I shouldve walked out when the guy wearing an apron started hacking up a lung. I was told that he only washed dishes...shouldve left. The fajitas were aweful. No flavor just meat and overly-oily onions and peppers. Nothing served with it to add zest. And nobody checked up on me until the last few bites. So my water was also empty for over 10 min. The only reason it gets a 2 rating is the decent chili. Obtw there was only one other diner so dont think i am too harsh on service. There is a real dearth of places to eat on this exit but you really should keep driving.

Almost every time we go to Ithaca, we have lunch at The Rose. We take visitors there for meals--lunch or dinner--as well. We have not been disappointed, and they usually select the salad bar, with its set of hot dish offerings, just as we do. On occasion, I have selected a special dessert, as well. Always, their food is first-rate! Their waitpersons are delightful as well!

Typical bar food is good choice here, This is an American restaurant that has Italian & Mexican items on the menu as well. Stay away from these choices. They no longer serve pizza

This is a favorite place of mine to eat. The food is always good: steaks, chicken, ribs, sandwiches and pizza. One can choose Mexican fare, Italian food, or American cuisine. Fantastic desserts abound. The salad bar includes greens, pasta and potato salads, coleslaw, veggies, pepperoni, eggs, peppers, bacon, olives, cheeses, etc. It will delight both vegetarians and omnivores. The sports bar area is mostly separate from the restaurant, but has plenty of seating for sports enthusiasts to watch the myriad of games on the TV sets. It's in a strip mall, with plenty of parking. For lunch, there is a hot buffet salad bar that is always delightful.
