    I am not sure of the origin but I do know it is a roast beef sandwich
with horse radish on the salty kummelweck bun.  Had my first one in 1966 at
age 9 at a small bar in Kenmore right off of Main Street in North Buffalo.
And I make sure I have another one every time I'm in Buffalo!

    While we are talking about Buffalo food, don't forget "Theodore's By The
Lake"  aka Ted's Hot Dog Stand, right by the Peace Bridge and, of course,
the Anchor Bar's Buffalo Wings.

    Sorry everyone....I know this is a history list and not the Food Channel
but I couldn't help myself!

Take care,

Buck Buchanan

Subject: Beef on weck

> I'm trying to document a Western New York (especially Buffalo and
vicinity) bar/tavern sandwich: beef on weck or beef on kummelweck. Any leads
would be appreciated, especially anything in writing that pre-dates the
1960s. Thanks.
