Fulton, N.Y. — Driving down 1st Street in Fulton, you might simply blink and miss Muskie’s. But you would actually be lacking out.

From the surface, this bar/restaurant appears to be like like some other home on the road. But on the within, you’ll discover low-cost drinks, tasty meals and pleasant firm.

Someone beneficial Muskie’s on our Where Syracuse Eats Facebook web page, so I met a couple of buddies there for lunch. The place is certainly a neighborhood’s hangout, however the regulars welcomed us with open arms, including us into their boisterous conversations.

We grabbed a couple of seats on the bar and have been rapidly greeted by Meghan, the enthusiastic bartender. Her power was infectious and instantly made us really feel comfy.

To begin, we ordered a spherical of drinks, one Bud Light can ($3) and two combined drinks ($4 and $4.50). The beer menu was restricted to the standard choice at most bars, with many of the mass-produced business beers alongside Mike’s Hard Lemonade and Twisted Tea.

But the liquor choice was spectacular for a small bar with surprisingly low costs. The drink particular of the day was vodka and lemonade for $3. That was one among our subsequent drinks.

Muskie’s wings was the primary merchandise we ordered ($15 for a dozen). The menu provides 17 choices, starting from dry rubs to sauce-slathered, all flavorful, delicate to spicy. Meghan allow us to cut up the dozen between two flavors. We settled on mesquite bacon BBQ and garlic pepper dry rub.

Ultimately I’d have appreciated my wings slightly crispier, however general each types had nice taste and have been juicy on the within. The BBQ was smoky and candy, with a pleasant contact of bacon. The garlic pepper was good, however may have had a bit stronger style. Both baskets got here with blue cheese and celery.

Choosing to order quite a lot of dishes to separate amongst the three of us, we additionally ordered the cowboy burger ($12) with waffle fries ($2), an order of three rooster tenders and fries ($7), and a crispy rooster wrap with home made chips ($11).

Immediately I may inform that the hamburger was made with recent meat, not frozen. That’s uncommon for bar meals. The cowboy burger got here topped with bacon, American cheese, BBQ sauce and sauteed onions. The traditional mixture labored effectively right here, with the smoky sweetness of the sauce and onions complemented by the saltiness of the bacon.

The home made rooster tenders are fairly giant and served with a sauce (or two) of your selecting. We needed completely different sauces than those we tried on our wings, so we requested the bartender for suggestions. She introduced us Jack Daniel’s sauce (their hottest), and the Sweet Heat. Both have been nice decisions for the tenders, with the Jack Daniel’s being extra on the candy aspect and the Sweet Heat having extra of a spicy kick.

The crispy rooster wrap got here with bacon, celery and honey mustard dressing. The wrap was a beneficiant measurement, simply sufficient to separate into two meals.

With every of these three dishes, we purposely selected completely different sides so we may attempt all of them. Out of the home made chips, common fries and waffle fries, the waffle fries have been the winner by a slim margin. The home made chips have been a pleasant addition to any meal, being each softer within the middle and crispy on the perimeters with simply the correct amount of salt. The common fries have been simply that. Regular.

Since it was a Friday after we visited, Muskie’s provided a number of seafood specials along with the common menu. In truth, every day has completely different specials and distinctive dishes, all of that are up to date on their Facebook web page. You can plan your go to round Taco Tuesday, Italian Night or no matter seasonal dishes are being provided.

With the standard of the meals at Muskie’s, it’s a pleasing shock that it has saved their costs so low. Lunch for the three of us and a few drinks every, with tax and a 20% tip, got here to $90. Since we ordered an additional entree, we had loads to take house as effectively.

If you’re simply seeking to eat, you may simply get out and in for about $15 per particular person. They additionally supply a money low cost of 4%.

All in all, in the event you’re in search of a brand new spot that’s budget-friendly and has spectacular bar meals, add Muskie’s to your checklist of locations to go to.
