A well-known Buffalo, New York-based restaurant franchise recently opened its first location in Virginia in the Village at Leesburg and celebrated its grand opening on Aug. 22.

Anchor Bar, which is known to have “the Original Buffalo Wing,” is also a licensed Buffalo Bills team backer bar, which they will be highlighting during the upcoming National Football League season.

Co-owner Lee Shabe, of Leesburg, said he previously lived in upstate New York and is a longtime fan of the restaurant. He was interested in opening one in Loudoun County and his team with Xenith Management Group, a service-disabled veteran owned small business, plan to open several locations in Northern Virginia in the next few years.
