        If you take 81 north to the Thruway, Syracuse offers Dinosaur Barbecue, Heid's (hotdogs, actually in Liverpool), and a variety of places on Westcott St. not too far from 90.

        If you're taking 90 into MA, there's a Peruvian and a Vietnamese restaurant in Lee.

          Heids is great, and the Hoffman Hotdogs and Coneys(white dog/weiswurst) are a legend !!!!

          By all means help michaelwild with chow suggestions along his route, but hotel recommendations are off-topic. Thanks.

            Cafe Madison in Albany, NY, (on Madison Ave. near College of St. Rose) has an outstanding breakfast/brunch menu and is definitely NOT chain.
