Good eats around the Syracuse area??

Planning a little shopping trip to Syracuse in a few weeks. As usual, I am more interested in eating than anything else. Does anybody have any suggestions for restaurants, take outs, diners, etc? I shy away from franchises, but am open to all suggestions. Looking for that little gem, with good food, ethnic, local, as long as it is original and decent value...

Syracuse is a good size city. Contact their Chamber of Commerce. They will gladly send you a list of fine eating. Call them. Let them think you are a tourist.

The Dinosaur is a good choice.

A few drinks in the Armory Square area and many great food choices in all price ranges. They also have a couple of hotels in the area now so no need to drink and drive just walk and wobble. The most fun restaurant, to me, in the Armory District is Kitty Hoynes.

Here are a few more, where the locals grab a bite! If you let me know where you are staying I can probably find some close to your hotel. None of these are far from Destiny USA, I assume that is your destination.

It's a great place to eat, I was just kidding, most out of towners pass it by because it is old and sort of shabby!
