Buff's Pub in Newton Corner Has Closed for Now; Will Reopen Soon

One of the best-known places for wings in the Greater Boston area has closed for the time being.

According to a source, Buff's Pub in Newton Corner is shuttered, with the website for the Washington Street spot saying that "For the safety of our staff and customers, Buffs will be closed until further notice." The note goes on to tell customers to check back for updates, though it is not yet known why the place has closed or for approximately how long.

Buff's Pub is considered by some to have the best wings in the region and is often compared to Wendell's Pub, a legendary watering hole and wing spot in Norton.

The address for Buff's Pub is 317 Washington Street, Newton, MA, 02458. Its website can be found at http://www.buffspub.com/

[January 19 update: A tweet from Dave of Buff's Pub mentions that the place closed because of a couple of people testing positive for Covid; he says that they will be doing cleaning and testing and if all goes well, they could be reopening in the next day or two.]

[January 22 update: A Facebook post from the place indicates that Buff's Pub will reopen Saturday and Sunday for takeout/online orders.]
