The Best French Onion Soup in Buffalo

For those who know them, REALTORS® Christopher Mekker and Angela Mekker are unofficially considered to be the foremost French Onion Soup Connoisseurs in town. Now it is time for Buffalo City Living to make their Connoisseur Status official! We have asked our Facebook followers to post their opinions and to join the Mekkers on their epic adventure to find the Best French Onion Soup in Buffalo!

French Onion Soup Rating

How does a French Onion Connosseur grade, or rate, their soup? For interest of simplicity, we have devised a 5-Star rating system, wherein five separate quality categories earn a single star on a pass/fail system. Your two judges, Christopher Mekker and Angela Mekker, grade each category independently. Their scores are then averaged to give us a final grade which may result in half-star ratings.

Five Qualities of the Best French Onion Soup:

  • Presentation
  • Cheese
  • Broth
  • Bread
  • Onions

…and now for our reviews!


The Eagle House – 5578 Main St, Williamsville, NY 14221
  • Overall Rating 3.5 of 5 Stars
    • Christopher’s Rating 3 of 5 (for quality broth, bread and onions)
    • Angela’s Rating 4 of 5 (for quality presentation, broth, bread and onions)
    • Commentary: We could tell right away that the Eagle was having some consitency problems in the kitchen. Christopher’s soup came out with burnt-black cheese on top while Angela’s soup was “presentation perfect,” featuring an iconic cheese waterfall melted evenly around the circumference her crock. While only one of our soups was burnt, both of our provolone cheese layers were abnormally thick and difficult to pennitrate with a spoon. The beef-based broth was sweet, and obviously wine-infused. The bread was genuine French baguette and the vidalia onions were cooked well and perfectly perportioned.
