“This place rocks!!!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

I am visiting my daughter and her family, who live in the Rochester, NY area. We were up in the Webster area and came across Hank's and decided to give it a try. Being from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and having lived in many areas of the country, we have eaten at some great burger places. However, this is easily among the best we have experienced. While this establishment clearly has it all together, and is exceptionally good at what they do, it still has that local, mom & pop type vibe that makes it a pure joy to visit. The owner is right there on site cooking up great and you could not ask for a more cordial or enthusiastic individual. Clearly he loves what he does. They serve a whole host of menu items from burgers, and hot dogs, to chicken, fries, and awesome ice cream treats. They even have some locally bottled soft drinks. I didn't get to try one, but they looked so inviting. And they have birch beer, something I hIKaven't seen in decades. I had a cheeseburger on wheat bun, my duaghter had a roast beef sandwich, and my wife had the same thing. Thier impression: "Amazing". We were all raving about the food by the time we left. And, again, the atmosphere was wonderful. You can tell this place has a very loyal clientelle. They are not opened on Sunday to honor family and faith. You can tell that this is a family that appreciates each other and thier clientele. I so apprecdiate a place like this. You can get chain food anytime, anywhere, but you will have a hard time topping this place, anywhere. I can't wait to go back.

“Nice burger and ice cream joint!”
Reviewed March 9, 2012

Hank's is a great place to grab a burger. Nothing fancy - kind of a local McDonald's, but so much better than a McDonald's! Be sure to try a roast beef on a kümmel wick roll. Scrumptious! And for dessert, try an ice cream cookie. You'll go back again and again!
