Salad bar with Carousel Horse - Colonie?
My friends remind me that the building was originally Aunt Jemima's Pancake House and then became Coco's when it had the carousel. It was one of the first buffet restaurants in the Albany area as I recall. It's location was as I stated in my earler posting. I hope this helps you.
That might have been a restaurant located at the intersection of Western Av (rt 20) and Fuller Rd. I don't recall the name right now, but if that was it, it is no longer in business. The building was demolished and replaced with a Burger King and a Ninety Nine restaurant. I'll check with some other friends to see if they recall anything more exact.
If CH notifies you that they do not allow nostalgia discussions here, I suggest you post your question to the Times Union Table Hopping blog. http://blog.timesunion.com/tablehopping/
