Thurman Thomas' '34 Rush' restaurant coming to Batavia Downs

  • Text size: + -

Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas is opening a sports bar and restaurant at the Batavia Downs Casino.

Batavia Downs says they received hundreds of entries in a contest to name the new restaurant, and the former Buffalo Bill and casino staff picked 34 Rush.

Named after Thurman's name and position, 34 Rush will be a part of the casino's $28 million expansion project.

The groundbreaking on the expansion is expected to take place next week and 34 Rush is scheduled to open this fall. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
