The Bar Bill Tavern is a WNY staple known for the world's best beef on weck and chicken wings! The bar & restaurant has been an institution in East Aurora, NY since the day it opened its doors in 1967 (the building itself has stood for over 150 years).

This pub style tavern brings simplicity back to the local watering hole. Rich wood, a massive marble bar and gleaming brass fixtures transport you to the quintessential American canteen.

The stripped-down menu offers Buffalo bar favorites like Chicken Wings and Beef on Weck. Neither option created at the Bar-Bill, but both perfected here. While you wait for your wings to be fried extra crispy or your beef to be hand carved at the bar you can enjoy a beer from our nine draft selections or extensive bottle list.

The bar continues to be filled with new comers, old friends, and a dedicated staff. We would love to show you the bar we love: no frills, no pretense, just a place to meet your old friends

The beef on weck is the best around. Their chicken wings are remarkable plump and juicy. With all this Covid stuff going on it was amazing to see that there wasn’t hardly anyone in this restaurant. Usually the place is packed. I’m from out of state and every time I come to visit I have to stop there, it’s a great atmosphere.

As always, my party was met with kindness when checking in. Table was sanitized and COVID19 precautions were being followed by staff. Food was delicious, the wings are perfect every time. Barbill has new seasonal beer on tap so get in before it all goes.

Hands down best beef on weck in the area. The beef is always tender and sliced thin as it should be. Beef to roll ratio is perfect. The Sicilian wings are different and delish.

Came in for a casual night out and the wings were delicious! The Cajun honey butter bbq sounds like a lot of flavors but it was some of the best wings we’ve ever had. Very delicious all around, it is cash only which caught us by surprise so we just had to get cash out of the atm which wasn’t a big deal.

First Sunday of the Bills season in the middle of a pandemic. The food and drinks were great, as always. The service was outstanding, as always. Always recommend the wings, pizza logs and beef on weck. While the crowd wasn't as big as usual, their guidelines and policies clear and easy to follow. Felt very safe while also having a good time. Everyone should be commended during this unusual time.

Everything was great, except there needs to be a way to specify outside seating. We did put it in the notes, but ended up having to wait.

Bar Bill, in my opinion, is the best place for wings in Buffalo. Their beef on weck is also a contender for best in the area. Our typical order is splitting a small beef, an order of honey butter BBQ wings, onion rings, and a couple of cold, delicious beverages. Their bloody Marys are also awesome. Food is always amazing, service is fast and friendly. Definitely in my top 3 of places to go for food in Buffalo.
