“Gabriel's Gate reflects the quirky eccentric appeal of Allentown, replete with mounted animals and year-round Christmas statues from your favorite Christmas claymation films. While Anchor Bar has gained the reputation of being home to the first buffalo wing, it stops there for the locals. Gabriel's Gate hails some of Buffalo's biggest, juiciest (yet crispiest) wings. Try the BBQ flavored wings and you won't be disappointed! Not a wing fan? Their menu offers a wide variety of options, and they're known for the French Onion soup as well as their wings!”
