I would be remiss if I didn’t point out my go to meal when traveling from the Buffalo Airport. Matties, located at the far end of the terminal near the last gates, is a WNY institution for quick meals. Originally owned and operated by dethroned former Chair of the Erie County legislature George Holt… this joint can put out one hell of a breakfast sandwich.
Bread options are English muffin, hard roll, bagel, biscuit, or crossiant and you get your choice of bacon, sausage, or ham. The preformed egg rounds and meats are microwaved to order … as is the case with 90 percent of most breakfast sandwich joints. Each breakfast sandwich gets a double hit of egg rounds.. which makes this a bonus sandwich.
Service is fast and friendly, the sandwich is cooked to order, and it’s one of the few local businesses in the Buffalo Airport.
And you can’t beat the price. With airport restaurants often running at a 200 percent markup “just because they can” these breakfast sandwiches start at just under four bucks.
ProTip: they also have the cheapest bottled water in the BNIA.
Next time you’re flying through, I highly recommend this breakfast sandwich.
