My friends and I were on a pilgrimage trip to Penfield in June. It's a very beautiful place. We discovered Penfield Hots at the side of Pete Duel's (Alias Smith And Jones) childhood home. Apparently it was the Deuels' garage back in the day. The guy serving was very friendly and we had a good chat and laugh with him.... More

Everytime I come home to visit family I go to P-Hots. So many memories there with my high school basketball team and 2am P-Hot runs.

Great garbage plates, only use Zwiegles. Fish frays are also good. The prices are also very good. Call early on Fridays during Lent!

Wicked food in the tradition of a "Hots" establishment. Kids start going in high school and never stop until their doctors make them! Of course their parents use the kids as an excuse to stop in also. Some older citizens have to sneak down for a "Plate" when their wives are not looking. All out of state relatives have to... More

Favorite garbage plate spot on the East Side! Being able to call and order my plate and just stop in pick it up and go is a added bonus.

My boys have been eating Penfield hots for years. When they're home from school they stop in for a garbage plate. As a matter of fact, our whole family enjoys the occasional garbage plate from P-hots. For anyone expecting fine dining or catered to service you shouldn't go to P-hots. The rest of us know it's counter service at it's... More

This was a truly bizarre visit to this local Penfield restaurant that turned out to be a bit scary. The person working the grill when I walked in was preparing the lunch order for a group of three people, who seated around another table. I stood at the counter for a good five minutes just waiting for the employee to... More

A Red Hot with hot sauce, mac salad ... nothing is more quintessentially Rochester! Excellent food, large portions. Looks like it's in an old house. Could probably use a good cleaning and paint job. But still -- great food!

For anyone who hasn't eaten at one of these places, please bear with me. No, the food isn't gourmet. Neither is it healthy, attractive, or particularly nutritious. But it is Rochester garbage plates at their finest; good "grunge" food at its finest, and it sure tastes good! My dinner tonight consisted of two "white hot" hot dogs, split in half... More
