Saratoga Trip 8/13/07 and Trip report from 2006
Hello all ,
On Monday the 14th of August Coney Island Lou joined our group of Horse racing fans from the local K of C to visit the Saratoga Racetrack and enjoy a day of gambling , and as I found out some decent eating .
The day was beuatiful with a slighly overcast sky , the temperature topping off at about 80 in the sun .
Great racing and a few longshots made winners of many in our group of 42 . A trifecta was hit and a few daily doubles , so the trip back was jovial to say the least.
What Coney Island Lou and I found was a good Nathans Hot Dog eatery below the grandstands . Reminded me of the original taste found on Surf Ave in Brooklyn . Many of these fast food Nathans in malls and Rest stops just do not cut it , but I thought this one was a find , and the dogs were great .
Perhaps I enjoyed them a little more than Lou , he thought they were ok , but I have experienced many a under performing Nathans dog recently around the Northeast . I was presently surprised . I decided to stay with two plain and they were tasty .
I will certainly look to stop by the eatery next time I'm at Saratoga for the races . *** 1/2 out of 4 stars.
