The Orange Buffalo is the product of two school friends, Nick and Mike, who did a road trip across America and decided to bring a piece of it back. What started as a drunken dream, lots of tequila and a hearty handshake became a reality in 2012 with the opening of UK’s first dedicated Buffalo Wing food truck, right in the heart of fashionable Shoreditch.
Their wings were an instant hit and went on to white wash the UK’s first Chicken Wing Competition picking up first prize in both categories, 2012 was just the start but what a start it was!
In 2014, The Orange Buffalo was on its’ way to Brighton, taking up a super successful residency in a new venue. Here they won the Best Pub Grub of the Brighton Restaurant Awards in 2017.
Word was spreading fast and quickly established a cult like following. They picked up Time Out’s Best Restaurant in Shoreditch and Hoxton at the 2016 Love London Awards.
Kick starting the UK’s buffalo wing movement, The Orange Buffalo were on fire and in 2017 took over the kitchen at the famous music venue, Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen.
Word spread around South London and we opened our first dine in location in Tooting in 2019, after a few renewals and loads of sleepless nights, we now offer a full TOB experience with a live sports bar serving cocktails and special dishes. 2020 hit us quite hard but thanks to the support of our customers, we managed to survive, we opened our online store and we now have a new location in the centre of Soho.
The best is yet to come!
