Burgers are their specialty and they have a decent variety. They come with fries which are tasty. The cheese curds were awesome; hand breaded very lightly and local cheese that almost continued melting in your mouth. The chicken tenders are made from cuts of breast meat and very lightly breaded. The customer service was ok. Went there for a birthday which gets you nothing extra here.

Newt's is known for their great burgers but a hidden secret is their nachos which are the best around.

This was the second time we have dined here at this particular Newt's. We had relatives in town and they wanted to go to Newt's for lunch. Yeah I know they have a reputation and people seem to love them, at least the locals do. I have never really joined that bandwagon. They serve up a lot of greasy food....maybe that is the draw?
This time I had the Patty Melt. It's really not that bad, but just average. This is a diner disguised as a finer restaurant. A similar type of place in Rochester, with less fanfare is Pappy's (northwest side on the frontage road of Hwy 52). They have a similar menu, but better, friendlier service and the food is quite a bit better.

Although the menu has more of a selection, the food is not the same as Newt's other location. The restaurant is larger and the staff is friendly, but it doesn't compare to the original one downtown.

The onion rings were fantastic, just like restaurants used to make when they did their own. Loved them. The blue cheese burgers were also amazing. Service was friendly and helpful, and they just laughed and took it away when I said I could not deal with popcorn...not ever....in any fashion. Very knowledgeable about their beers and wine. Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
