Get ready for huge portions, but they are as big on taste as they are in size. This is small restaurant decorated like your grandmother or great-grandmother’s kitchen. Each table is different. I recommend the turkey club that is so big it comes with a...More

First time here but I've been hearing great things for a while. Parking was hard to find, 30 min wait for seats (around noon on a Saturday), and it took longer than I expected to get our food. Oh, but once we got to the...More

Best homemade breakfast sausage, bread, and rolls, all making for a great meal. The pancake is the size of a pizza. WOW!

Shmeg's is just west of Rochester, NY. I was calling on a customer and searching for a restaurant close by. Shmeg's popped up. It is definitely a hole in the wall restaurant that I guarantee most people would drive by. I debated about going in...More

Shmeg’s is still great, but today I didn’t want bacon and they still gave it to me. I wanted more sausage in exchange for the bacon. This was a take out order, but next time I will check my order before I leave the restaurant....More

This place gives you great quantities of food....but it is not clean, the staff is not friendly, and the day we went there it was so hot you couldn't enjoy your meal. They do not have air conditioning and it is small and stuffy!
