    Default Where did the term "Buffalo Chicken" come from?

    I never understood this. There is absolutely no buffalo meat, no buffalo
    hair, no buffalo parts, or anything else connected to buffalo in this
    food.
    Why do they call it this name?

    I believe that those hot wings were first introduced in Buffalo, NY.
    Nada to do with any animal.

    Bingo!

    Buffaloes don't have wings. ;-)

    buffalo wings originated at Frank and Teressa's Anchor Bar, of Buffalo
    New York.

    http://www.anchorbar.com/original.php

    Wings used to be cheap -- the popularity of Buffalo wings drove up the
    price, making deep fried hunks of breast meat economically appealing.

    It's a figure of speech. Chickens like to roam free, like the buffalo
    in that old song. If the "buffalo wings" are made from factory
    chicken, the restaurant is perpetrating a fraud.

    I guess you were lonely in the wee hours and needed to do some trolling.

    Chicken Kiev. Chicago pizza. Think for a while and you'll be able to
    come up with plenty of foods that are named for their point of origin.

    That's a good thing, I'd hate to have one of them crash into my roof

    Thanks for all who replied.
    Oddly enough few people seem to know about this. A local Hardees sells
    them, and I asked several of the workers the reason, no one knew.

    If they did, they'd probly be working somewhere else other than
    Hardee's.

    I'm not sure people working at any fast food restaurant would know this. Of
    course it's Buffalo NY.

    I saw a show on Discovery or Travel or Food...one of them,
    that had the annual Buffalo chicken wings festival or something
    like that. A big annual event with wings and a contest anyway.

    One of the principals, NOT an outsider, said it was the only
    reason anyone would want to come to Buffalo. I haven't got
    that far north so I can't say but it did seem a bit rude to
    talk about your own town that way.

    I do "buffalo whole chicken" using the cheap on-sale chicken. Just as tasty
    and more meat in each bite.

    He was probably speaking the truth, which is often hard on delicate
    ears.

    Brooklyn has redeemed many of his past sins with this statement.

    Many many years ago, long before our time, in a distant past in the
    wild wet there lived a creature called the Buficken. It was a small
    creature that resembled a cow but had feathers and wings. Much like
    many animals...it was nearly killed off for it's tasty wings. today,
    they are raised in a very secret location that not even the CIA or the
    FBI know there whereabouts. And now you know the rest of the story.

    It's just a show of reverence for the extinct species Air Buffalo which was
    hunted to extinction by native Americans in an effort to get rid of falling
    debris.

    Sadly, the folks in Buffalo probably don't know what a Hardee's is.
    None in NY or most of PA.

    I loved Hardee's in the 70's when I was in NC. Surprised they
    never invaded NY.
