The Dirty Buffalo Explained

FAQ’S About The Dirty Buffalo

  1. What’s a Dirty Plate?

    The Dirty Plate is a Rochester, NY inspired dish consisting of a protein, such as chicken tenders, burgers, or hot dogs, sitting atop two homestyle sides, such as mac n cheese and home fries, all of which is smothered in your choice of sauce.  The quintessential comfort dish, no one pretends the Dirty Plate is nutritious, but we promise it is worth every calorie!


  2. What makes a wing “authentic Buffalo-style?” Isn’t a chicken wing a chicken wing?

    Not all chicken wings are created equal.  For starters, we believe wings should be big and meaty–a meal in themselves–not just an appetizer.  Buffalo-style wings are fried, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, and traditionally come doused in a cayenne-pepper-based hot sauce.  We are proud to use Frank’s Hot Sauce as the base for all our Buffalo-style sauces. The traditional accompaniment is blue cheese dressing and celery, but we do offer ranch.


  3. So, if the owners are from Western New York, does that mean you’re a Bills Backers Bar?

    You know it! In addition to other NFL games, every Sunday we feature the Bills game on our 60-inch HDTV centered above our bar, complete with surround-sound, Canadian beer, and game day specials.  And yes, there are other hapless Bills fans in Hampton Roads, and you will find them here on Sundays during the NFL season.


  4. What can I expect on my first visit to The Dirty Buffalo?

    We prepare all our food to order in a casual, inviting atmosphere with 5 large screen TVs, a full bar and plenty of quality customer service.  Although you will order at the counter, our servers will be happy to answer any questions you have, deliver your food, and clean up after you’re done.  Please note that fresh, delicious food can take some time so if you are in a rush, please call ahead and pick up your order.


  5. Do you deliver? 

    Not yet.  We are in the process of looking into expanding our kitchen so we have the capacity to offer delivery of our products.


  6. Do you have a catering menu?
