I've been here a couple of times. Sort of a summer ritual. Went on Saturday for my traditional Cheeseburger with onions, fried clams, fries and a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon. Pretty good. Good amount of food for the money. Cash only. Good enough to go back next year. Table available right away. Service was quick and polite.

Leno's is known as Greasy Nick's by the locals. The grill probably hasn't been cleaned in years, which is why the Cheesburgers are so savory. They come with or without onions on a toasted kaiser roll, not a bun. To it's namesake signage there are also Clams available, plump freshly shucked Littlenecks and Cherrystones in various sizes on the half... More

We have been driving by here for over 35 years . We were heading out for a hike in Mount Kisco and finally decided to stop in and give it a try . People raved about fresh corn on the cob but a refer-truck delivered it frozen . Burgers are frozen and greasy as well . Had to keep the... More

I stopped here after work to grab a bite with my husband today. Walked in and sat at the counter...everyone behind the counter watched us and kept doing what they were doing....wiping the counter, making burgers, picking up orders and standing talking to the person making the burgers. NO ONE said i will be with you shortly or asked if... More

OK, it's fried and maybe it's not the healthiest way to eat. If you can live with that, the place is a classic - fried clams, fresh corn on the cob, hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, beer, paper plates and plastic glasses, and all on the street in the middle of no place in particular in New Rochelle. When the... More

If you can handle eating on a bench that has seen better days and needs a swab, food that is on plastic, etc., etc., this is for you. Very simple and basic and not at all cheap.

Leno's Clam Bar aka "Greasy Nick's" if your from the area is not the world's greatest food, but its not bad either. I mean it's more of summer time chill food, some wings, burgers and fries. It's only open during the spring and summer months. All out door seating and it's in a small area, attracts all types of people.... More

Been a big fan of Greasy Nicks for over 40 years. We went last week for burger and fries. The place was dirty, the food undercooked and expensive to boot. Until they change... This will be our last visit

Always get the cheeseburgers with onions. It never disappoints. It's kind of a dive type of place, not someplace you would want to eat at regularly. Nice for a quick, greasy american bite when the weather is nice.
