Served traditionally alongside bleu cheese dressing, celery and carrot sticks for a little lagniappe, these chicken wing-ettes are smothered in Captain’s Chipotle Sauce, a Colorado-made table sauce made to the Buffalo Bar & Restaurant’s specifications. The flavorful, smoky pepper of the wings is a perfect complement to a beer and a ball game (preferably the Broncos!).

Through the years, the restaurant has expanded from the core building built in 1881 into a total of four historic buildings along Miner Street — all with colorful pasts. Today, the recently remodeled joint is connected with the Westbound & Down Brewery, which creates thirst-quenching brews with 100 percent Clear Creek County snowmelt; all of the brewery's beers are available at the Buffalo Bar & Restaurant (opt for the Denver Day Trip Session IPA). 

The eatery also boasts a welcoming ambiance with modern amenities, including TVs broadcasting sporting events, but it also has a family-friendly, Western atmosphere with a collection of antique signs and other historical items to view, including an original 1865 New York Herald with headlines of President Lincoln’s assassination.
