So I just found out there is some crap hole in the wall diner in Kenosha, WI that is using the name "garbage plate" to describe their literal (does not sound or look appetizing in the least bit) garbage plate of eggs, hash browns, peppers and meat. WTF?!?!?

Someone PLEASE let Alex Tahou know what the fk is going on over in Wisconsin. They are STEALING the Tahou family's intellectual property!! No one, and I mean NOBODY can use the name "garbage plate" in the United States. It is trademarked. They think that just because they're in some no name small city in the midwest somewhere where that big nosed old man Al Molinaro (all due respect) is from, that they can STEAL the name "garbage plate?" You've got to be kidding me!!!

These people are ROBBING the Tahou family. They are sticking them up without a gun! This is ridiculous. Hasn't anyone discovered that they were doing this yet? I mean I wouldn't expect Alex to be very up to date on technology so he probably hasn't found them online, but they've been featured on the show "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" where they once again flaunt the name "garbage plate" to describe their disgrace of a meal.

I want to see Frank's Diner in Kenosha, WI sued for every penny they're worth. On their website they even insult us by saying "Don't confuse Frank's garbage plate with that garbage in New York."

FUnK FRANKS DINER!!! YOU DO NOT HAVE A GARBAGE PLATE!!!! YOU MAY NOT USE THE TAHOU FAMILY'S NAME AND I WILL SEE TO IT THAT YOU NEVER USE IT AGAIN!!!!

You're an idiot. I'm letting ROCHESTER know that someone is STEALING our city's specialty food.

I'm posting here in the hopes that someone who knows Alex Tahou will see this and let him know so a lawsuit can be filed against Frank's Diner.

Good idea though, I'll copy and paste this to the Kenosha forum so they are prepared when their asses get sued for 6 figures.

Rochester, specifically Nick Tahou's, is the home of the garbage plate. I've seen similar products all over, usually WNY, but never with the name garbage plate (always a trash plate,[insert restaurant name here] plate, etc).
I doubt it'll turn into a big ordeal, but Rochester and Tahou's deserves the credit

Morons on this thread will never understand that Nick owns the name - for use nationally. They could license it from Tahoe, but they can't use it arbitrarily for free.

And they make reference to Rochester, so it being used with full knowledge that they are in violation (stealing it). Hope they get sued. They deserve it.

I don't think anyone should be sued over the garbage plate or anything? It would be like McDonalds suing Burger King and Wendy's for having similar products that they already have ownership of.

If Disney didn't give permission for their to be a mickey tatoo then yes they can sue because you called it Mickey and they did not release those rights. If it was a character that looks like Mickey, but was something different they couldn't sue.

Apparently Ha Ha and Steelers Rock are not from New York, seriously come here and then you'll know what kind of coverage on TV and Newspapers there is. Also, the point of Topix is to share and ask information. I don't think I'm doing anything wrong by seeking information and sharing what I know with others.

Listen, you little nut job, I am certainly from New York. What piece of information have you shared in your 14,500 posts over the past 5 days? From what I have been catching up on...NOTHING.
I have not posted 14,500 things certainly not that I just starting coming on here this month. You and that HA HA guy surely fooled me if you guys really are from NY. But I don't consider 6:46 night time I think nighttime isn't til 8.

That has nothing to do with the Garbage plate does it?
I agree that the garbage plate shouldn't be something to be sued over.

Oh dear. Where to begin? First off, "My Dad Loves My Mom" is certainly not the sharpest knife in the drawer. I am rolling my eyes so much that I can barely see what I am typing.
I'm starting to see some similarities between a certain Dewey/Stone resident and this character from Newark.
