WNYTBDGPS pre-home opener Luncheon

Recommended Posts

Every weekend growing up ~3 AM. 3 deep all around the counter trying to order. What a sh*t show that was.

Once saw a dude eat 4 plates after we all chipped in for $100. He did it.

I am basking in the epicurean glow of my cheeseburger/white hot Garbage Plate, with everything and extra meat sauce.

 

Most restaurants are now serving plates but NONE compare to the original at Nick Tahou..

 

Good seeing Rich, Jack, Jay and Diane! 

 

See you Sunday around sunrise!

I'm all for tradition, but there's zero chance that Nicks is in the top 10 of Rochester plates.

@Taro T are you in?

 

Sadly no.  Had a work meeting that conflicted.  Will be there next year.

I missed this, but can anyone recommend a good place for a garbage plate near the Niagara Falls border or Lewiston?  Never had one before.

About 60 miles east.  I always thought the garbage plates were a Rochester specialty.  WNY was known for Texas Hots (scum dogs).

After some research it seems the closest place to me that serves something close enough to a "true" garbage plate is Greek To Me, about 55 minutes from me and the opposite direction of where I'm headed.  Found an article about Buffalo's options and most of them were basically bastardized poutines. 

 

Guess I'll have to make the trip to Rochester some day.  I'm interested though to hear more about this supposed controversy of Nick's being the "original" but not one of the best.  Like Duffs I guess?

Head towards Rochester and look for a Bill Gray's or Tom Wahl's. Both have many locations with versions of the plate. But you should try Nick Tauhou's someday to make your own comparison.

I looked up Bill Grays earlier in Google Maps, and there were two closer to me!  Just..."permanently closed".  Uhhh sure thanks Google, so helpful.

Bay Hots used to have the best plates in Rochester, IMO.   I think they’ve closed.   Marks on Monroe is a close second place for me.   Never had a good plate at Tahou’s.   Decent but not great.

Schaller’s makes my favorite plate. 

 

Spencerport Hots is damn good too.

If any of you are still in the Rochester area and are looking for a another culinary mountaintop to climb for today, might I suggest the curly bomber at Schmegs diner on Buffalo Road. You won't be disappointed. Great breakfast sandwiches too.

 

 Note: this isn't me in the picture. It is a random google image of the bomber.
