716 Club House Food Truck

716 Food and Sport has launched its very own food truck. The truck will carry similar food items that are already featured at the popular sports bar and restaurant at HarborCenter. The menu will consist of many local favorites and a variety of club sandwiches.

Earlier today 716 Club House Food Truck made a media appearance at the corner of Washington and Scott Streets, to show off its rolling culinary operation. In attendance was Dominic Verni, HarborCenter Vice President of Food and Beverage, Ron Kubiak, HarborCenter Director of Culinary Operations, and Christian Difiglia, HarborCenter General Manager of Catering and Concessions Operations. The three oversaw the “media tasting”, which kicked off at noon. The sample menu included the following lunch selections: Club House Double Melt with Sahlen’s smoked turkey and applewood bacon; the Chicken Nacho Hoagie with marinated chicken, house-made salsa, jalapeno cheese, banana peppers and corn tortilla chips; the Fried Bologna Helicopter; and the Portobello Philly.

716 Club House Food Truck is now on a roll, amplifying its already highly regarded food and sports bar predecessor. The only thing missing appears to be a giant flat screen TV on the side of the vehicle… maybe that will be added down the line.

    I’ve said since the beginning that (716) can get away with their food quality and pricing because of the environment. I would never take my guests there “for the food,” but instead for the experience. I have my doubts about removing the experience aspect, and simply serving the food. My meals have always been average, with an above-average price tag. I’ll certainly give it a try, but I have the bar set pretty high for a truck with that kind of financial freedom. Better be stellar…

  • I actually like the food.

  • LouisTully

    Buffaboy Yeah.  I’ve only eaten there once and had some basic items – wings and poutine – and I thought it was pretty good.

  • Stan Da Man

    BuffaloFenian I thought the food was very good when I was there

  • God forbid we have a tourist trap in Buffalo…  I think of all of the 11 year olds in hockey tournaments.  716 (to them) could be possibly the best place in the world…
    The food truck is smart!  Why wouldn’t they extend the brand with an entry level product that will ultimately drive traffic to the bar/restaurant.  Instead of having a billboard on the highway they have a food truck.

    The truck actually launched over winter, making appearances at canalside.
    Anyhow, the food is okay. I certainly don’t go for the food. Only seems like it would be a worthy experience IF they put TV screens on the truck, you know to keep with their theme of being a sports bar. Even the rinkside grill at harborcenter features small bites off the 716 menu, there’s hockey going on, usually.

    716 is probably the best sports bar in the area. Great TVs, atmosphere, shout out to the second floor bar, that you can access the restaurant from the parking ramp (that was amazing this winter)…but the food? No way, Jose. Its passable because you’re at a sports bar and drinking. It’s not the draw, and can’t imagine the truck doing well without the rest if the formula.

    I hope not — if so, I hope its only on when the truck is parked.

    If they leave it on while the truck is rolling, I fear too many other nearby drivers will be concentrating on the screen, rather than what they should be concentrating on — namely, the road . . .

    Actually that might be a good thing, looking out the car window is safer than a distracted driver looking into their lap.

    Only if what they’re looking at out the car window is the ROAD — looking at video screen isn’t any safer outside the car than it is inside . . .

    I play in a league at harborcenter where we get discounts on the food, I still won’t eat the food unless I’m starved after a game.
