Had breakfast there this morning. Ample choices on the menu means something for everyone. I had the 2-2-2 Special over easy with French toast and sausage patties smothered in real maple syrup. $5.95. Service was prompt and courteous (a bit short of friendly). I travel this route often and will stop in again. Check it out and bring a friend.

The Best Friends Family Restaurant is a sort of combination family restaurant / truck stop / biker cafe / local eatery. If you drive across the bridge (over Lake Champlain) that connects Alburgh, Vermont and Rouses Point, NY you will see the Best Friends Family Restaurant just a few hundred yards after the bridge on the main highway on the New York side. My husband and I have eaten here too many times to count. We don't even mind the 40 mile drive. We usually visit on Saturday nights for their roast beef specials. They offer the junior size cut, the queen size, or the king size, with au jus gravy and all the trimmings. Very good. This is not a fancy place. It is a family-friendly local diner --- tables and booths --- with a VERY loyal repeat customer base. Sometimes the service is a little slow, but with the number of people usually in the restaurant that's understandable. People don't eat here when they are in a hurry. They eat, socialize, and often walk between tables greeting family and friends; hence, the name of the establishment. It is a nice place to stop if you are travelling. Not fancy; just filling diner food and a friendly atmosphere. They also have very good breakfasts. We feel like family when we eat in this restaurant, and we do so quite often.
