The Dirty Buffalo is owned and operated by Western New York native and ODU alum Russell Gilbert. Russ grew up in a small town outside Rochester, New York before moving to Buffalo where he met his wife Stephanie. The couple spent several years shoveling snow and chowing down on the City of Good Neighbors’ iconic fare before heading south to Virginia in 2005. Upon arrival in the Hampton Roads area, Russ and Steph relished in the bright sunshine and friendly people, but they couldn’t find a restaurant where they could enjoy the authentic Buffalo-style chicken wings they’d grown accustomed to eating. After growing up in the restaurant industry, Russ could only think of one solution to this perceptible void. So, while he finished his marketing degree at ODU, Russ set to work on creating a family-friendly restaurant and sports bar featuring his own interpretation of his favorite Western New York dishes.
