In my mind, there are three ingredients to a good, old-fashioned diner. Good food, cheap prices, and coffee … lots of coffee. Teddy’s Family Restaurant ticks all three boxes—and lucky me, it’s just minutes away from my house, right on the Lackawanna/South Buffalo border. Teddy’s has a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it storefront facing Abbott Road, and a large parking lot to …

If you haven’t been to Imperial Pizza on Abbott Road in South Buffalo in a while, you may find yourself doing a double take while passing by. “Didn’t that place used to be a little shack?” You might think to yourself. “Wasn’t there barely enough room for the counter, and maybe a picnic table or two outside?” That was then. Imperial has undergone an extensive renovation …

We have plenty of summer festivals in Buffalo—usually several per week from May into September. But organizers are confident the new Beau Fleuve Music and Arts Festival, scheduled for Aug. 19 at Buffalo RiverWorks, will stand out from the crowd. “It’s a celebration of all things Buffalo,” said founder Lindsey Taylor. “We wanted to cultivate a music and arts festival tha…

With a pizza place or fast food restaurant seemingly every corner, there is no lack of options in South Buffalo in which to grab a quick bite. Sometimes, though, you’re craving something a little different. That’s where Pete-N-Paul’s comes in. Despite having lived in the area for more than three years now, I’ve betrayed my South Buffalo transplant status by never wander…

We were heading to dinner with my fiancé’s parents last week when my future father-in-law pointed at an unassuming brick building near the intersection of Seneca Street and Ridge Road, across the street from West Seneca West Senior High School. “You know, I used to go to that place for breakfast all the time,” he said as we slowed to a stop for a red light. “They had gr…

Sometimes, despite our efforts, Mondays live up to their negative stereotypes. On one recent occasion, after a long day and an equally busy evening, making dinner was a very unappetizing prospect. A far better idea? Ordering from LT’s Olde Tyme Pizza and Subs in West Seneca. LT’s has two locations (the other is on Main Street in Clarence, in Dash’s Market). The West Senec…
