The Capital Region is getting a bunch of new restaurants in early 2017!

From new burger and fast casual restaurants to a third location of the area's favorite brewing company, Capital Region foodies should get excited for this spring and summer. 


Troy-based burger joint Slidin' Dirty broke ground in early January on a new Schenectady location on State Street.

Slidin' Dirty began as a food truck and catering service in 2012. Their innovative menu, which includes ingenious takes on street food like burgers and tacos in addition to everyone's favorite gourmet mac & cheese, quickly earned them fans and followers in the Capital Region. Owners Tim and Brooke Taney opened their first restaurant location in Downtown Troy in 2014 and are looking forward to expanding in Schenectady's walkable downtown area.

Chicagoans layer their all-beef dogs with a variety of ingredients: mustard, relish, onion, pickle spear, sport peppers, tomato slices, and celery salt.

Hot dog enthusiasts in Seattle really broaden their horizons with cream cheese and sweet onions on their split-in-half dogs.

Every area has its own trademark hot dog, and the Capital Region is no different - we have our own signature dog, and it packs a lot of flavor in a small punch.
