Excellent food and service just as it has been since I started coming here in 1956. Cheeseburgers and onion rings are the best in Rochester.

This place is a DESTINATION when in Rochester!! Great food and the servers are friendly. The sauce for their "Ground Round" is what makes their burger stand out above others in the area.

Schaller's is a local institution, a throw back to Happy Days of the 1950's when a drive in burger joint was the rage. The food is average, but the history and vintage ambiance is exceptional. Want onions on your burger--they were fresh chopped earlier in the day, just as they were 60 years ago. Locals debate "hots"--that is chargrilled hot... More

How do those kids remember the order! It amazes me how the servers do not write down your order...no matter how large or customized! I've been going here for over 40 years. The flavor never changes or disappoints! Awesome meat sauce! Great fresh ingredients! Fun people watching! We love sitting outside at the picnic tables and watching all different types... More

Great food, friendly service and beautiful area for a visit. Found this place on Trip Advisor and very glad I stopped. Ground Round Sandwich is their specialty. Large parking area and seating.

Growing up in Rochester, Schallers was the place my grandparents and I had lunch every Sunday after church. They had make their burgers, onion rings and pickles...YUMMY. I have ALWAYS enjoyed the bacon and cheese ground round with ketchup and mustard. The best part of the burger is the hard roll! Enjoy your ground round the way you like it... More

Came to visit a friend and asked where to go for a quick lunch. He recommended Schaller's, and am I ever glad he did. Probable one of my top 5 favourite burgers. Wish there was one in Canada! This is the prefect example of a classic drive-in!
