    Re: What style of restaurant?

    Iím surprised nobody said a good fried chicken place like Popeyes,Chicken Delight or Chicken Galore. I used to own a fried chicken place in NJ and was very busy, we delivered though and that sucks.I still buy and sell restaurant equipment and actually just bought out a whole fried chicken place with some really nice equipment that might find its way into the restaurant .

    Re: What style of restaurant?

    Unless there is a gas station there as well, I don't think any food place would do well. IMHO, people driving between NY Metro and Syracuse (and all stops in between) only want to stop once.
    I'd love to see a good old 24 hour diner and grab the people like myself that can't stand the Roscoe Diner but you'd probably go broke. Good luck!

    There actually used to be gas pumps there but they were taken out by The state in 2010 .
    I have no interest in a gas station,but I think good food in a fun atmosphere with clean restrooms will do well there. I have about 50 truck drivers I know personally who can't wait for it to open . Most truck drivers don't like getting off exits if they don't have to,that's why the places that were at the light in Parksville were so busy.
    As far as travelers many are just looking to get out and stretch their legs use the rest room and get something quick to eat.
    As far as 24 hours ,no way not me,unless I can put my own toll booth at the blinking light!lol!

    I haven't been to the Roscoe Diner in over 20 years , I remember them being slightly expensive,but they seem to do a good business..

    One of the places I have the fondest memories growing up was the Red Apple �� restaurant on old 17 In the Southfields section of Tuxedo,when it was in its heyday . That was alway a mandatory stop for my family when I was a kid in the 60's when we were heading upstate from Jersey. It was a tradition and always exciting as a little kid with all the people and buses and good food . Sadly it closed years ago and fell into shambles. I don't even know if it's still standing ,but that place was an icon in its time. I actually just ordered a book written by the original owners daughter about growing up running it in its prime.

    Can your "people " meet me with cash at Midnite to exercise option 6?lol!

    The general consensus is a Good Coffee and donut shop ,that's our first choice too.

    I forgot option 7
    A fresh Trout Fish fry joint ! I'll need to hire a first mate for my Hyde to help me seine the West Branch at night
    And look out for comparadun as we stock up through Bard Parker .....

    Sounds like a plan. Iíll reseve a table now but Iíll only pay for a small coffee

    Seriously though good luck with it. Thereís a place in ocean City Nj called Oves that makes fresh donuts. They only make like 5 or 6 different ones but man do they do a brisk business

    Re: What style of restaurant?

    The Roscoe Diner 30 years ago was great ....maybe a little expensive. However the French toast and home fries were awesome. Not so good anymore. God luck with your venture

    Thanks Mac. Yeah a good donut place does well , some Dunkin Donuts are so busy you think theyíre giving away $100 bills. Iíll stop at them , but I wonít wait in a crazy line.

    Itís a tough choice. I have equipment to open almost any style place
    Just want it to be fun and simple , and sort of profitable.

    Thanks! Iíve only been in the Roscoe diner a handful of times in the last 30 years and it seemed ok. I like old fashioned vintage stainless steel diners . I like the history and nostalgia of Them. I like old fashion hot dog joints too.
