Meet Buffalo's Newest Food Truck: The Knight Slider

Meet Buffalo's Newest Food Truck: The Knight Slider

About two weeks ago Knight Slider suddenly appeared on the Buffalo Food Truck scene. We love Buffalo’s Food Trucks, so we were excited to see a new one out and about (I think they were first spotted in Larkinville, damn that place is awesome). It took a few days but I (Alli) finally got a chance to head over for lunch last week while they were parked at the First Niagara Center (they really need some tables in that plaza so people can enjoy their food on the spot).

Marco's Is Worth A Trip to the West Side

Marco's Is Worth A Trip to the West Side

I don’t normally get that excited when Alli and I go to Italian restaurants, but since we started Buffalo Eats I’ve heard only good things about Marco’s Fine Italian Dining. I previously visited Marco’s Deli and loved the food, plus I knew chef Marco Sciortino had some serious chops after watching the Nickel City Chef XII Recap. The restaurant isn’t in the prettiest of places, located on Niagara Street near the Rich Products plant in the West Side, but that definitely doesn’t detour their customers. In the grass “parking lot” across the street we found plenty of luxury cars and inside was a busy crowd on a Friday evening.
