    Clank's: home of the Frankenburger... 1lb of meat

    by davecallahan Updated Feb 6, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This family owned restaurant specializes in beef sandwiches. but you can get a decent turkey or chicken or Italian sausage sandwich as well. The best deal in the place is the Roast Beef sandwich with fries for under $6. If you are super-hungry you can try their Frankenburger with a full pound of meat at $8. They have a great selection of ice cream treats for dessert too.

    It is counter-service with small formica tables inside or picnic-like tables outside where it is cooler. The decor is strictly diner and the dress code is whatever is legal.

    The place does a fantastic business and if you get there late in the day you might not get your choice from the menu (they go through a ton of meat).

    They have added a breakfast menu (which I have not tried yet) where you can get a plateful for under $5.

    DiBellas: sub shop

    by davecallahan Updated Oct 29, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I am biased because my niece's husband owns this but I will try to be fair in exclaiming about it.

    The theme for this submarine sandwich store is 1950s. The booths are in red leatherette with dark wood. The floor is black and white checkered tiles. The lighting is globe lamps hung from a ceiling that is dimpled like the old tin-plate ceilings. It is fairly quiet because the booths are set-in below a divider that separates them from the serving counter. The place is very clean and neat. There are a lot of 50s style posters around the wall interspersed with genuine DiBella family photos.

    The service is self-serve from the counter. Place your order for meat, condiments, bread, extras and whether you want a hot or cold sub. You then walk to the cashier and pay for the meal and if it is a cold sandwich, the server has usually finished making your fresh sandwich about the time you get the receipt ( it takes about 5 minutes longer for the hot sandwiches).

    The cost depends on the type of sandwich and the size but the prices all range between $4 and $7. Add in a coke and some snacks for dessert and it will cost you about $10 per person for a filling lunch (you need not leave a tip because it is self-service).

    The hot philly cheese steak is probably the most popular.
    They have some great chocolate chip cookies too (homemade).

    Bill Gray's: not for adults

    The food here is pretty good but the noise is a din.
    The place is set up to entertain kids while they eat.

    It is one big room with all booths and formica tables. There are video-type games in one section of the room. Another section of the room has a clown doing tricks with balloons. Kids are roaming around with ice cream cones dripping.

    You order at the counter and they give you a buzzer-thingy. You go find a table (in a quiet corner if you can find one). All the tables somehow are clean (little table cleaner crew is busy cleaning up). In about 10minutes your buzzer thing vibrates which means you have to go pick up your meal and pay for it. Bill's Famous Burger is a pretty good tasting, lean piece of meat with some tasty sauce on it. The french fries are crispy and not greasy. I like their grilled chicken breast sandwich with cole slaw and green salad. You get the food and drinks for under $10 per person which is a pretty good deal for the portions you receive.

    So if you can stand the ruckus and the noise, you can get yourself some good food for a good price. If the noise is too much, you can always have the meal "to-go" and eat out on the Bill Gray picnic tables by the parking lot.

    Pontillos: the very best

    by davecallahan Updated Jun 29, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have had these pizzas for over 35 years and they have consistently stayed top of the list.
    Nice thick crust with lots of cheese. The sauce is just slightly sweet and they use virgin olive oil and don't overdo it. The bread itself is firm but not too chewy and they burn it just a touch to get that charcoaled flavor.
    The dough is hand made daily and baked in brick and metal ovens on the spot.

    It is counter service with very limited seating (too hot to sit in there in the summer anyways). Most of the business is call-in/pick-up or delivery. There are always coupons in the paper that offer a large pizza and wings for about $15.

    When you are on vacation, pizza ordered and delivered to the motel is a great way to stay lazy and comfortable after a long day of driving.

    There are now many other menu items besides pizzas and you can see them on the website listed below.

    Marks Pizzeria: like mother like daughter

    by davecallahan Written Jun 13, 2007

    My daughter is just like her mother.... they both prefer Marks Pizzeria over my objections.
    (It isn't that Mark's is a bad pizza, it is that Pontillo's is such a good pizza).

    My daughter lives in the area and when we visit them we are often treated to pizza and wings (it seems that the younger generation just doesn't have time to cook!).
    Mark's makes a decent pizza and gives you quantity without too much price. They always have coupons in the newpapers and flyers and even in the inserts in the telephone books.

    The crust is okay, the toppings are plenty and varied (17 different ones at last count).
    And if you aren't into pizza, then they have calzones and chicken dinners and submarine sandwiches and green salads.

    A pizza is about $10, a dinner is about $7, a sub is $6 and a salad is $5. So depending on your taste and your wallet you can pick and choose. (they deliver for $2).

    Panera: It ain't just bread, baby.....

    by davecallahan Written Feb 18, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Panera company may have started out as making some of the best fresh bread but they have augmented their franchise with a full menu of healthy lunch foods.

    Sandwiches (and I mean stacks of meat and cheese and fillers) and hot soups and fresh salads. Or you can come in after 5pm and get BBQ chicken, roasted mushrooms and fried onions and peppers as well as the lunch fare. And you can always get a side order of your favorite kind of hot bread fresh from the oven.
    There is even peanut-butter-and-jelly and toasted cheese for the finicky kids.

    See the website for daily specials and varieties offered from the bakery section.

    Favorite Dish: Smokehouse Turkey on 3-cheese bread..... watch out stomach, here it comes

    Rubino's Imported Food: Rubino Sub

    by davecallahan Updated Feb 18, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    REAL italian food

    This small store is a bonanza of imported Italian foods. (My grandmother, God bless her soul, would have loved this place).
    But besides the grocery stock, they also sell homemade pizzas, calzones and their speciality.... the Rubino Sub. The bun is their own concoction (family dough recipe, tastes faintly like their pizzas) piled high with provolone, prosciutto, shredded lettuce, onions, pepper slices, oil and vinegar. If you'd prefer roast beef or turkey, then you can have it. Mustard or mayonaise, no problem. Chicken fingers..... no way, go to KFC, this is an ITALIAN store.

    The service is counter service and in the summer they have some limited outdoor seating but mostly it is carry out. The staff is friendly and fast.... with a "have it your way" attitude.

    The sandwiches are average size but the price is below average for the area.
    And don't forget they have pizzas and calzones you can order too. They will make and deliver party platters if you need one.

    There also is a store in Rochester on East Ridge Road.

    Favorite Dish: Hot ham, provolone, oil and vinegar (leave off the onions because of my ulcer).
