Man Bites "Junkyard Dog"

The quick description would be: it's an entire fish fry in your hand (and soon in your belly). The "Junkyard Dog" is fried fish, french fries, coleslaw, and hot sauce, all wrapped up in a flatbread. It's lovingly prepared daily at Ms. Goodies in Buffalo.

Kevin O'Neill sampled one on Thursday's Daybreak.

The restaurant has breakfasts and other lunch specials, of course. But the junkyard dog seems to gather special attention. In fact, that item has won awards at the "Taste Of Buffalo" 4 out of last 6 years, including the "People's Choice" award.

Ms. Goodies is at 1836 Bailey Avenue, near Walden.  They are open Monday through Saturday, from 7:30 a.m. until 2. They are open late on Friday, until 7 p.m.

Tanisha Mackin Watched Her Husband Die Outside City Grill

BUFFALO, NY - Tanisha Mackin remembers Danyell Mackin as a "wonderful man."  The couple met when they were teens.  They were married one year when Danyell, 31, was fatally shot outside City Grill.

The Mackins were at City Grill with a small group of friends celebrating their anniversary. The following day a formal anniversary party was planned and Tanisha was going to wear a wedding gown.  She never got to wear it and won't even look at the gown.

In an exclusive interview with 2 On Your Side's Claudine Ewing, Tanisha said her husband was "so happy that night, so happy to be home."

The Mackins moved to Texas in 2006. Tanisha said the gun violence that claimed the lives of relatives was a main reason she left town.
