Fatburger acquires Buffalo’s Café. GAAAAAH!

imageApparently, Fatburger acquired a restaurant chain from Atlanta called “Buffalo’s Café”.  They specifically offer buffalo wings.  And if they’re anywhere near Buffalo Wild Wings?  Best.  News.  Ever.  Why?  THERE’S ONE OPENING IN WESTWOOD.   It’s on the site of an old Yoshinoya (good riddance) and I think this is the address:

Buffalo’s Cafe
11090 Santa Monica Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90025

My favorite food in the world is buffalo wings & blue cheese, and celery.  And beer to wash it down.  Until now, I had to drive to the Buffalo Wild Wings in Hollywood which has the BEST wings in the galaxy – hands down.   (And the worst?  Hooter’s.  Damn, are they godawful.  I wouldn’t subject my colon to their cuisine if I was starving.)

I’m not a frequent visitor to Fatburger… however, if this Buffalo’s Café is even half as good as Buffalo Wild Wings… nomnomnom.  Every week.  Here’s the photo on their front page:


Here’s the press release:

Fog Cutter Capital Group Inc., parent to the Fatburger chain, has acquired the 26-unit, casual-dining chicken wing chain Buffalo’s Café, one of several new concepts the group plans to add to its franchise portfolio.

Andrew Wiederhorn, Fog Cutter’s chairman and chief executive, said the move would allow the group’s franchise development subsidiary to offer a new concept to its base of existing brands, both domestically and internationally.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Fog Cutter subsidiary will operate Buffalo’s Café as an all-franchised brand under Buffalo’s Franchise Concepts Inc.

Based in Atlanta, Buffalo’s Café was founded in 1985 and specializes in Buffalo-style chicken wings and tenders, as well as salads, wraps, burgers, ribs and other American classics.
