I use to come here often back in the early 1980's. Nothing has changed! I think they still have the same tables, chairs and fryers in the back. Clams were good not I love the cheese burger with grilled onions fries and a root beer. A good meal

I have been going to this New Rochelle classic since I was a child in the 1960's. Not fancy, you get good burgers, fries, corn and steamers. It's one of the last roadside eateries left in the region. It's a real throwback to the 1940's when it opened. Definitely a must see. PS Jay Leno worked there once upon a... More

This one eat out place is one of the drive ins or dives but with excellent food. The burgers are the best: grilled to perfection double or single cheeseburger with grilled onions and ketchup. Don't ask for lettuce and tomato $0.50 additional. They are original without it. Very good taste of the fish and chips as well. We were surprised... More

It's one of those places that you have to stop at during the summertime...although it's not a high-end restaurant and hence the nickname greasy Nick's....but the food here is enjoyable....it's me remind you of how the food court at the beach club but it doesn't mean you shouldn't eat here...it would be too hard to explain so I'll just say...

Living in Westchester, one misses having road-side, drive-ins and funky cheap eats. Leno's has sewed up this as its draw. The college kids who work there make you feel young again and the Harleys parked curbside make you feel hip. Go there...for the corn, the price, being outside, and for feeling like you are on a road trip, only without... More

Lenos is a tradition. The burgers are the best and the corn is great. Get it to go and enjoy it at home after a long week. Very good and great prices too

ok the owner has six kids...the prices got a little high.....just get a cheese burger or two with onions, fries, a beer or soda . You got sea air, a non- descriptive place, that reeks of non conformity to mass marketing. A through back, a hang out. Been going on and off for forty years. When I am back in... More

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
