I've heard a lot of people from outside of Buffalo say that when they are in Western New York they have to have a fish fry. It would makes sense as Buffalo is an extremely Catholic community that bases their Friday traditions on Lent and giving up meat on Fridays.

Buffalo also is donned the Capital of Dyngus Day in Buffalo. If you're looking for to try somewhere new every Friday in the suburbs, here are your best shots!
