    When in France we're always on the lookout for a good meal at a reasonable price and we always get just that at a Buffalo Grill - never been disappointed.
    Much better than Flunch and not as expensive as some restaurants.
    Yesterday lunchtime the usual gathering of MHs in front of Auchan but many now using the Auchan carpark as a convenient place to park and nipping across the road to lunch in BG where the parking is a bit tight.

    I thought we'd stumbled across a rally! but I didn't join in the cross table banter as I had my head down into one of the best plates of BBQ ribs I've had anywhere and enough freshly cooked frites to feed me for a week (but I managed to force them down).

    If you've never tried a Buffalo Grill, give it a go sometime - you can't miss them.

    Funnily enough, when we were in France in May Alan & I were discussing the fact that we'd never eaten at a Buffalo Grill and we've been going over there for over 20 years! Will have to give one a go some day.

    Just enough room to look at the pictures!

    The dessert range is really good but mostly "2 spoon" affairs.

    BG has been a regular haunt when on motorcycle trips there over the years! :)

    Each to their own! Don't like a light on top of my head.

    Had one of the best steaks ever in the BG in Calais. The " Pavé" was superb.

    Had lunch once in Court Paille and wondered why the waiters were looking a bit peeved with us, then realised that we had not adjusted our clock for Summer a Time and it was one hour later than we thought.

    Being British we just smiled and left as quickly as possible.
