Stopped for an early dinner after a recommendation. Burgers were fantastic. Lunch line can get a little long, which means it’s a good place. Staff was super friendly and helpful in helping to plan the rest of our evening.

We love Newts! Made to order so you can actually get a burger medium rare if you want it that way! Great fries. Fish and chips were pretty good too. We look forward to another visit to Rochester and another burger at Newts.
