Even though saranac lake is in the Adirondacks the food was just unacceptable. Dirty and slimmy but the food was ok just because it was so greasy kinda tasted good but not going back unless I want a heart attack

The kickoff to Saranac Lake's winter carnival began last night (with fireworks!), and town was crazy busy. I ate dinner at Borracho Taco with my family. Dispite the numerous customers the service was fabulous, and the food was delicious. We got a seat as soon as our food was ready, it seems that the cook time and seating were planned... More

Good food and some of the best wings in town. Always quick and usually friendly. And it's opened late!!! Take out is done in under 10 minutes. And they have fried pickles and fried cheesecake!

A friend and I went into Dew Drop's Grille and Pizzeria on a busy Thursday night after the arts festival. It looked good with brick oven pizza and beer specials. We were given a choice of sitting inside or out on the deck and chose the latter which overlooked the river. It was a nice atmosphere! Our server took our... More

We gave up on left bank, service was so bad. So we came here. Server was pleasant and fast. Food was tasty and portions were fair size. Will definitely come back.

We tried Borracho about 3 times and the first was good, but the following 2 take out dinners were a bit soggy. I do wish them success though!

Excellent tacos when you're craving mexican. We've been back several times and brought family that was visiting with us. We have now tried tacos, burritos, and chimichangas and all were equally good! Thanks for a moderately priced taco place!
