“Local success.”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

This place has been around for along time and I think it's success is due to its ala carte type menu and no frills service.

“A Utica tradition”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

You can't come to Utica without standing in line at Voss's for a hot dog and fries, or one of their barbecues. Everything is carry out. Eat in your car. But the lines are always long, as much for nostalgia as anything, but the food is simple but good.

“A fun slice of old Americana”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

Voss's is a traditional walk up, take out BBQ. Sit at a picnic table on the pavement of eat in your car. The lines can be huge but are worth the wait. The food is simple & satisfying. The fish sandwich on Fridays (only) is so good and if you like BBQ they have pork, beef, ham - all BBQed and on an old fashioned hamburger bun. They're famous for the hot dogs, with chilli, onions, all ways to load up and indulge. Don't forget to finish with soft ice cream or a thick milkshake.

“A seasonal must!”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

If you don't mind standing in line for the food, or if you hit it just right, you have got to make this part of the seasonal tradition. Excellent!
