For many, the warmer weather of spring and summer brings thoughts of cookouts and visiting one of the region’s popular burger stands.

Recently, staff photographer James Neiss hit the road to visit several burger spots in Niagara County. Some, like Reids and WideWaters Drive-In, harken back to simpler times and offer good food in a nice, outdoor location. Others, like Rock Burger in the Falls, offer diners something new and exciting in a bit more urban setting.

There’s always, of course, the culinary tastes and scenic views from Lewiston where popular spots like The Silo draw many, many customers over the summer months. Among the culinary delights on Center Street you’ll find the Cask+Cow and its popular offerings.

Enjoy the sights of summer feasts to come.
