Taste of Buffalo is easily one of the most anticipated festivals of the year in Western New York. Some people can’t wait to sample new culinary delights, while other attendees visit their favorite restaurants’ stands to get a taste of an old favorite. Whatever your reason for attending, you’re simply trying to get your chow on. Hard.

Take a look at all the offerings on the Taste of Buffalo menu, and tell us in the comments below what you’re most excited to taste at the festival.

One winner will be selected at random from the comments section to win two Regal Cinemas passes. We’ll draw a name at approximately 4 p.m. today (Friday, July 8).
