Sometimes, it’s the parents who get more excitement over the Billy Goat Tavern than the kids, and that’s because the Billy Goat Tavern became legendary when it was mocked in an early “Saturday Night Live” skit. This is where “cheezborger! cheezborger!” originated… and “No Coke. Pepsi!” The restaurant is a dive, and it’s located on a lower street level, under an overpass, but it’s filled with photos of the SNL cast and will get a laugh when you really are demanded to get cheese on your burger and offered no other option for soda but Pepsi. The kids won’t mind the burger and chips lunch stop.
