Do you remember CHIPS on Arnold Ave and the old King Cole Ice Cream (uptown) and never forget the Uptown Grill (best fish fries)? Let's go further back...WYN-DOTS (sp ?) near commercial drive for great burgers and shakes, of course KEWPEES and your mention of White Tower makes me want their fries !!! Trios Pizza in NY Mills and Pasquales Pizza are my 1st stops everytime I visit Utica !!! Great memories - great food, Thanks Meghan !

There also used to be a lot of great bar and grills in East Utica and Cornhill that served very good lunches. They were all busy at lunchtime too untill all the jobs left. Now they are all gone.
