"At the end of day, we really feel like this competition wasn’t won in Syracuse. It was won here in the hearts of Port Jervis and the entire Hudson Valley," We know that no other restaurant in this competition had brought the enthusiasm and power in numbers that you all had continually brought by voting for us!!! It was absolutely overwhelming!!

The Benny Burger also received some high praise from one of the judges. Charlie Miller, a Syracuse-based food critic, asked Geraghty about his special Benny Sauce recipe.
