Tired of chain restaurants, we gave this a try. Surprised, and pleased with the car hop service :) Michigans were delicious and service was quick.

This place has been here since the 50's. The building is sinking into the ground. Yet drive by, and you will see that the parking lot is packed. Mainly car hop service. One if the best michigans in town.

My family and I have been enjoying Clare and Carl's Texas red hots for over 50 years. They are an icon and you have to visit if you are in Plattsburgh. They have shrimp in a basket, burgers, etc, but are best known for the Texas Red Hots(hotdogs in a bun with a spicy meatsauce). There onion rings are great... More

enjoy the food and service at Clare & Carls--they are priced right and Michigans are good. The place has been in business for a very long time--don't let outside appearance steer you away

Been visiting this place since I was a kid. Even with all the new places trying to compete I still rate Clare and Carls the best.

I think this place has some historical value for the area. The building itself is Run down and sinking into the ground! ....BUT, excellent Michigans!
