Love the hot dogs! I also love the Garbage Plate! The cook knows exactly how to prepare my food without having to ask.

A fun and friendly place to eat! I've been told the home of the Garbage plate. Call it what you want but it's great! They use my favorite Zweigels Hot dogs. The beef fresh and cooked thoroughly. I can't wait to return!

To most Rochestarians, this is the place for the classic plate. If you dont feel like driving downtown for the first place a garbage plate was served, go here. It's the exact same product, started by the same family.

Stopped in for a quick bite and grabbed a hamburger with a side of onion rings. Enjoyed the hamburger with the Steve T hot sauce which which had a nice taste but thought the onion rings were just average. Still, the place is a good...More
