Asked for burger medium rare and make sure it's pink; came to me charcoal well done (gross). Macaroni salad tasted like it came out of the garbage. Fries were just there, nothing worth eating. Waitress gave us one straw & one set utensils yet there were three of us. Had to ask twice for extras. Thanks but no thanks, never... More

We were enroute to Quebec City and stopped for lunch. A unqiue place with a menu like a diner. Many, many choices. But we went with their red hots. We both got Michigans which are hot dogs with chili sauce. They were so good, we stopped again on our way back home.

Ok. I've had various style dogs all over the country and world for that matter. What am in missing with Red Hots? The dogs are neither red or hot. This is a clean diner with typical diner breakfast and lunch fair. The service was prompt and friendly. I ordered a red hot platter that came with two Michigans, fries and... More

Don't go. That's my best advice. We read other reviews and were hoping for a great experience. We seated ourselves at the server's request and she went over a few items that are frozen and not made fresh there -- basically every appetizer except the cheese sticks is bought premade. My husband ordered the roast beef plate with mashed potatoes... More

This became our go-to place to eat during a short visit to Plattsburgh. There is no wonder their "Michigans" (chile dogs) are among the winningest in nationwide contests. The service was excellent. It was a slow night for dinner, and we appreciated chatting with our waitress. If we're ever up there again, we will definitely stop in again!

This week ate here with two friends, I always order breakfast no matter what time of day I eat there, the corned beef hash/egg breakfast is delicious and served nice and hot. The toast could be toasted longer but it is good with the jam that is provided (not home made like some places in this area serve). The coffee... More

They serve the best fries and gravy in the area. Staff were so sweet and caring. You get plenty of food for the perfect price . Can't wait to go back again.
