Took the family here for a quick lunch while visiting our oldest son at Paul Smith's College. Food was fresh, homemade, and well-prepared. Can't go wrong. Large menu selection as well

Forget about the tex-mex items, IT'S ALL ABOUT THE WINGS! Ask the staff what their favorite sauce is, try something new (or familiar), and you won't be disappointed. The seating area inside is bright and colorful, with a claw-machine game by the register. Convenient location...More
