While I admittedly don’t watch the travel channel much, nor do I have a horse in the “Who has the best chicken wings in Buffalo” race, this is kind of cool.
The travel channel is launching a new show called Food Wars, and their first episode (airing at 10 p.m. Tuesday, March 9) features Buffalo! See details about the show and the episode below:
Food Wars Summary
There’s a debate brewing across the country with legions of loyal fans passionately defending the local eateries and the iconic dishes that make their towns famous. Travel Channel’s newest show, Food Wars, sets out to find the country’s most celebrated dishes – foods that define destinations and create local rivalries spanning generations – and settle the debate, “Who makes the Best Dish in Town?” once and for all. We’re featuring two cities, Buffalo and Chicago, for the premiere in back-to-back episodes of Food Wars on March 9 beginning at 10pm.
Rivalry Details – Buffalo
In Buffalo, NY there is a forty-year food war between Anchor Bar and Duff’s – each claiming to have the best chicken wings in town. The iconic dish was first invented by the people at Anchor Bar earning the restaurant the reputation as being “home to the original”. But first doesn’t necessarily mean “best” and many Buffalonians believe that Duff’s is where it’s at when it comes to Buffalo Chicken Wings. A few years after Anchor Bar, Duff’s began selling its own version of wings and people have been “flocking” to it ever since. But does Duff’s have what it takes to knock the original off its pedestal? It’s gonna take a star-studded blind taste taster panel and even a visit from the city Mayor to settle this city’s serious wing war – which side will you be on?
