So I love garbage plates and have been a fan of the original garbage plate BUT I'm a convert. Philly Mac's garbage plate is sooo good and I think their hot sauce is the best in the greater Rochester area. note:I do like everything kinda mushed together for the flavor.

I had a turkey rueben. The filling was ample and tasted good, but they definitely need to use a different kind of bread. It was very dry and tasteless. Perhaps if it had been buttered and grilled it would have made the difference.

This was our first time at this establishment. I had read about it on TripAdvisor, but also asked some locals about it at our lacrosse tournament. I was told it was a can't miss. The locals were right! The cheesesteaks were excellent, as was all the food. The two young ladies working the front counter and register were pleasant and... More

These authentic Philly Chees Steaks are awesome. The bread is shipped in from Philly to add to the real taste and textures.

I'm originally from Philadelphia and stopped here on my way home from a course at the NYWCC. OMG, I felt like I was HOME! These steaks took me right back to growing up in Philly and time spent at the South Jersey Shore (Wildwood, Ocean City, Cape May). The rolls are KEY--I could smell the fresh taste before I even...

5 out of 5 stars when it comes to cheesesteaks! I give this place 5 out of 5 stars for cheesesteaks because they are the best cheesesteaks you can find anywhere in the finger lakes, not because the restaurant is amazing.... go here for the cheesesteaks and that is it!

Stopped in for lunch. The Philly cheese steak sandwich was very good. The roll was awesome. I'm visiting from Ohio, but would definitely stop back again.

Nice atmosphere, nicely decorated, as most places put up cheesy pics and goofy nick-nacks.. As for the food the only reason they got 4 star and not 5 is because they forgot my husbands onions. Other than that food is great! Check it out! You won't regret it!
