chicken. They also serve dishes like fried rice and fried dumplings.
This new location will be very close to UB’s North Campus and will most likely be a very popular place for college students to get food when they open.
That kind of food sounds right up my alley, so I’m pretty excited about it.
