A friend recommended this place to try a Buried Michigan. No idea what it might be but it is a local dish and we are all into trying local dishes. It is a little like a Texas Hot. But the sauce has a kick to it and the roll is a Texas style one. The home made fries are crispy... More

One of my favorites stops in Plattsburgh. Michigans are a local tradition and you need to try one if have never had one.

This was my 7 or 8 th trip in the past couple of months. Usually service is fast and red hots great. This time, my wife and I waited for our order for over 50 minutes. I asked 3 times how long it would be and kept getting the same answer. I had time to drink my medium rootbeer and... More

Standard fare with Michigans. Not as good as Clare and Carl's, but more prevalent in the area. If you are doing a tour of Michigans, you can start here and work your way up.

Very good, albeit a tad spicy, michigan hot dogs with steamed rolls. The French fries are good as are their hamburgers. Very casual family dining. Fairly good selection of typical American food. Each order is fresh cooked.

Great food in a north country atmosphere. Wonderful Michigans in an unhurried setting. Proudly owned by a proud, outspoken American! I am proud to support this restaurant and owner.

Love McSweeney's. Their red HOTS are excellent, good tasting and done well. I personally also love those crinkle fries, something about the way they are done makes them delicious. They have a good selection of menu items to choose from and I've never had anything I didn't like. Good tasty food for a fair price. Desserts are yummy also. They... More

Their michigans are spicy but very good. You can choose regular fries or hand cut fries, among many other selections.

We stopped in to grab some lunch. The staff was very nice. Hot dog was good. Not as good as Gus'. Burger was ok. Homemade fries are just ok. I ordered a side salad that was 5 dollars! It had iceberg lettuce and radishes, yuck. Overall we thought our food was just ok.
