This is a typical fast food place. I wasn't pleased with their hamburger. The meat was ground too course and so it was too chewy for my taste. I prefer the one in Canandaigua as it has a better Ice Cream parlor. The French Fries are good though.

I consider this fast food but quality is better and the other burger joins, which I won't eat. My last visit I was with a couple of cousins and we had the fish fry, It wasn't bad and they have big servings.

They have great burgers and the Junker Plates are awesome. The ice cream and milkshakes are really good too! On Sunday's and Wednesday's the Junker Plate is only $5 so thats always a plus for people on a budget looking to get full.

I have been to every Tom Wahl's there is in the greater Rochester NY area. This one was not up to par. The food was pretty close but the facility was a bit "worn/dirty". It was not so busy yet the tables remained dirty from previous customers.

Always recommend Tom Wahl's if you want a fresh burger. Food is very good and so are the curly fries. Service is usually very good as well.
