Joe’s Service Center – 1602 Elmwood Ave.

About Joe’s Service Center:

Joe’s Service Center is an auto repair shop, NYS inspection station, convenient store and Sunoco gas station all wrapped into one 65 year old family business owned and operated by Mark Kubiniec. 

We’d be happy to help you with your automotive and fuel needs. We inspect cars, fix brakes, replace tires, repair exhaust, figure out check engine light causes, replace lights, mirrors, have gas etc… every day. We are learning all about alternative fuels and systems – hybrids, electric, regenerative braking, etc… all the time.  

We’re learning the new environmentally responsible way of doing things just as our community is. We were a host site of the late, great Buffalo CarShare and are a current supporter of ReddyBike which has put 2 new sites in 2019 on Amherst Street.

We sponsor music and art projects, tree planting and environmental clean-ups. We participate in the Grant Amherst Business Association and the Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts. We clean up the Scajaquada Creek and have adopted two of the Elmwood Avenue NYS Department of Transportation clean-up sites by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. We clean up and plant up our corner of Amherst Street and Elmwood Avenue to add color, freshness and vitality to our urban streetscape.

As a result Joe’s Service Center is about more than pumping gas and fixing cars. It’s about local business, civic responsibility and service to the community. Stop by and meet us, enjoy our quirky artcar the AutoMobius, try out our products and services, and take a look at our website at

Call us with any questions at 716-877-8168. We look forward to seeing you soon!!
