I've been coming to John Hardy's for about 15 years, ever since I dated a guy that worked in Rochester. The guy is long gone, and I live over an hour from Rochester,but that doesn't stop me from enjoying some John Hardy's a couple times a year. Luckily my job brings me to the area...(OK I admit it, I volunteer to handle the Rochester area in order to have an excuse to go to John Hardy's). I always order the exact same thing... Beef platter, with macaroni salad and jojo potatoes. My mouth is watering just thinking of it. I used to make my boyfriend bring me takeout each time he came to visit...now whenever someone tells me they're passing through Rochester, I beg them to grab some BBQ for me. I've been known to drive over 60 miles just for dinner at John Hardy's. The place is kind of a dive and the service isn't fantastic, but the food is oh so delicious!!!!
