The Silo Restaurant in Lewiston, NY has won many awards for their great food. We are very proud of each and every one of these accolades! In August 2011, Adam Richman of the Travel Channel’s Man V. Food visited the Silo to try our now world famous Haystack. Adam joined us in the kitchen to watch how the dish was made before he tasted the Haystack.

We pride ourselves in using only the best in everything we make. For example our burgers. We use a fresh-never-frozen, lean, ground chuck (muscle meat only) made from local cows on a grass diet. Our roll is a fresh locally baked Italian hard roll with no preservatives. The cheese is aged cheddar, not processed American. We top it with tomatoes that are local and pesticide free, green leaf lettuce, and red onions. It comes as no surprise that our burgers were voted Western New York’s Best! But it doesn’t stop at there. We use that same philosophy and commitment on every item on our menu!
The Silo Restaurant is also very committed to the environment. We choose to buy cups and utensils that are made from plants. Greenware® cold drink cups and lids are a line of crystal clear, American made premium service ware manufactured from Ingeo™ biopolymer, a resin derived entirely from plants. They are 100% compostable and breakdown in a landfill in just 45 says. The cleaning products we choose are green, and the veggie oil is being used to fuel a fleet of greasecars. We are such believers in recycling that we used a coal silo and a caboose as our facility!
