Fantastic food served by people who see food as the ultimate creative expression. This place is not high brow and is about good food pure and simple. Clearly loved by locals... A tourist would not likely land here-- it is as personal as you can get. Go online around mid day to check the day's menu (sourced locally as possible)... More

This restaurant should be number 1 in Saranac Lake... even in the Lake Placid area. Number 2 does not give justice to the overall experience there. This restaurant is a little shack, with only two tables inside. However you can order and take out. Best is to stay there and chat with the adorable owners. There is no alcohol served... More

I will admit: when I first walked in, I had NO IDEA how things "worked" here and was a bit flustered. But the smell of the food kept me there. I had stumbled in when they had first opened for the day and the owners kindly explained how things are: you call in or place your order, and then ((gasp))... More

What a find! This place is for sale and it kind of saddens me because it's awesome. The food is great. My husband and I got the burgers, fries, and mac-n-cheese for our children. Our children are picky mac-n-cheese eaters and they loved it. My husband and I ate some too and thought it was so good. We highly recommend... More

Once again we had a truly great meal. We all loved everything we had; fish-n-chips, gyros, veggie reuben, and smoked corned beef reuben. I found the veggie reuben incredible and the kids loved it too. The best ingredients and time in preparation make it all wonderful. We ordered ahead when I realized it was going to one of those days... More

We made a mid winter visit to Saranac, travelling with a dog and unable to leave alone in the hotel room, we decided to get takeout. Ordered over the phone and dropped by to pick up our order. Very friendly visit with the owner. Food ready promptly. We both had Reubens with home prepared pastrami. The best we've ever had,... More

We called for take-out, and had fantastic meals. I had the Reuben sandwich--a standard from which one normally doesn't expect much, but this one was filled with by far the best smoked corned-beef brisket that I've ever had. The jaeger schnitzel likewise was fantastic, the flavors were terrific, and the portions were particularly generous given the reasonable cost. A great... More

The menu is really good. I had a gyro, but not like the gyro you know. This gyro was more of a chef's gyro and it was very good. Soup was excellent. There are only 3 tables in the restaurant so the main business is take out, but it will be some of the best take out you have ever... More

I'm sure the food here is good. Or their is really a high concentration of people with really poor beer saturated taste buds in saranac lake. I walked in to the restaurant with one table taken, and the other empty. The kid behind the grill told me it was a one hour. I immediately felt that I was being racially... More

1 hour waits can easily be expected when food is cooked fresh to order, and several people have phoned in their orders. And yes we probably racially profiled you if you were white. Your instincts are spot on. Thank you for your prejudiced review- and for leaving my restaurant. More
