    Great for meat lovers & veg*ns alike! Veggie dogs can be subbed for any dog & vegetarian toppings are marked on menu. Special vegan burger served every Thursday. ONLY legit vegan "plate" in the Roc!

    Unusual fun place with regular, beef and veggie hot dogs with more fixings than you can imagine. PALEO option of 2 dogs on coleslaw and sweet potato fries was delicious!

    Best hot dog/burger/garbage plate place in Rochester, if not the world. Cool, eclectic place with a zillion hot dog choices. Great tunes and funky decor. Support your local businesses!

    It's a little pricy for a hole-in-the-wall and the drunken 20-somethings and affected hipster's can wear on your nerves in such TIGHT QUARTERS if you're in the wrong mindset. But, it's good 😛!

    Vegan special every Thursday. This is perhaps the only place in Rochester that has a legitimate vegan "plate." Many options here. Just ask. They know vegan.

    Ezekial D's post about veggie items is blatantly false. We use separate sections of the grill for meat items. Vegetarians and vegans are an important part of our business.

    So many great selections for food. While hot dogs are the main attraction (Pitbull is my fave) their plates are great as well.

    I ate myself into a coma. While I was there, an angel touched my face. I had some sauce on my cheek, he said to me. I woke up and ordered seconds.

    If you're in the mood for a plate, but not a whole plate. Get the halfie! Best buns in town from petrillos!

    They make a great garbage plate; order the split garbage plate to get the best of both worlds.

    Friendly staff, best footlong hotdogs in town, cheap, and quick service. Golden retriever and garbage plates are best with their crispy seasoned home fries.

    Can never go wrong with a good ole Boston Terrier. Bacon, baked beans, and meat sauce is a mean combo.
