Buffalo’s Cafe (Athens, GA)
196 Alps Rd #49, Athens, GA 30606, T: 706-354-6655
Buffalo’s Café is a regional chain of sports bars with fifteen locations in Georgia, one in California, and one in Doha, Qatar. The menu is a mix of classic American and TexMex fare – hence the self-reference as “Southwest café.” I come to watch a World Cup game and start with a Taster ($7.99): six quite small chicken wings tossed in fairly little "Scorchin'" buffalo sauce. Not remarkable.
I later get the Chicken Tender Platter ($10.99): breaded chicken tenders with curly fries, coleslaw, and garlic bread. I substitute curly fries with homemade chips. The tenders are quite thin and thinly battered. They are bit dry, the batter is bland, the honey mustard sauce is ok. Chips are fresh and ok. Coleslaw is bland, garlic bread buttery but quite tasty.
This was the second time I visited Buffalo's Cafe and both times the food has been between bland and ok.
