Restaurant details
Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

Clare and Carl's is not only a Plattsburgh "must try" Resturant, it's a summer "must have". Their michigan's are the staple item that everyone loves but their burgers are something that's like none other in the 'Burgh. Fresh beef and cooked to order just fabulous. Make sure you get it "smothered".

Love this place. it is a little drive up on the side of the road, they still come and serve you in your car or you can sit outside. They make a special "chili" dog called a Michigan. Loved it! It has been there for 50 years (according to the waitress) so they are doing somethign right.

I've had Michigans at all the north country eateries, and Clare & Carl's is the absolute best. Just enough tang, just a little heat, some secret and undefinable spices and herbs, some diced onions (buried, of course) and you've got a subtly flavored hot dog. If you want to talk atmosphere, the place is slowly sinking into the ground, you can eat in your car or the picnic tables, the carhops race around like sprinters, and the small counter area is straight from the 50's. In the small restaurant, mom and pop diner category Clare & Carl's is absolutely 5 star!

Return to the beautiful Adirondacks for our yearly visit in September and Clare and Carl's is a must-stop! Grew up on them so I guess some things never change! They are the best!
