Signs of Life at Just Fries

After first announcing his intentions to open the city’s first french fry café in November of ’14, Just Fries owner Don Warfe is finally prepared to do business in Downtown Buffalo. The eatery is back on track and is still set to be the city’s first restaurant dedicated to the fry. Just Fries has been slinging fries down at Canalside in the meantime (see here), though fry fans have been waiting for the big day when the operation would pump life back into the 9 Genesee Street location.

The eatery is set to join a number of other restaurants in close proximity to its Genesee/Main Street digs, including D’Avolio, Casa di Pizza, Oshun, Tappo, Big Ditch, Deep South Taco, and a handful of others closer to the Genesee Gateway.


The opening of Just Fries was delayed numerous times due to the sheer amount of work that needed to be done on the building, some of which was held up by the reconstruction of Roosevelt Plaza, which is now complete.

It would be nice to see The Hyatt (located across Main Street) set up some café chairs and tables during the summer time, to add to the momentum of the district. One would think that the hotel would want to capitalize on the growing vibe by creating some of its own action on Main Street.

While an actual opening day has not been announced, Just Fries fans can follow the updates on Facebook.
