My gf and I went to Greece Ridge today. She wanted to shop, I did not. The mall was freaking packed! Anyway, when it was time to eat, we setteled for Tom Wahl's because we had coupons. Haven't had TWs in a while, and forgot how great their burgers were. Awesome! This made up for a hectic shopping day. Bill Grays has nothing onthis place. I know they are the same company, but they are separate. I will be back soon.

Tom Wahls is definitely better than Bill Grays. I concur.

Tom Wahls burgers are bigger and tastier. Bill Grays are smaller and dryer. Not to mentioned overrated.

I think people go to Bill Grays because they constantly have those coupons. You don't even bother going without thos endless coupons or you feel like you're getting ripped off.

Bill Grays has more locations and more convienient. I see Tom Wahls as less is a lot more.

You have got to have one! I love hot meat sauce, so it's a no brainer for me. But the plate really depends on the quality of the mac salad. It could make it or break it. I had no idea that Tom Wahls and Bill Grays were one and the same. They don't seem to be.

Go to wikipedia, it will tell you. Bill Grays acquired TWs in 1986.
As far as the plates, BGs Garage plate didnt do it for me. No flavor. TWs junker plate is pretty good. Haven't had a nicks plate in years, last time i had one, it sucked.

Nick's has sucked since Nick died, all his help left to start their own Hot's stands and his Son and Daughter in law took over. For a while the Nick's in Gates(now Steve T's) was the best but, after Steve(Nick's nephew) died that went to crap to. I've tried every(almost) knock-off plate in ROC, nothing compares to the old time original garbage plate. About the closest I've found is Henrietta Hot's with Fairport Hot 's next runner-up.

Iescaped too bad you waited so long, you really missed out on something good. Wahl's and Gray's aren't even close to being in the same league as the original Nick's Plate.

Yup. And the hot meat sauce is crucial! Everyone has one...but some places put way too much cinnamon in it! You know what you have to try? A Garbage Sub at Rhino's Pizzeria. There is one on Humboldt and in Webster. It's a Garbage plate on a sub roll! Ingenious!

All that cinnamon just turns the meat sauce in to dog food. Almost forgot Bay Hot's was awesome to, closed a few years ago. It was run by the Greek guy that was behind the counter on Main St back in the day.
I'll give Rhino's a try, sounds delish.

Everyones on the garbage plate wagon locally. I was impressed with Tom Wahls plate. Sals Birdland plates are decent. I see Salvatores has a plate as well. I am afraid to try it.

I used to love LDR Charpit's meat sauce til the old man died. It's not nearly as good anymore. Yeah. Rhino's makes a mean sub! They have this antipasto one that rocks! All the subs are delicious. Cheap, too. Now I want a sub or a garbage plate! Grrrr....lol

Thank you.

Their coupons are in the yellow pages or in the Rochester coupon book in which my gf has.

You can also copy them on your home copier so you don't run out of your favorites. We used to keep an envelope in both cars with plenty of the coupons we liked. BG's because of locations and were never caught without them.
