This joint is over 60 years old (and I first went there forty-some years ago.) Wicked good hot dogs & hamburgs. You can get the elusive Rochester white hots there too. I can't stop by Rochester without a stop at Schallers. Soooooo much better than...More

Stopped here for lunch today and it was fair. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich and it was paper thin chicken and extremely dry. I asked for lettuce and tomatoes and they told me they don't have them. My friend got a hot dog and...More

Been around for a long time and is totally a Rochester tradition! It is as you would expect - fast food burgers! A bit greasy but that is to be expected. Like to splurge once a year when in town.

Schallers is awesome. My only warning would be that it's not for everyone, not healthy as it serves chicken, greesy burgers and hot dogs. Pretty sure they don't have vegan or that kind of stuff. Very old school but very cool and comfortable vibe there....More

The place is a dive. For fast food, I found it to be expensive and truly not worth the expense. Other fast food joints offer same stuff and cheaper. Plus the place is filthy. Not a huge fan at all.
