  1. I wish you good luck in Batavia.

    We were there a few years ago and NOTHING was memorable.

    We went to a wedding in the best restaurant (??) in Batavia and it really sucked.

    1. That's exactly why I'm asking for some chow tips;) I had some awful bar food at the Holiday Inn restaurant last time I was there a few years ago....trying to avoid that experience a 2nd time....

      1. I lived in Batavia about 10 years ago and Pontillo's Pizza was good. I know the Rochester locations are still well-received.

        1. I can see that this is a bit late for Phoenikia's trip, but I have been going to work off and on in Batavia for the past several years. I have had some pretty good meaty meals at Alex's Place at 9322 Park Road, just down from Batavia Downs. The steak salad was good. I liked their wings and soups and desserts. Sometimes the BBQ is too slathered in sauce but they're very friendly, the place is quite nice inside, always crowded and prices are modest. They close at 9 p.m.

          Because of the early closing and my frequent late arrival, I find myself going to Sporto's, official name Sport of Kings, a 24-hour diner at 419 W. Main Street, Batavia NY 14020. I've had foods involving grilled chicken breast and they've been excellent. I once had a nice strawberry cream pie, a special. It's not fancy but is very clean and extremely reasonable. I usually get out for around $10 with a beverage and dessert.

          I will post back when I've found something else tasty to add.

          1. Did you ever find anything in Batavia? Goint this weekend. mgebs
