Crossgates may have lost Lucky Strike, but it is gaining a brand new eatery. This one that has seen a lot of hype over the previous months.

It was announced nearly a year ago that Maggie McFly's would be coming on into the Capital Region mall. Finally, it is about to be a reality. I'm going to be honest, I've completely bought into the hype on this one. I know I had a conversation about this place with a boss and we just spoke about how many kick-ass places Crossgates has now.

The Guilderland location will be the small chains eighth and first in New York State. It has a menu with plenty of depth and strives to source its ingredients locally says Times Union.

It has quite the extensive beer list too which is an added bonus. Good luck Maggie McFly's!

More from Times Union is here on the grand opening happening this Wednesday.
