Me and my girlfriend came here for the garbage plate and let me tell you I was not disappointed I have had garbage plates in the past that we're just ok. But this was really good and the food came out in under 10mins. I also ordered pancakes that were super fluffy, and moist. The picture of the garbage plate... More

I will eat at Mark's when I am hungry later at night or when I am too tired to cook dinner. Their sky burger is my favorite burger there, and I like their wings combo too. Their pizza logs and mozzarella sticks are always golden brown to perfection too. The thing about eating there late nights, especially weekends, you find... More

If you're there late night there will be a line and there's a bouncer. If you want food faster ask him if you can order to go (there's a spot at the inside counter) although if you have time sit and people watch. That's half the fun. Plates are really good. Pretty basic but you won't be violently ill the... More

After a gig on a Sunday night in Rochester, as a hungry traveling musician, this place was a god-send, since not much is open (if at all) this time of night. Had a pretty darned good garbage-plate like plate with burger, mac salad, home fries and fixings. Definitely a dive, but I love dives!

First and foremost the staff at this establishment were very personable! I was amazed at the large portions of food that were served for the prices! i took my family of 6 out to eat and four had huge amounts of leftovers; I paid $63 for all of us! Definitely returning to this spot!

A friend wanted me to join him here for lunch, but I was hesitant because of the area's poor reputation. What a pleasant surprise! I was able to partake of one of my favorite Rochester dishes -- the garbage plate -- in a half portion. Perfectly cooked dog and a spicy and tasty hot sauce. Some of the patrons looked... More

We've been going to Marks for over 20 years. It was a favorite hang out for our friends in the 80's with their great, simple, and inexpensive diner food. We took our prospective dates there because of the generous portions and greek-style foods too. The hours - 24/7 - were perfect after a pub crawl. Although we no longer live... More

I was craving junk food at 1 am and my favorite Friendly's was closed. Fired up Yelp and searched for "open" diners. Found this place which apparently is open 24/7 (didn't know a 24/7 place existed in Roch) Located on Monroe it is surrounded by multiple bars and other businesses. I found street parking in front of the diner. On... More

This place is great late night or anytime! I think they have the best garbage plates in Rochester. Always fun to people watch on the weekends.
