    Clark's Ale House: best roast beef ever!!

    by kooka3 Written Jul 2, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a pub, and they have 1 thing on the menu - Roast Beef Sandwiches. The beef is carved thin right in front of you. They will put on onion if you want and give you choices of great spicy mustards. Enjoy!

    Erawan Thai: unlikely spot for great Thai food

    by kooka3 Written Jul 2, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For a small place that looks like a hole-in-the-wall sort of place from the road, this has the most amazing Thai food around! It's been ranked as the best Thai food in Syracuse in the Syracuse paper. The place is casual so go as you are. The menu is extensive, prices are good, and service is quick.

    Favorite Dish: This makes the best Thai Spring Rolls I've ever had - uncooked fresh veggies (lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, etc) wrapped in amazing rice paper (I think!). The pad thai was terrific, as was the Thom Ka soup.

    Dominick's: Some of the best Italian food in Syracuse

    by kooka3 Updated Jul 2, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This has one of the nicest/friendliest atmospheres in town. Add that to their huge portions, consistently excellent food, and very reasonable prices, and you have a winner! On the weekends, their is usually a wait, which is a testament to the quality of the food there - people keep going back, and no one seems to mind waiting for a table.

    Favorite Dish: I haven't had anything that wasn't excellent.

    The Brooklyn Pickle: A must for great sandwiches!

    by kooka3 Written Jul 2, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I used to live about 2 blocks from this place, and I was addicted to the food here! This is a no-nonsense, not-many-frills place to eat. They put their efforts into making good food and giving good service, and the restaurants are clean and well maintained. There are 2 locations on Burnet Ave and on West Genesee Street. They both have tables inside and out.

    Favorite Dish: The sandwiches are HUGE!! Breads are always fresh. They also make their own soups, and they have come up with some amazing recipes. Try the Neptune Stew, which has seafood (shrimp and clams, i think) with vegies like mushrooms, onions, and green/red peppers. Think chowder meets marinara. Try their beer & cheddar soup, too.

    Pastabilities: not just pasta

    by kooka3 Updated Sep 7, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a really neat restaurant. It's very busy at lunch, but they get people through quickly. It's a step up from a buffet. They have about 6 salad dishes every day, a few pasta dishes, and a couple soups. You can have 1, 2, or 3 dishes. They also have fresh breads. It's all set out in front of you so you can see what all it has in it - just tell them which dishes you want and they'll serve it.

    Favorite Dish: The dishes change a lot, so you never really know what they're serving. All the ingredients are really fresh, and they have a good variety. I like the Thai curry pasta they make.

    Speghetti Warehouse: Spaghetti Warehouse

    by kooka3 Written Jul 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a national chain, which I just found out. This is the only one in New York, and it's worth going to. The decor is great - an old cabose (yes, you can eat in it!), old carousel horses, etc. I've never had bad food or bad service there.

    Favorite Dish: Try the lasagna or the ravoli.

    Dinosaur Barbeque: Don't miss the Dinosaur

    by kooka3 Updated Jul 5, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant has such an interesting atmosphere. It attracts an eclectic crowd from business men in suits to bikers in leather and everyone in between. The restaurant is divided into 2 rooms - one with the bar, a riser for live bands, tables, booths, etc. The other is more of "the bbq pit".

    The Dinosaur is amazingly popular (the wait can sometimes be an hour or more on weekends), and rightfully so. The food is consistently superior and you meet such fun people there.

    Favorite Dish: I've never had a bad meal there. Anything involving barbeque (ribs, particularly) is great. Go figure.

    Their side dishes are also great - and made fresh. Try the cajun corn and mashed potatoes.

    If you the type of person who can't decide what to eat, they have a bunch of samplers, so you can get 2 or 3 different dishes.

    Dinosaur Bar-B-Que: Best BBQ north of the Mason Dixon

    by hoser_71 Written May 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were about an hour out of Syracuse and we drove in for this place and it was worth the drive. This is a blues place that does BBQ justice. We were there on a Saturday night and the wait was 1.5 hours long, and it was still worth it. Outstanding food and a cool atmosphere makes this a must stop.

    Favorite Dish: I had the Ribs/beef brisket/chicken combo and it didn't disapoint. Outstanding ribs and brisket.

    We also shared a great plate of fried green tomatos.

    Empire Brewery in Armory Square, Little Thai House on Erie Blvd., King David's on Marshall Street (Syracuse Univ.)
    At Empire there is great microbrewed beer, my favorite is Amber Ale. Lunch is very reasonable for large portions. Thai House has plenty of vegetarian options. King David's has take out, and you can't beat the $2.99 Falafel pita sandwich.

    Favorite Dish: Empire has authentic Cajun food, Thai House has good Thai food, and King David's has great Falafel, Baklava, Hummous, etc.

    Southern style BBQ and blues under a foot of snow? No problem!! Here you can get ribs and other grill delicacies while enjoying the music. Live at times. Owners were a bunch of bikers and the local Harley dealer is just above the restaurant. Don't forget to take a sample of their BBQ sauce home!!

    Favorite Dish: Ribs

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Restaurant: The Olive Garden, and Itchibans Favorite Menu Item: At the Olive Garden all the Pasta's are
    delicious. Also they serve some nice deserts. Itchibans is a more elegants chinease food resturants.
    For the O.G. around 10-15 dollars a plate for dinner plates. Portions are generous and
    atmosphere is pleasent. Itchibans is over 15 dollars but worth it for a much more elegant resturant.
    Location: The O.G. is Located in the town of Clay outside the city, right in front of the Great Northren Mall (near Rt 31). Itchibans is between the village of Liverpool and Syracuse city.

    Favorite Dish: At the Olive Garden all the Pasta's are
