It's not ♿️ , 🐔 wings were great, so great that we ate them in the car. They never made it to the house, so there no pics, and the sauce is awesome. Staff are knowledgeable. There are no tables to dine at. There are no restrooms. you're not there long enough to have to go. So, overall, go get some wings. And remember to take pics lol.

Food was fresh and cooked to order! Was a little on the pricier side for wings but the flavors were well worth it!Be prepared to enjoy the hot Carolina weather or sit in your car because there is no inside seating just outside picnic tables!Overall I will definitely be returning!

Heavenly Buffaloes is one of my favorite places to eat because of their vegan nuggets and the flavor options. I Love the fact that you can order and eat outside at the restaurant or you can take it to go. I used to eat here once a week but now I live almost two hours away I come at least once a month.

It's definitely one of our favorite spots to grab dinner. .. The flavors offered for both wet and dry rub are crazy good! The boneless chicken and the sweet potato fries with ranch dry rub will make any evening better.

I grow my own peppers to make my own hot sauces, and I travel all over the country, so I've been to countless wing joints. I say that not to brag, but to provide proper context for my next statement: Their Bernie Zass-Hoff might be the best hot Buffalo sauce of any restaurant I've ever been to. It is properly, very, spicy, but still has a very good flavor, which is frequently overlooked. I'm sauces this spicy because most will just be overwhelmed and not notice it. Their spicy BBQ was also very good with a perfect medium level of spice. The staff was also incredibly friendly and clearly cared about their products. All that said, they were slow at the time, and I suspect that's probably why the wings themselves were a little overcooked, as were the fries.

Stopped by for my first time. Had challenges ordering due to the confusion around the description that was provided. But the server, having realized the mounding inconvenience, offered two extra drinks as a way of apologizing for the confusion and thanking us for our patience and positive nature. To that, I am grateful for his steps to make the matter right and for the peace offering. Heavenly Buffaloes - you have my patronage, and I encourage others to visit. Thank you

I don't miss much about Durham, but I miss my local wing place! I moved about 2 years ago and haven't had my wing fix since! I wish I had some photos to share, but trust me. If I'm still thinking about the food from two years ago, you have to try it for yourself! I always got the boneless wings with half Sweet Thai Coconut Chili and the other half with Carolina Honey Mustard. The waffle fries with the Garlic Parmesan seasoning were a hit every time. I miss this shack on the corner so much! Hopefully one day I can come and visit again soon and get my wing fix! Locals, please eat some fries and wings for me!

First time here and there is a lot of good to say, but one glowing negative turns this from 5 stars into 3. I ordered 25 Bone-In Wings, Celery & Carrots, & a Half Fry for about $45. Chicken: Jumbo chicken wings as promised! Very big wings that are cooked perfectly. Sauce: I tried the Spicy BBQ and Carolina Honey Mustard. Spicy BBQ was pretty good. Carolina Honey Mustard was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Love it and would definitely recommend. Tangy and not too sweet. Fries: a Half Fry is more than enough for one person. Big waffle fries that are fried crispy and lightly salted. No Complaints here. Bleu Cheese is perfectly acceptable and not too overwhelming. A nice compliment to the large fries. Carrots and Celery: THIS IS MY COMPLAINT. Heavenly Buffaloes charged me $2.25 for 7 Baby Carrots and 3 pieces of Celery. Absolutely ridiculous when these are things that are often included free of charge. This is the sole reason that this review has been reduced from 5 Stars to 3. While this spot is on the pricey side, the wings are awesome and I highly recommend. Do not waste your money on the vegetables.

Great food, awesome service! Definitely will be back to try other flavors. Heads up there is no bathroom at the shack, but there’s a gas station across the street.

Boneless wings were fantastic as were the lemon pepper fries but the number of baby carrots I received was nothing short of comical: a measly three. Obviously inflation is hitting us all pretty hard but 26 cents per raw carrot is by many metrics a pretty substantial markup that is only reasonable if each carrot were to be individually dipped in holy water and blessed by an ordained minister. The etablishment being heavenly buffaloes, it's entirely possible that this did occur so for gifting me with three of the Lord's most trusted carrots I will return the favor with one star per vessel of sanctity.

I finally made it here for there vegan wings and they did not disappoint! I ordered the Zass-hoff (level 4 spice) and the Thai Coconut with peanuts (level 1 spice) with the vegan ranch. I love spicy food and I found the level 4 truly spicy but still enjoyable. I’m not sure I would want the level 5. I ordered it to-go and the order was ready within 10 minutes on an early Friday night. I will definitely be back for more!

This is a great place to get food, it was pretty busy. You may want to consider placing your order online to shorten the wait time because each order is made fresh. There is only outdoor seating, which were three picnic tables on the side. The price per person is about $15.

The food and service was very great. I got the boneless wings and my friend got the vegan wings. We were both pretty satisfied and the sauces were great (spicy BBQ and mild). We also shared a large order of garlic parmesan waffle fries. A half order would have been enough as our portion could have fed 3-4 people.

Wings are so great. I love coming here with my friends cause we all love it. The only issue is that there is not much seating so if they are busy it becomes hard to stay around. The fries are also kinda mid

Best fried wings I have had in a long time! I got the Hot Buffalo (spice level 3) and it was a very tasty buffalo style sauce with a good amount of heat. The wings were large and juicy. The waffle fries were excellent as well. A very subtle coating made them extra crispy and nicely seasoned. Very pleased with the entire meal. I'll be back!
