Tail O' The Pup

Located halfway between Lake Placid,and Saranac Lake, NY
Tail O' The Pup is a place I've been longing to stop at. But it seems I never have the time to stop or it's way too early in the morning and it's closed.

A few weeks ago, Richard and I were heading by and it was absolutely pouring rain. Plus it was 10:15 a.m. and the place opened at 11.

As we ran past the list of specials, we got inside and bought a couple of cups of coffee and met the owner. Charming fellow who was worried about customers in the deluge.

I just loved the outdoor counter seating, waiting for a dry day.

Had it been a little later, I would have tried a picnic seat under the tents that seemed to be keeping everything nice and dry. The menu of the Tail O' The Pup is full of barbecue, chicken, burgers and dogs. Click here to see it. Next time I'm in the mood for barbecue, I'm heading back here. It's only a few hours south!

Can't beleive there is another person who has seen this place. It is definitely the road less travelled.
Was there last winter, and unfortunately it was closed.

Looks like a great place to stop... don't you hate when you're ready to stop but the coolest looking restaurant is not ready for you?
