I love going to Schallers. Servers don't write your orders, they call it to the cooks and get it right every time. This is my Spring Fever happy place. The promise of summer and cookouts appeals to me every time. This last trip I had Cheeseburger with everything on a hard roll, it was cooked perfectly. I would love for... More

Hard to believe but actually a good option for fish fry or fish sandwich during lent! Way better than Bill grays in my opinion and fries and rings pretty good too. Not cheap but not outrageous either. Love it!

Some people might swear that Schaller's is one of the best burger joints in the area, but it's not. The burgers, tho good in size, lack flavor and are overprized. I had a double-cheeseburger, which was $7,50. And it didn't really taste like anything. The meatsauce just tastes like cinnamon. The fries and onion rings are good, but that's about... More

Excellent food and service just as it has been since I started coming here in 1956. Cheeseburgers and onion rings are the best in Rochester.

This place is a DESTINATION when in Rochester!! Great food and the servers are friendly. The sauce for their "Ground Round" is what makes their burger stand out above others in the area.

Schaller's is a local institution, a throw back to Happy Days of the 1950's when a drive in burger joint was the rage. The food is average, but the history and vintage ambiance is exceptional. Want onions on your burger--they were fresh chopped earlier in the day, just as they were 60 years ago. Locals debate "hots"--that is chargrilled hot... More

How do those kids remember the order! It amazes me how the servers do not write down your order...no matter how large or customized! I've been going here for over 40 years. The flavor never changes or disappoints! Awesome meat sauce! Great fresh ingredients! Fun people watching! We love sitting outside at the picnic tables and watching all different types... More

Great food, friendly service and beautiful area for a visit. Found this place on Trip Advisor and very glad I stopped. Ground Round Sandwich is their specialty. Large parking area and seating.
