If you were born and raised in Buffalo, chances are you know which foods are the best in Western New York. Not just wings, beef on weck, or pizza, but where to get these famous Buffalo foods and yes, pizza isn't exclusive to Buffalo, but Buffalo-style pizza certainly is.

I was having a conversation with a friend this past weekend regarding what is a pretty famous dive bar in Buffalo, but the talk was whether or not they had one of the best food items in all of Buffalo?

The dive bar is the Old Pink located on Allen St. in Buffalo and the food item in question is the steak sandwich.

The steak sandwich is legendary for those who live in the neighborhood of the Old Pink, but it may be getting more well-known as time goes by.

The sandwich is exactly what it sounds like. A steak loin cooked to your liking on a hoagie bread roll with cheese and onions and peppers.

It's not just the Old Pink either, as Mother's Restaurant also serves up a great steak sandwich.

I don't think this food item is very popular in many other parts of the country, but it's certainly something most people would love. I mean, a steak slabbed into a sub roll? Obviously, that just sounds awesome.

Having a steak sandwich at the Old Pink is a rite of passage for Buffalonians and my friend said as much this past weekend, as he has been there quite a few times.

Now I'm hungry.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
