Let's Go Buffalo!
The Bills were at their peak in the 1990’s when quarterback Jim Kelly and his no huddle offense instilled hope in all of us. Jim Kelly led the Bills to 4 Super Bowls and I was lucky enough to attend 2 of them. Sadly, none were won and I sat in the stands amongst thousands of fans, again with my hopes dashed.
Not knowing what to expect we headed over to Hunley’s to try and catch the kick off, which we did. The restaurant was packed! Much of the crowd was wearing Bill’s attire and one guy carried in a helmet signed by Jim Kelly himself. Did I mention that I had used to have a crush on him? Ahh… youth.
Anyway, the service was friendly, brisk and the food was terrific. We ordered a Beef on ‘Weck, a Buffalo staple that I have not seen served anywhere outside of Western New York. Thinly sliced, slow roasted roast beef piled high upon a hard roll that is topped with rock salt and caraway seeds (Kimmelweck roll) and accompanied by a side of horseradish. THIS, is a Buffalo staple.
The sandwich was juicy, tender and made you want another, but my husband resisted.

We gave Hunley's 4 out of a possible 5 plates.
