Good eats along Route 17 West

Happy 4th of July weekend, Chowhounders! Next week, Sr. & Baby Swanky and I are driving from Bear Mountain area to Rochester along Route 17 West. Any must-stops along the way? A big plus if they're kid friendly!

Also - anyone heard good things about the Munson Diner in Liberty, NY? Is it worth a side trip? Thanks so much!

    The only place that I can think of is the Roscoe Diner. It is OK. I have had some good dinners and lunches there. There are few places right off of the road on the trip that you are doing.

      Wow - nothing? I'd hate to assume that 17 is a culinary wasteland!

        Nothing. Nothing. A few chains in Binghamton when you split onto 81.

          I drove back and forth many times on Route 17 between Orange County and BGM on my way to college, and although I usually wasn't stopping for food, the couple of times I did it was just at a diner or fast food place. Maybe there are some hidden gems a few minutes off 17 here or there, but I haven't heard of any, and there don't seem to be any immediately along the road.
