Binghamton NY---Where to Eat?

I'm going on a business trip to Binghamton NY in a few weeks. I've seen in threads here about spiedes----any places these days you'd recommend to try one? Where else should I eat and what are some of the other things that the area's known for?

    Like Signman said, Sharkey's is the place to go for spiedies. There really is no other local specialty that I can think of other than Cornell style chicken. Phil's Chicken House reviewed on this site is a good place to go. If you like steakhouse fare, Christie's Steakhouse and Grill is another decent restaurant.

    I've been to Sharkey's a few times---to me it's nothing special, but you've got to try spiedies if you're in the "Southern Tier". Phil's Chicken House is quite good---don't miss the Chicken Soup (simple and delicious). Tony's Texas Hots (on the site) is of its own time and exceptional. Don't miss the weiner sauce!!!

    Oneonta is about 60 miles from Binghamton, but Brooks BBQ does have good chicken. Phil's Chicken House in Endicott, mentioned by stapnepa, is closer.
    Lupo's has good spiedies, too.

    Unfortunately I don't think I'll have time or transport to leave town but thanks for the suggestions. I think I should be able to fit both Sharkey's and Lupo's in for spiedes. Planning on taking a few bottles of saucew home topo---------any recommendations?

    Salamida's and Lupo's sauce are both available in local grocery stores.
    Are you staying in downtown Binghamton or in one of the "suburbs?"

    Not sure what it's considered-----I think it might be downtown though, near Webster Street Park. Any decent eating around there? I should be able to be more precise in the location in a few days.

    On my whirlwind CNY trip last summer, I ate at Phil's, and grabbed a spiedie at Lupo's. I thought the Cornell Chicken at Phil's was quite good, and it's a very pleasant, "homey" place to eat. As I recall, Lupo's was more of a fast food-type place in that you walk up and place your order, and there is little or no seating. But I might be wrong about that...it's been awhile. I really enjoyed my trip to that area. Binghamton is kind of depressed, but I just loved Ithaca, and the Syracuse area.

    There are several Lupo's--one location in Endwell is essentially a take out place. There is another location on State St in Binghamton that has seating (at least it did last time I was there)--not much for atmosphere.

    There are some interesting places to eat in downtown Binghamton--Lost Dog Cafe, Whole in the Wall and Buffy's Burritos come to mind.
    The Vestal Parkway, a few miles down the road, has many chain restaurants but a family owned Mexican restaurant called Los Tapatios is near the SUNY campus and is quite good.
