Comfort fare was discovered during the Great Depression, when people ran out of normal cuisine and started eating their deep-fried pillows. Dine on plush deliciousness with today’s Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of comfort fare at Nick Tahou Hots’s West Henrietta Road location.

Since it was founded in 1918, Nick Tahou Hots has been a city staple, overloading patrons with a steady diet of every type of comfort cuisine imaginable precariously piled atop a single plate. The resulting Garbage Plate varies depending on the eclectic tastes of the individual—the signature dish begins with a choice of main ingredient, such as hamburger ($7), red hot ($7), white hot ($7), chicken tenders ($8.50), grilled cheese ($5), veggies ($8.50) or crowd favorite cheeseburger ($7.50). The main dish is piled atop your choice of macaroni salad or home fries, creating a combination that slowly lulls patrons into a satisfying stupor, forcing friends to transport each other via wheelbarrow back to their vehicles. The menu also hosts more traditional fare such as classic cheeseburgers ($2.50) and old-school italian sausage ($2.50) accompanied by drinks such as Intense Chocolate Milk ($1.50).

My cheeseburger plate was as delicious as I remembered, and still the best hot sauce around!
