It's that time of the year that comfort food is craved. The temperatures are getting colder, which means warm and comforting food is sought out by Buffalonians.

Chicken wings, beef on weck and French onion soup is some of the most popular comfort foods in Buffalo. Fried chicken in general is super popular any time of year, but even more so in the fall and winter.

Western New York doesn't have as big a selection in fast food chains but that's has changed in recent years, with Chick-fil-A bringing three locations to the area. There's also talk of Raising Cane's coming eventually to Western New York, but if you want some fried chicken, there's another national chain that is finally bringing a location to Buffalo in two weeks.
