Surprised by Garbage Wings ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This place was AWESOME! 2 adults and 2 hungry 12 year old baseball players!! Ordered the garbage can wings because yelpers said we had to! And they were not wrong! Best wings ever! I don't like wings and usually don't order them and these were AWESOME!! Everyone liked their meal. Service was spot on. Don't miss this place if you get the chance - and by all means - get the garbage can wings!!

A lucky find - A must if you are in Oneonta ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I was in town for a wedding and had time to spare. I researched the net and found The Depot. It is off the beat and path but well worth a visit. First off, the staff were the friendliest staff I have had in years. They genuinely seem happy and want to make your experience worth it. I asked my waitress for a recommendation if you had the chance to only eat one thing what would it be. The Garbage Wings, rated # 2 in New York, behind The Anchor Bar, Buffalo. Wings, were to die for. It was hard to place the flavor. Sweet, spicy, mild, fruity, you name it. They are different than the Anchor wings ... smaller but cooked much better. They were nice and crispy yet not dry. I also ordered a side of onion wings, beer battered. Both served with homemade sauces. The owner came over to ask what I thought...told her the above. She was so nice she gave me a bottle of the Garbage Sauce. I can't wait to try it. P.S. Every food item that came out looked fantastic

Decades long customer --One of Oneonta's Best ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Been eating here since l985 always fine food, service, and beverages. Recently had the eggplant which was right at the top of the charts. Eggplant is notoriously difficult to prepare properly as it takes time and counterspace but the Depot does it right. Pleasant wait staff and upbeat diners. Rear deck (enclosed and heated for winter) is away from the noise of the bar for family and intimate dining. You might even see a passing train while you dine. A real historic depot from a railway long gone.
