If you are expecting fine dining this is not the place to go. What this is is a burger joint that represents who Rochester is. It's a little dirty; a little rough around the edges; but it has CHARACTER! The Garbage Plate is who Rochester...More

Best experienced late at night, Steve T (Formerly a "Nick Tahou Hots" location) is a Rochester staple and serves one of the best plates out there. For the uninitiated, the standard plate is a layer of Home Fries and Macaroni salad, 2 cheeseburgers or Hot...More

To most Rochestarians, this is the place for the classic plate. If you dont feel like driving downtown for the first place a garbage plate was served, go here. It's the exact same product, started by the same family.

While in town you have to get a Garbage Plate and Steve Ts is one of the originals. It looks like a mess but it tastes delicious. Open 24 hours so a great place to come after a night of drinking.

Awesome Rochester style Red Hots. Dogs were smothered in mustard onion and an awesome chili sauce. Will be a stop for me anytime I am in the rochester area

You can't mess with an original... Or can you? I used to come here once or twice a week for years. The plates were the best and the staff knew how to deal with the rowdy bar crowd after 2am. Sometimes they even hired security...More
