Old Man River

Ahhh, the sweet smell of spring and summer. It's only a couple months away, we can make it! Taking a drive down to Niawanda park in Tonawanda when the snow melts is a staple of many Buffalonians. Whether you're taking a walk, riding your bike or blades, it's the place to be! Old Man River is roughly 100 feet from the Niagara river so the view is superb.

OMR has a variety of sandwiches and items to choose from. The hot dogs and burgers are cooked on the grill as well as the unique vegetarian treat, the bunny dog. It's a seasoned, par boiled carrot grilled to perfection and eaten with a bun like a hot dog. There is quite a variety of hot dogs to choose from, the regular, foot long or white hot, my personal favorite. They have a wide variety of condiments that can be added by their dressers, I recommend the hot relish. Their french fries are made from natural potatoes and you really can tell the difference. The sweet fries are made from freshly cut yams and served with butter and brown sugar. Do you like seafood? Check out the "seafood shack". Clams served raw, boiled or casino, as well as lobster and shrimp.

It's a great place to take the family, serving ice cream, milkshakes and sundae's. There's a replica of a pirate ship for the children to eat or play on. You also have the option to walk down to sit by the mighty Niagara river. It's certainly something you need to do a few times over the summer. As you can see from the Urbanspoon ratings it's truly a WNY fave.
