Restaurant Testimonials

Some of what our restaurants are saying...

"We joined the Taste of Buffalo to showcase what Sidelines Sports Bar and Grill had to offer. We thought it would be a great way as a new restaurant to get our name, face and food on the map in Buffalo," said Hillary Collura of Sidelines Sports Bar and Grill. "The Taste of Buffalo gave us exposure through radio, television and social media prior to and during the event. As a result, Sidelines has experienced an increase in customer base and recognition as one of Buffalo's sports bar and grill destinations. This event also gave us the opportunity to come in contact with thousands of people that may not have otherwise considered visiting us."
- Hillary Collura of Sidelines Sports Bar and Grill
