Cattaraugus is a very small town with very friendly people and a few small businesses and a dollar general. They keep the town well taken care of and secure. The police could be a bit nicer but they got to be strict I guess. Would highly recommended this town.

Food bought at restaurants here is the same as anywhere (burger, fries, wings, pizza, etc...)
There is not much here. Just some parks, that are great to visit in the summer and fall.
