Shango – Live Music, Lunch, and Libations

Food lovers in Buffalo have come to know and love Shango Bistro & Wine Bar.  Over the years, the establishment has managed to create and maintain a devoted clientele.  This really is no small feat in the fickle restaurant industry, where many doors seem to close just as fast as they open.

Shango consistently puts out great food. Food, you can count on, sure, but just as important, the owners and staff create an experience where customers are treated to excellent food and affordable prices. Take, for example, their happy hour specials running Tuesday though Friday. These specials include a bar menu featuring deals on their revered food, and $5 glasses of wine, with select beers priced at $4.50. Wednesdays they offer a 3-course dinner for $20, and there is even live New Orleans jazz on Thursdays! Well now, the end of the work week just got a bit sweeter, don’t you think?

Starting last Friday, Shango added lunch service to their roster – something fans will surely rally behind. Shango no longer just shines at dinner time. Now, one can expect to find lunch dishes such as chicken and sausage gumbo, blackened shrimp salad, creole chicken cacciatore, quinoa jambalaya, Cajun fried chicken sandwich, macaroni and cheese, and braised meatballs. Lunch runs from 11:30am to 2:30pm on a weekly basis.

If that wasn’t enough, Shango is also running a Friday Happy Hour which starts at 2pm and ends at 7:30pm every week for the foreseeable future.  Now, that is a very rare find indeed, because not many places pass along these types of deals, especially at the onset of the weekend.

It’s the little things that keep customers coming back. And Shango Bistro & Wine Bar seems to have figured out the perfect balance of food and drink for customers who are looking for deliciously good deals during the day, and at prime time.
