Planning to visit the 12078 zip code of Gloversville, New York anytime soon? If so, please keep in mind a few of these excellent lounges and eateries. They are our top picks in the city, highly recommended!

>As we kick off this list we've got to note that there are a ton of pizzerias on the list. Gloversville is known for its great pizzerias, and House of Pizza is one of them! We love coming in for an amazing huge pizza pie, but they are also known for their pastas, including their delicious shrimp alfredo, and of course their steaks and salads are also noteworthy! We've been coming here for years, so you can take our word for it that their salads are as crisp as they come, and their steaks are perfectly cooked to order. It's also cool that this is a dine-in restaurant, but that they also have a drive-thru window for their customers' convenience. Always a great time here, and great service too.

Al's Pizza may not look like much, but they have some of the very best food around. We are absolutely hooked on their delicious subs, which have got to be the best in Gloversville. They've also got great pizza slices on the cheap, so when you're hungry and in a rush, you can just run in here and grab a quick slice. They've also got incredible bread that's baked fresh on the premises, and you will definitely want to get yourself some of that! Once you catch the scent of that delicious bread, you'll have no choice but to order some. The staff here is so friendly, you'll feel like you've stepped back in time. We can't say enough about the high quality of this cozy little pizzeria. Definitely one of the best.

The Rail Yard is a restaurant and bar that we just love to go to with our friends, family, or even with that special date. You can kick back with a couple of delicious beers on draft (try the Saranac Imperial IPA! Very highly recommended), and pair that with a couple of openfaced steak sandwiches... what more couuld you want? It's paradise on a plate, and in a glass. The clientele here can be all business at lunchtime and all families and friends at dinner time, but you'd be wise to call for reservations no matter what time you're coming in, because when they're packed, they're packed. Everybody just loves this place and it's hard to find a time when happy customers aren't filling the place. The Rail Yard gets our highest recommendation on this list!

Plaza's Italian Bistro is yet another pizzeria/Italian restaurant that we simply could not bear to leave off this list. The thing that comes to mind immediately when someone says Plaza's is that wonderful soup, salad, and bread bar. Yum yum yum... too good! They've got a kind of bread here that's stuffed to overflowing with ham and cheese, and we can never resist it. The pastas are probably the biggest star of the menu, and that's what our eyes are always drawn to first. Try the eggplant parmesan too, it's amazing! You'll come for the food and stay for the decor... we love gazing at that beautiful copper ceiling, for one thing! Very retro and cool.

Another pizza joint? Yep, but not just any pizza joint... THE Pizza Joint! That's the actual name of it. Everybody that we know raves about the pizza here, and no matter what you order, they always give you huge portions of it! The zeppolis are just fantastic, little pieces of fried dough with cinnamon and sugar sprinkled heavily on them... if you're expecting a tiny container of them, think again, they really give you a LOT. Enough to share! The staff here is so friendly to us every time we come in, and of course they've got delivery too so if you don't feel like leaving the house, you don't need to! Very fast delivery too. We're always shocked that they can get it here that fast. Very highly recommended.

Gloversville Palace Diner is a wonderful cozy spot that serves up huge portions at very affordable prices. Breakfast is a real joy here, with their hearty selections and friendly service. We love the french toast, and you can't go wrong with eggs, meat, and toast. They do it right. We've come in several times and have always been impressed by the clean surroundings, friendly staff, and of course those amazingly big portions! There's nothing better than coming in on a weekend morning for a hearty breakfast, and really filling up on all your favorites including eggs, meats, toast, waffles, french toast, hash browns... all those delicious things that make breakfasts worthwhile. Gloversville Place Diner is a real winner in our book.

New York Lunch is known for their hot dogs of course, and that's the very reason that we have come back time and time again. Of course the meatsauce is also one of their specialties, and when you have a hearty helping of that slathered all over your hot dog along with some saurkraut, spicy brown mustard, and delicious onion slices, you've got a real winner of a dog. Our friends always say that this place reminds them of the diner from Happy Days, and that's one of the reasons that they love going there so much. We love it too. Friendly service, old fashioned style, and hot dogs that you can never grow tired of... That's more than enough reasons for you to check this one out asap!

Choo Choo's Ice Cream is conveniently located right across from The Rail Yard, and it's the perfect place to go for dessert after you've had a hearty meal across the street. Of course, being an ice cream shoppe, it's open seasonally and it seems to be closed more than it's open, so you may want to call ahead and make sure they're open on the day that you're going! We love their ice cream and their blended treats, and of course that oh-so-charming train theme that all the generations of kids have loved so much. When you're craving something cool and refreshing on a hot summer day, Choo Choo's Ice Cream is the essential choice in Gloversville.

Travers Diner is our top favorite breakfast spot in Gloversville, no questions asked! They've got a wild variety of breakfast foods, much like the larger chain breakfast restaurants but with a more home style quality, with everything being homemade and totally fresh. We really love the pancakes and waffles here, and the eggs and meats are very good too. They've also got some Greek offerings on the menu, including delicious gyros and really tasty tzaziki sauce that sets them off just perfectly. The crowd here is mostly of the mature set, so it's a little quieter and more laid back than some of the other popular breakfast joints in the area, which we appreciate! Always a great start to the day here.

Jamie & Scott's Downtowner is one of our favorite restaurants in the area, really making a name for itself in record time. Their salads are probably our favorite thing here, especially the one with fresh greens, goat cheese, and balsamic vinaigrette. The flavors blend together so seamlessly and it's just the freshest thing you can imagine. They've got a really great selection of beers here too, so you can kick back during or after your meal and get a little buzz going. The affordable prices are also a boon for this restaurant, making it a nice choice for dates or gatherings where you're paying for a group of friends. Everything is very high quality here and the staff is so friendly too! Love it!
