Make yourself at home
Welcome to Christes! We are a family friendly restaurant serving delicious home cooked meals that were passed down from generation to generation. When dining with us please, pull up a chair and make yourself at home.
Community we love
We have proudly resided in the Southgate Plaza for 12 years and couldn't be happier. Being surrounded by our home town community of West Seneca, NY has been a blessing and we will continue to serve you for as long as we can.
About our Family…
In 1930, Christe Stefanovich came to America from a small Macedonian village in Yugoslavia. His dream was to create a future for himself, and send for his wife and son to join him in America.
In 1951, Christe was able to purchase a piece of property right here in West Seneca at the southwest corner of Union and Clinton. Christe’s remained in that location until a fire destroyed the building in 1976. Christe’s son, Karl, ventured out on his own in 1970 and purchased a hot dog stand in Lackawanna. That restaurant, which his daughter Diana helped operate, and eventually took over, thrived for more than 30 years. Diana then opened Christe’s in the Elma Village Plaza. That location moved to its current home at the Southgate Plaza, back in West Seneca, where it all began. Diana along with her sons, Brian and Jason, now operate the restaurant and carry on the fourth generation of hospitality.
We hope you enjoy your visit. Please, make yourself at home!
