Driving [Niagara Falls, NY to Lake George]
We'll be driving from Niagara Falls, NY to Lake George. Any chow worthy take out, pizza, markets, etc? In Lake George, we'll most likely be staying in the area one night, we're OK with cheap and cheerful and even better is take out. Of course, a libation with a view on the Lake would be nice.
Which lake? You'll pass quite a few.
A standard recommendation is Dinosaur Barbecue in Syracuse. The Syracuse location is always busy, so a late lunch is highly recommended, unless you're there for an early dinner. There's also a branch in Troy.
There's also Elderberry Pond between Auburn and Skaneateles.
I don't know how your tastes lie, but here are two opposites.
Nothing great in Lake George, There a few pizza places in the village itself. nothing that cheap. Mario Restaurant is OK meals are in the $20 range. If you go south on 9 to Glensfalls there is every fastfood and chain Restaurants you would want
Other than Panera, is there any type of diner/fast food that is healthier and would fit salads, soups and warm sandwiches?
(Anywhere btw NFalls and Amsterdam, NY)
In Glens Falls by Aviation ave or street there's Friendlys, red lobster , Oliver garden supper K mark outback and going down aviation south of US9 is Golden correll
