Winslow's, a quaint restaurant nestled on route 9 between Saratoga and Queensbury, is well known in the area for their take on the American turkey dinner. Knowing this, of course I made a point to get out there and give it a go.
First I chose to try the famous turkey and rice soup. The soup was actually really good, not too robust in flavor but just enough to make the soup flavorful and enjoyable. I did find myself adding more salt to the soup, so maybe it could have used a little more sodium to kick it up a notch.
My mom and I decided to
share Winslow's most known-for dish, the turkey dinner. After looking around and watching diners struggle to
finish their portions, sharing was definitely the right choice. The meal
came along with stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce.
The main focus being the turkey, it was pretty darn good. I know how often the anticipation is on Thanksgiving to taste moist and juicy turkey but often it gets dry or bland. Well I must say, Winslow's does not have this problem. The turkey was cooked to perfection and it was made very clear why they are already getting booked up for Thanksgiving 2012.
My suggestion to Winslow's would be to keep doing what they're doing, because it's obviously working for them. If you're ever in the mood for a traditional, stick to your bones meal like a Thanksgiving dinner, I would absolutely suggest going to Winslow's. You'll come out 5 pounds heavier and satisfied for sure.
