Roscoe Diner

SR-17, Roscoe, NY - (607) 498-4405
Posted By Cheryl DeDecker on 1/27/2010 9:36:00 PM
My husband and I stopped in here for lunch on a cold day of geocaching in the area. The diner was recommended by a friend and I was skeptical after reading previous reviews. We concur that the overall service we experienced lacked friendliness. We did find one very nice waitress, but unfortunately she did not serve our area.

The food was basic diner fare but my burger was cooked perfectly medium-well as I requested (from my experience, this is no small feat). My husband ordered the "Happy Waitress" (kind of ironic, really) which was a grilled cheese with bacon. He also had beef barley soup. He found the soup to be quite good, but the bacon in his sandwich came back "wimbly" despite asking for it to be crisp. When he told the waitress about it, she said, "Oh."

If in the area again I am likely to try a different restaurant.

Real turkey makes the club sandwich at Roscoe a good version of a diner classic.

There is a section of the menu devoted to wraps, and they are attractively assembled.

It's hard to find this these days in restaurants.  Crunchy outside and warm and soft on the inside.

This paper thin beauty can be served by itself, or topped with runny eggs.

The rice pudding is homemade (and, in fact, rice pudding is often the only homemade dessert in diners).  Roscoe's pudding is popular, although today's specimen was not good.

The diner itself looks more suited to returning a book or renewing a drivers license than eating.

We took this picture on a trip upstate over a dozen years ago. Little has changed at the truly famous Roscoe Diner, outside or in.
