Turning Stone Casino/Emerald Restaurant
5218 Patrick Road, Verona , NY
(blog of our visit)
Burger Joint / Basic
Black Jack Burger
The burger is grilled with blackened seasoning & topped with melted pepper jack cheese, sour cream and salsa and includes fries.
There are 2 types of food at casinos… the good and the cheap. Winning a nomination for the best burger in NY, we hoped that Emerald would be one of the nicer places. In the end, it was the later. Nominations were based on votes and they definitely have the foot traffic to get the votes. If you’re there and need a bite, then it’s a cheap place to go without leaving the tables to cool, but, if your there for the burger, you might want to drive a bit further. Although it will beat a fast food joint, it still had a ‘food factory’ feel.
Unfortunately, it failed to reach the minimum 25 on our rating scale so we will not be giving it a full review. If you’re curious about our experience there, please read the blog.
