This place is ideal if you want to grab lunch in Lake Placid. It has that local charm I really enjoy when entering cities and towns along the ride. Spotless clean, friendly staff, good prices and tasty food. Pay attention to the time, they close at 2pm on Saturdays and are closed on Sundays. Isn't it good when you go... More

There lasagna is the best. We order it by the tray for parties or large family gatherings. You will not be disappointed with any item from the menu. There meats are good too. Try the filets for grilling. If you stop by for lunch, try the meatball sandwich, Italian sausage sandwich is also excellent. The seating area is small, so... More

The meatball sub is too good to be true. I also love the roast beef, and the spaghetti and meatballs is delicious. Everything I've ever tried here has been great. Nice place with great staff. Definitely family friendly.

Chef Buddy's is under new ownership but lives up to the Original Chef Buddy. New and improved location, wonderful staff, and the same great food.

You'll be a fan as well once you've tried their sandwiches. The rolls come in from NJ frozen and baked on premises. Meats are fantastic as well. Put it all together and you've got the Chef Buddy ultimate. Fresh basil, mozzarella, sun dried tomatoes, and fresh deli meats with the delicious crunch of that bread roll. Yum. Homemade sausages, meatballs,... More
