Our Menu Title There's a Deco near you!

Deco Restaurants dotted the city of Buffalo much like a McDonalds or a Burger King does today. Most were strategically located near trolley stops, railroad depots or large businesses. Deco had two peak periods in its history; the mid '30s and the early '50s. Contained in this page is a complete listing of every Deco Restaurant in the Buffalo area as taken from both the 1930 and 1950 City Directories. Worthy of note is the fact that some of the locations from the 1930 directory were either closed or moved to a new location.

By clicking on each location's address, you will see a map showing the spot where the Deco stood as well as the surrounding area. Keep in mind that each location is approximate to the map since very few of the original buildings still exist. By doing a little detective work you might be able to determine as to what reason a particular Deco was located where it was. For example, the one at 48 South Park serviced the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad depot, and the one at 1437 Clinton Street serviced the Clinton-Bailey farmer's market. Black dotted lines indicate railroad tracks.

Unfortunately, photographs of each location are rare.
