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, & 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.

    We took our eldest daughter there for her 24 th birthday ( she always wanted to try this gem). Family ordered h to the chicken sandwich.. fantastic!! Quesadillas, and of course had to order wings. We ordered the honey butter bbq and the Asian spice both extra crispy..FABULOUS!!! Finally one of the few places that when you say extra crispy they do it.. totally recommend.

    The hostess was very prompt on getting us to our table. The waiter was very tentative and even made a virgin strawberry daiquiri on the fly. Food came out quick at perfect temp, cooked just right and the staff there was helpful among themselves having there been two others that interacted with us. Just some more reasons to add to why this is mine and my wifes favorite spot to eat!

    We had a wonderful Sunday evening at Bar-Bill. Molly & Lori were very friendly and prompt with getting our order & making sure our drinks were full :-) We split the Bar-Bill style pizza logs for an app (with cajun medium sauce on them) and then shared a beef on weck, cajun Sicilian wings, medium wings & waffle fries. Our 1.5 year old daughter loved her plain chicken fingers too! We don't get to go out too often since we have a little one, but this experience was excellent and we can't wait to come back soon!

    I try to come to Bar-Bill every few weeks even though I’m 45 minutes away. Best wings in Western New York. Can never get enough. This particular time I ran into a traffic accident backing up the highway so I was 30 min late for my reservation. I had called and they were very understanding and didn’t lose my table. I’m really thankful they were so accommodating, especially at peak dinner time. Service and food quality is perfect every visit. Never had a not-great experience. I’d dine here every night if I could! Hard for me to eat anywhere else when Bar-Bill is an option. Can’t rave about Bar-Bill enough!

    Service was very good. Only comment for improvement is we ordered 2 beef on weck with waffle fries along with an order of 10 wings. We said the beefs could come out first and they did but the waffle fries did not come until the wings came as opposed to coming out with the beef sandwiches. Food was very good.
