New York City may garner much of the glory when it comes to the state's dining scene. After all, the metropolis is home to dozens of name-droppable restaurants and the most Michelin stars in the nation. But as we all know, every corner of the country has its own local dishes and traditions that can be just as delightful to track down as a coveted Manhattan reservation. From Buffalo to Binghamton, cities and towns a few hours northwest of the Big Apple have their own food cultures, and they're finally being connected with the official Upstate Eats Trail.

So what can one expect to eat along the way? You'll be stopping for the well-traveled Buffalo-style chicken wings at the famed Anchor Bar, Syracuse's salt potatoes at Bull & Bear Roadhouse, Binghamton's chicken spiedies (skewer-cooked meat sandwiches) at Lupo's S & S Char Pit, and Rochester's infamous garbage plate at Nick Tahou Hots, a whole mess of potatoes or fries, macaroni salad, hot dogs, hamburger patties, and condiments (that, as a former Central New York-area college student myself, I can confidently confirm epitomizes the term "drunk food").
