The iron works grill in Troy is excellent but no indoor
seating.
PJ bar b qusa good but no atmosphere (Malta)
Dinosaur Bar b que in Troy a lot of people like but I am not
a fan.

I will be at your place with the wife.

Congratulations!

Being self employed is exciting, challenging, time consuming, and at times very hard and stressful, but it is also one of the most rewarding paths one can take with their life.

I wish you all the best success.
Congratulations! All the best to you!

Would you loosen your restrictions if he promises to grow his own vegetables (organically, of course)?
Best of luck to you Jonesy ...

Sorry Kmed, we are actually working on establishing our social media outlets as we speak.
CRAP!  
CT Charlie : 6/24/2022 9:16 pm : link
We moved to the Albany area in 2019 – just in time for COVID – and now we're moving four hours away. If we can't sell our house, though (SE of Albany) I'll still be here when you open though my wife will have started her new job near Cape Cod.

right now and the next months.

Great BBQ is hard to come by. When my daughter had a winter soccer tournament in Syracuse, I think it was, we all piled into a DinoSaur BBQ: wood floors, wooden counters and chairs, two levels, steep little climb to a smallish parking lot and store front, if that sounds right to you Upstaters. At the end of a full day of games, it was delish. But I wonder if its proliferation of venues (franchise or company owned?, and there's one near us in Stamford, but the last one we went to there wasn't nearly as good, authentic, as I remembered it from Syracuse.

If you keep to your dream, they will come.

Careful you don’t know the takeout order he wants in return. It might end it before it begins 😂
That's exciting news!

Syracuse is the original Dinosaur and far predates the others. When I first went there (1993 or 94ish) it was a bona fide biker joint, which happened to have some of the best food I’ve ever tasted.

The only other location I’ve tried is Rochester, which is very good, but I can’t imagine any of them matching the experience of the original.
