Saturday night races at the speedway are a practically a tradition when the weather is permitting. It's always packed! You can hear the roar of the stock cars whipping around the dirt track from miles away! Many great drivers have started and finished their racing careers at Fonda Speedway over the years. This isn't Nascar, but you can't get any closer to it anywhere else in the Mohawk Valley area. The stock car races on the dirt track are awesome. Grab some snacks from one of the snack bars, find a seat in the grandstand or bleachers, try your luck on the 50/50 raffles and enjoy the races! Admission prices have always been fair for the hours of entertainment provided. Remember to bring some ear plugs if you are sensitive to noise as it gets pretty loud.
I love Rice Garden for quick Chinese take-out. They serve up some really yummy dishes including bbq pork & chicken. I love their mushroom chicken because the veggies are so fresh & tasty in that dish. The selection is not huge, but everything I have tried there is really good so you won't be disappointed. Prices are very fair for the large portions you get. Staff are usually friendly and welcoming. I also like the fact that this is inside a Basha's store so I can pick up my groceries and get some hot, tasty Chinese take-out for supper on the way out the store.
I enjoyed a very good breakfast at Bitz-ee Mama's. The food was delicious. Nice, fluffy hot pancakes! Mmmmm! Service was pretty good and prices seemed fair to me. The restaurant has a small town, homey kind of feel to it. That made the whole experience even better. Stop by & check out Bitz-ee Mama's if you are in the area.
This is the best Trails store I've been into and that is totally because of the staff. They are always friendly & helpful & ready to flash you a smile or crack a joke. It makes the store a fun, welcoming place to enter. Trails sells all kinds of unique items, clothing, jewelry, incense & more. I think the prices are fair for what you get & when you add in the exceptional service it's totally worth it.
This is a small location, but a good one. You can get just about anything you need in the way of cigarettes, cigars, tobacco & lighters. Prices are very reasonable and service is always great. The guys that run the place are friendly and always chatty with the customers. You will pay more at the 7-11 on the corner so stop here first!
This is a great branch of National Bank of AZ. The tellers & other staff are always warmly welcoming & ready to assist you. They are great with answering questions & making your banking experience a good one. I am usually in & out very quickly. Occasionally it gets a little busy on Friday afternoons as that is a common payday for many folks, but the wait isn't too bad. We also use this bank for our accounts in my office and they do a fantastic job meeting our needs, answering our questions, etc. Overall this is simply a really good branch of this particular bank.
El Rancho offers the classic drive-in movei experience. Open during the summer months, they show plenty of new titles. It's so much cheaper than going to a regular theater for movies and you get a double feature every time! Great for families on a budget! There is a fairly large snack bar with lots of tasty treats to tempt you, too. Staff are always friendly. My only complaint is that the lines for the restrooms get really long during intermissions, but that is to be expected as everyone wants to take a break quickly and get back before the next movie starts. At least the facilities are clean once you get in there. Stop by & check out El Rancho to enjoy movies from the comfort of your own car. You won't be disappointed.
Western Jewelry & Loan is a fantastic pawn shop. They have all kinds of merchandise for great prices. Electronics, jewelry, firearms, art, musical instruments & more! You will pay more elsewhere so stop here first. The staff are always polite and professional and willing to discuss your options with you. You get great service. Plus they offer much higher prices than other area pawn shops if you are looking to get a loan for something or just sell it outright.
Vegas Pawn's website claims they offer friendly customer service & wholesale prices on what they sell so I suggested it and went with a friend when she wanted to sell a set of rings. Not only did we find prices on merchandise that were higher than other area pawn stores, we also encountered less than friendly service. In fact, the man behind the counter was just plain rude. We did not end up buying anything and my friend was able to sell her rings elsewhere for a much higher price. I wouldn't recommend you waste your time by visiting Vegas Pawn unless you want to pay more than you have to for something and be treated like garbage in the process.
Smokin' Lingerie offers a huge selection of lingerie as well as other adult items and video rental. If you are looking for a sultry costume for Halloween, they have many. Exotic dancers can find great deals on costumes (including shoes!) year round. They also do adult videos, toys & even smoking paraphenalia if that is your thing. Prices are usually a good deal and the staff are helpful and friendly.
