Description of Restaurant:
A piece of Buffalo since 1923. Walk in the door and your Love Chef’s picture is on the wall along with Regis and national and local celebrities. This is a local favorite and has become a destination restaurant for visitors. My friend Mary Beth, daughter of the late Lou Billittier, keeps the spirit alive and the food true to its beginnings.

Chef’s is the place where family and friends meet to eat; and they eat well, often taking leftovers home to enjoy again the next day.

Every time I am in Buffalo for a TV appearance on “A.M. Buffalo” we must stop in for their Spaghetti Parmigiana. You’ll see it on most tables, a house specialty. Along with nightly special entrees the regular menu choices are all priced at a great value – everyone leaves satisfied.

The pasta portions come in small and large. On my last visit my Chicken Cacciatore @ $10.95 was just like Mom's.

Boys and girls, make a trip to Buffalo, explore and stay an extra day so you can eat again at Chef’s. And, yes, their bottled sauce is available via mail order select stores, as is their ready to Pop in the Oven Frozen Pizza.

Mama Mia, it’s all good! Mangia!

Full bar service and, yes, some great home made desserts.
