It's a five and a half hour drive to Syracuse NY from my house in New Hampshire. It ends up being longer because you have to stop a couple of times along the way, to eat and to.. you know.
We were driving along through Hoosick Falls NY when an interesting sign caught my attention. I tried to read it, and finally came up with Man Of Kent.
And the parking lot was full. The place was on a curve, and as we drove around, the parking lot just kept getting bigger, and even the "overflow" parking lots were full. "Is that still for Man of Kent?" my Mom asked.
"Yeah," I replied, looking over quickly. "We're going to have to check that out for the ride home tomorrow. Any place that's THAT busy has got to be good."
This morning, over breakfast in the hotel, I did an internet search for Man of Kent and found their website, then I checked over on Yelp! for reviews. MOK consistently got five stars and some of the reviews were very recent (like last week recent). Next I checked out their menu. (Here's the page for Main dishes.)We decided we'd check it out on the way home. We figured we'd get there about mid-afternoon. We hoped the place would be empty (because the reviews said they were always busy.)
an appetizer (Dynabites, which were truly dynamite), and then ordered dinner. Everything was delicious, and we'd actually drive almost three hours to eat there again.
So, exactly HOW MUCH did I love this place?
