I never knew Nick Tahoes was considered one of Rochesters finer eating establisments!
A garbage plate is definately on my bucket list someday, has been for years. Also someday I will have to take a drive and try to find this "Beutiful downtown Rochester"

How to eat a Nick Tahou's Garbage Plate
Nick Tahou Hots is a nice dining establishment situated in the beautiful downtown Rochester region. Before I came to Ambrosia, I had been hearing about its famous cuisine for many years. During my time at Ithaca College, many physical therapy students returned from their summer studies in Rochester beaming with tales of the fine Rochester eatery. In an earlier stint with The Bowie Baysox (Class AA affiliate of The Baltimore Orioles), much of the front office was from Rochester, and they yearned for the days when a fine meal at Nick's after a Red Wings game would strengthen their camraderie. My foray into this innovative dining experience was inevitable.
Now, for the first time on the Internet, I bring you instructions on how to consume a Nick Tahou's Garbage Plate. It is the preferred restaurant for anyone making a pilgrimage to Ambrosia's hallowed halls.

Starve Yourself for a Day
Avoid ingestion of comestibles for one to two days prior to your arrival at Nick's. This will ensure that a proper amount of space exists within your stomach for the Garbage Plate. Nothing is more embarrassing than leaving 3/4 of the plate to waste because your stomach has no available space.

Order the Plate
First timers should order a hot dog or hamburger plate. I prefer cheeseburger plates, myself. After ordering, you must wait three to five minutes for your food to arrive. Talk to the friendly people at Nick's. They'll love you if you're nice to them.

I haven't ate at Nick Tahou's since the cops called me begging me to evict two dykes ......
" these dykes are worst than Nick Tahou's at midnite " " Please evict them " says the cop.

That place would be the last place I would go to and I have spent all my life here. Just the thought of a garbage plate makes me want to throw up! It would be like eating a pound of lard. Why call it garbage? Just call it a grease plate. Give your body a break and stay away from that grease pit.

Nick Tahou's is a crap hole . The food was better in the 80' to 90's .

Now it's inferior . The place has really gone down hill .

Everyone makes plates now . The turkish place on E. Ridge rd was making great plates , but even they did cut back on quality as well as quantity .

I make a slammin' plate at home now . Meat sauce and all .

Chee burger 's w/ mac/home fries, fresh bread , and Tabasco . Yummy
Washed down with a cool refreshing beverage .

In the early 90's you could hardly finish a plate . Now they are TINY .

A plate is a nice occasional treat..Certainly don't need to starve yourself for one day to eat one..let's not get crazy..it's not that different/huge..check out your standard fish fry.

The thing is...you don't need to go to Tahou's to get a good one.

Jimmy Z's in Brockport has a good one..and Bill Grays sells them for 5.99 on Tuesdays. Their hot sauce is a bit sweeter but spicier than I've had(good to me) Their mac salad is not as good but their cheeseburgers are perfect for plate and they have hot crispy crinkle cut fries.
