Today's ride on the Capital Region Foodie-Go-Round
DQ Grill & Chill restaurant is scheduled to open at 10 a.m. this Thursday. It is located at 1652 Central Avenue in Colonie, formerly the longtime site of Lake Electronics.
Unlike the original Dairy Queen ice cream stand concept, the broader footprint of the chain's new style includes a drive-through window and a menu of traditional fast food fare in addition to its well known ice cream items. The new venue seats 72 and will seat 12 outdoors in season.
Hours: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Closed Tuesdays. Phone: 952-6676.
Hours: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Phone: 346-7447.
• Looking for restaurant jobs to get started in the industry, or to rack up enough experience to help with admission to a college-level program, or because you're already in the biz but don't like your current role? There are quite a few openings at various levels at both independent and chain restaurants in the greater Capital Region (Lake George to Hudson) currently listed on Craigslist. Just in time to earn a few bucks for Christmas shopping.
Habitually, most of the independents don't put their names on their ads, but among chain spots not afraid to ID themselves are 99 Restaurant, Panera Bread, Cheesecake Factory, Ruby Tuesday, Olive Garden, and Red Robin.
