Charlie Riedel’s – Webster

Charlie Riedel’s – Webster

On Instagram, I asked my followers to recommend plate places; and boy did they deliver. Charlie Riedel’s aka Charlie’s Restaurant, is the best basic plate I’ve ever had; bar none. It’s better than a lot of the “deluxe” plates I’ve had. There isn’t any one […]

Sal’s Birdland – Irondequoit Review

Sal’s Birdland – Irondequoit Review

I had a chance to check out Sal’s Birdland in Irondequoit earlier this month. It was a welcome change from the disaster that was last month’s no sauce plate. For 10.79 you can get the “Sal’s Plate” which comes with wedges instead of fries. This […]

585 Rockin’ Burger Bar – Review

585 Rockin’ Burger Bar – Review

I recently had the misfortune of trying the worst plate I’ve had to date; and I’m not being hyperbolic. With the amount of garbage plates that I’ve eaten, I’d thought that nothing would be worse than Henrietta Hots. I was wrong. I would now like […]

Bill Gray’s – Henrietta – Review

Bill Gray’s – Henrietta – Review

I had the chance to try the Bill Gray’s plate offering this past weekend. Like my experience at Tom Wahl’s,  I hadn’t ever eaten at Bill Gray’s. Bill Gray’s is a Rochester institution with many locations in the area. They have a large sign out […]

Ken’s Pizza Corner – Brighton – Review

Ken’s Pizza Corner – Brighton – Review

Ken’s Pizza Corner is a tiny little place that you could overlook if you didn’t know it was there. I had a chance to check out a plate from them a few weeks ago and I was not disappointed. For 12.96 you can get their […]

Atlas Kitchen & Lounge – Review

Atlas Kitchen & Lounge – Review

Once again, I was on the road to sample plates from around the country. This time I was in Seattle, where had the chance to check out Atlas Kitchen & Lounge. The prospect of trying a plate on the other side of the country is […]

Buffalo’s Famous – Review

Buffalo’s Famous – Review

For the next two weeks I’m going to be taking my review game on the road. If you’re craving a plate or other culinary staples of Western New York, then there’s a home for you in Brooklyn. Buffalo’s Famous serves up an array of WNY […]

Highland Park Diner – Review

Highland Park Diner – Review

Wrong. Whoever made that Folgers commercial never had the joy of the Highland Park “Diner plate Benedict”. For $11.27 you too can get a “Diner plate Benedict”. Imagine if you will, a garbage plate, complete with eggs, AND home fries. You know what else has […]

Blu Wolf Bistro – Review

Blu Wolf Bistro – Review

I had the chance to check out Blu Wolf Bistro last weekend. A friend mentioned that they had an offering that I should try. When I arrived the place was bustling with activity; which is always a good sign. For a whopping 16.20$ you can […]
