Voss' Bar-B-Q

Route 5A, Yorkville, NY - (nop) hon-e
Posted By pat pirillo on 8/18/2011 9:14:00 PM
As you drive up, you will see a full parking lot and lots of people waiting for their orders. I usually order two pork BBQ sandwiches with extra sauce and onions, along with a thin black raspberry milk shake. Shakes are offered in both thin and thick versions.

The meat is tender and moist, the sauce is spicy, full of flavor. The fries are ordinary; you are better off ordering a second sandwich. Prices are extremely low: a BBQ sandwich is $2.30, a steak sandwich is $4.00. Equally popular are their grilled hot dogs, especially when covered with their chili. Then there is the ice cream, and shakes and sundaes. The chili, BBQ sauce, and ice cream are made on site.

The ham BBQ sandwich is almost as good as the turkey BBQ sandwich.

Turkey BBQ sandwiches, with extra sauce, every time!  One of my all-time favorite meals.

These beauties get a few turns on the griddle until they develop a nice crust.

Pretty standard fries, but they are elevated when dunked into the unique BBQ sauce.

My 'heavy' chocolate malt.  Voss offers 'thin' and 'heavy' options and this one was excellent.  It gave me a most pleasant surprise when I discovered some undissolved nuggets of malt powder at the bottom.

The Bar-B Q Pork sandwich is pretty good, especially on that buttered and griddled bun and slathered in homemade bar-b-q sauce!

Griddling the buttered buns is key to the taste experience at Voss'.

On this rare balmy November day in the Utica area, some people are dining outside, others are waiting for their plastic letters to be called.

My 'go-to' order nearly every time I visit: a Mexi-Dog and BBQ Ham sandwich with extra sauce.  There has been talk that Voss switched from the Honest John hot dog to the Rochester-based Zweigle's brand.  I did taste a difference, but it was still a really good dog.

Stand in line, get your number (or letter), place your order and wait for them to call it out through the window.  I still get excited whenever I hear mine!
