Chicken riggies is a Utica thing. Itís on every menu in every restaurant. I live in the Near Albany now and Iíll never see it around here. And most people have no clue what it is.

Wheatfields in saratoga and Clifton Park have chicken Riggies as does demonicos in Clifton park. Both a good but not quite as good as some places I've had in western ny. As for my favorite diner, crazy Ottos in Herkimer is by far my favorite. Best burgers I've had. Actually drove there today for breakfast and then took a stop at bass pro. 2 hour drive for me but well worth it.

I hunted the hills of the old mohawk Highland game club. Best hunting I've ever had the pleasure of hunting. And coming down to ottos after a morning sit was always and still a pleasure.

Good 'Ole  Circle E Diner, Hancock NY

Not as good as it used to be, but still good coffee there.


(I know some guy's like to stop at Apps in Cleveland after a day of fishing, for a beverage or two.)
My boots on some ice...A line down a hole... Some fish on the screen....Winter is Good !!


When In Doubt.......Don't Head Out !!

Trap you are right. Can't beat Flo's for the price or quantity of food. That big breakfast is enough for two. I usually make a sandwich with my toast & bacon to take on the ice.
