Cooks at the family-owned Hammi's BBQ slather tender cuts of pork, beef, and chicken in a signature dry rub before slow-smoking morsels over cherry wood. Skilled hands sculpt burger patties and pull pork on site, piling platters with honey-glazed ribs and texas brisket showered in house-made barbecue sauce alongside fresh-sliced curly fries and cornbread accomplices. Red, wooden stools speckle the restaurant's patio for outdoor dining, and the restaurant dispatches its mobile barbecue truck to serve up meals at concerts, festivals, special events, and the North Pole.
Dedicated to providing hearty meals at affordable prices for Syracuse's working people, Cosmo's Cafe's owner and his dedicated staff plate ample portions of classic American breakfast and lunch fare. Cosmo documents his culinary adventures online, making evident his passion for cooking and love for the café. Breakfast feasts sizzle in skillets throughout the day, served to-go or at tables under the pleasant glare of the café's hanging plants and richly hued green walls, and lunch-box specials allow diners to pair deli sandwiches with salads or homemade soups. On Fridays, fish sandwiches served with slaw and fries satisfy dietary requirements for cuisine often misconstrued as vegetarian cuisine, preventing diners from having to eat vintage hot rods or the innards of pinball machines.
Situated along the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, Taste of Wine Country Cafe beckons visitors to stop in between tastings to kick back and grab a bite to eat from its menu of homemade baked goods, soups, and desserts. Inside, take a seat at one of the wooden tables before ordering an item from the breakfast menu—served all day. Other dishes employ local ingredients, such as salads topped with dressings made using Buttonwood Grove Winery wines and quesadillas filled with vegetables sautéed in butternut-squash-seed oil from Stony Brook WholeHeartedFoods. Travelers of all kinds are welcome thanks to the café's ample parking lot, which invites motorcycles, cars, campers, and space chariots.
At Label 7, fresh ingredients such as crisp shaved fennel and gruyere cheese garnish entrees inspired by the light, healthy cuisine of California's Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Wicker chairs flank tables in the softly lit indoor dining room. Oversized white flowerboxes stand guard along the perimeter of a canal-side patio, where a brigade of umbrellas shields patrons from splashing during nearby diners’ attempts to literally wade through the wine list.
Since 1945, Don's Original has been stifling stomach rumblings with varied menus consisting of famous original sandwiches, not-yet-famous sandwiches, plates, and sandwich-complementing sides. Don's Original maintains a come-as-you-are atmosphere, allowing customers to order comfort eats free from the chaos of family-member-attended singles' masquerade balls. Savor your selection while watching sandwich engineers manufacture mouthwatering masterpieces at the inside counter, or take your order to the patio and dine at one of Don's outdoor picnic tables during warmer months (not available at the Brighton location).
The owners of Greece/Penfield Hots report that at least one customer per day requests the recipe for their house hot sauce. It has even happened at weddings. The sauce has been a guarded family recipe for more than 70 years, and its tongue-tingling blend of spices actually inspired the owners to open their own burger and sandwich joint. Here this peppery concoction serves as an ideal condiment for the eatery's burgers, subs, loaded hot dogs, and gargantuan rubbish plates.
