New name. Same great flavor.

You may remember our American restaurant as The Friendly Buffalo. Our patrons warmly referred to us as The Buff, so we decided to listen to our audience and make the change. Although we have a different name, we still have the same great menu items. Stop by today to try our Buff Nachos or Whiskey Burger.
