Our Story

Sport of Kings has been around since 1986. It was started by a father and his young son, Rich, who decided after years of doing dishes and cooking in diners all over Buffalo, he was ready to start a restaurant of his own.  With guidance from his old boss and support from his wife and family he did just that.  Over the next 30 years he learned everything he needed to know, from how to fix the plumbing to ordering the most cost effective way.  He brought on his brother in law, Lou, and the two of them work diligently to keep the restaurant running like a well oiled machine. 

Rich’s daughter, Brenna, is now doing her best to learn everything she can from her dad.  She has quite literally grown up in the business.  From going to work with her dad as a child, to waiting tables since 15, she is slowly starting to get comfortable in managerial shoes. 

Sport of Kings has always had strong ties to the community.  It’s important to them that they support other local business, contribute to school functions and help many community members in times of need.  In order to do so they know they need to rely on their customers and the business they bring.  It is with that attitude that they continually try to make every single customer happy.  If there is a dish you would like made, they will do their best to make it.  If there is a special need you have, they will try to meet it.

Your business is important to keeping this family legacy alive. You are important.  Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about us and for giving this small town diner a chance to earn your business.
