Very good BBQ! Brisket was very good, tender and tasty with good smokiness! Pulled pork was good. German potato salad and baked beans were amazing though, definitely get them. Better than the Cole slaw and Mac n cheese. Almond croissant was ok. Roasted beets look good, next time. We took our food down the road and ate it at the cidery with a good view and tables.
Don’t be turned away by the small look from outside. It is a clean professional bakery/smokehouse. Everything is made on premises. I had the bacon and egg biscuit. The biscuit was perfect. Great taste and texture. All the pastries have a special touch. Prices reflect hand made creative food. We will be back for sure.
Great breakfast spot off the beaten path! The sandwiches and pastries are incredible and worth checking out when in the Finger Lakes! The online ordering system was easy to use, and everything was prepared quickly.
Holy smokes! I’m super particular about my BBQ and since moving to NY over a year ago (from the south) I have yet to find anywhere with decent Q, until now. My wife and I stopped in to get some road snacks before hitting the Cayuga lake wine trail and we are so glad that we did. We got a pound of brisket to take with us on the road to snack on between wineries. The brisket is the 2nd best I’ve ever had, Aaron Franklin’s is still 1st but not by much. The good news is that State Bakery + BBQ is a lot closer to Saratoga Springs than Texas. I’ll be back for more brisket every chance I get. The pastries were also fantastic.
Oh my goodness, this place is great! A bit of a drive for us, but well worth it! Look carefully for this wonderful little place or you might miss it when you drive by! Not a ton of parking, as the business seems to be on residential property (I could be wrong), but have seen people carefully park along the road. It's run by a local couple, and they do it all! Amazing artisan pastries and some of the best BBQ you'll find in the north! Brisket that practically melts in your mouth and awesome mac and cheese, amongst other BBQ meats and sides. There are a few plastic patio chairs outside. We ate in our vehicle. I'm sure there may be some nice, scenic nearby places to possibly park and eat. They serve until they run out!! 🐷
