Just off the main street in Saratoga Springs...Esperanto's on Caroline Street has homemade food from Mexican to Mediterranean. Not very expensive and is a place that many late night revelers head for . Their signature item is a doughboy...looks like a hot dog shaped piece of dough stuffed with chicken, ricotta and mozzarella I believe...truly addictive. Home made salsa, hummus,... More

If you are looking for an unpretentious bar which is safe, fun, happening, and is neck-deep in history, look no further in Saratoga. We had amply liquorious Highballs in the very booth that Don McClean wrote American Pie. It's not fancy. It's full of locals, and it is relaxing, fun, and cool. You can walk out at 1am and be...

We stopped in quick during an event and it was busy! The workers were fast though and were able to keep the line moving. We got 2 original Doughboys and they were amazing! We are them on the street as we walked which was perfect but they have tables inside. There is nothing like a Doughboy! Looked like they had... More

Home of the dough boy, the must-try little cheese filled bread thingy about the size of a hot dog that was really, really good. It's a Saratoga classic, especially with the students from Skidmore down the street and Siena (where I attended) down the road. And I always love to hit the local classics. The pizza is pretty good too.... More

My son and I were trying to decide what to eat when we were hanging around Saratoga recently, and we remembered...The Doughboy!! We've been eating doughboys since Esperanto first appeared about 10 years ago (little known fact--I worked there before it was Esperantos, while it was an all night hot dog stand and I was putting myself through college!) But... More

This place is on Caroline, it's a little hidden. Doesn't look like much, it's just a little pizza style joint. Decent prices - great for late night munchies. And.... Dough Boys=cheesy, chicken, creamy dough wrapped goodness. Enough said.

My fiance raves about the doughboys, but I think they are just alright. Some of the specialty items are unique. Very little sitting room. Employees were friendly.

These things are unreal! you haven't lived until you've tried them. you should get them around 230-3 after drinking a bunch downtown, that's when they taste the most delicious!

Doughboys and burritos a good snack. Family enjoys it. One of the few places that still use good ingredients. Can really taste the different flavors in the food. Fresh chopped veggies in the different salsas are great. Pizza is unique, not the average NY style flavor.

I have only had a doughboy from here but it was amazing. I have been meaning to stop by and try something else.
