We usually stop in beautiful Roscoe, NY, on our way up when visiting family in Syracuse. http://roscoeny.com/ Pretty sure it's not classified as fine dining, but it's perfect for a pit stop!

Thanks, mrslarkin! Is there a particular establishment you like in Roscoe?

The Roscoe Diner is pretty much our regular stop. Buffalo Zach's Cafe looks like a lot of fun. http://www.buffalozachscafe...

Yes! Route 80, and then 81.

Maybe I went to the wrong diner in Roscoe, but it seemed like a standard, (and overpriced) diner to me. Did I make a wrong turn? Definitely not trying to start any trouble, but seems like the crowd on Food52 often seeks out something unique and innovative, and I wouldn't say the RD fit that description, if it's where I stopped last summer.

Roscoe Diner is definitely not a unique and innovative eatery. But after a very long drive with 2 hungry-cranky kids, sometimes all you need is a quick bite, a clean bathroom, and a place to stretch. The Roscoe Diner has been perfect for us. We've always had good, standard diner food and friendly service. Also, that part of Route 17 is crazy-scenic along the Beaverkill River, and we like to support the local economy when we're passing through.

Hello all,

I just wanted to thank everyone for their suggestions. In the end, we got on the road later than planned, so we stopped in a city called Binghamton,smack dab in the middle of our journey. We stumbled into a restaurant called the Lost Dog Cafe (http://www.lostdogcafe...), and it turned out to be delicious! (Not surprisingly, sooooo much cheaper than NYC, we had some sticker shock when the bill arrived.) I recommend it to anyone passing through Route 80-81.

Thanks again :)

Yay! Glad you found something. It looks really cute. That opening quote on their website is awesome.
