Schaller’s Brighton Review

Schaller’s Brighton; we’ve all seen the sign. The creepy chef throwing up gang signs on W. Henrietta Rd. I hadn’t been here before. I’d somehow overlooked this place for the last ~10 years. That all ends today. The “Schaller’s Plate” will cost you $9.61, which […]

Dogtown Review

I decided to start my quest at what is considered by many to be the greatest plate in Rochester. I will admit, it’s my go-to when I’m in the mood to celebrate. At Dogtown I order the split plate with home fries, mac salad, meat […]

Does The World Need Another Food Blog?

I submit the answer is no. But here we are. So let me welcome you to a project that I will likely give up on in a few months. My decade-long quest to find the “best” garbage plate has led me to this point. So […]
