So, if I want to experience an authentic Spiedie I need to go to Binghamton?

As far as the narrative goes, yes, if not Endicott to be more specific: https://whatscookingamerica.net/Hist...es/Spiedie.htm

https://www.spiedies.com/about_us.php

With that said, I’ve had them from a local place in Syracuse that’s pretty good(Uncle Chubby’s).

Somebody should open up something. Food is one thing that gets over boundaries.
I feel bad for you. Thoughts and prayers, man.

Depends. How do you feel about eating garbage plates in Schenectady?

This is Binging with Babish demonstrating how to make the Garbage Plate. This is a very Rochester meal he shows. The Garbage Plate with Zweigles white hots and a Genny Beer.

In Rochester many local restaurants call themselves "hots" and serve their own take on the Garbage Plate which they'll call a "plate". Zweigles is a Rochester company that creates "white hots" and "red hots".

If you're trying it for the first time, the only acceptable plate to try is 2 cheeseburgers/mac salad/french fries/everything (hot sauce (which means something different in Rochester)/mustard/onions.)


The white hot plates can be good, you can experiment with swapping out the french fries for something else, but to me this is the "flagship" plate that should be tried first.

They forgot to put onions on the final topping. Also. I NEVER put catsup on mine. When you order "everything" on it, that means Nancy's Mustard, onions and hot sauce only. I believe the original used cold Gramma Brown beans, but most people get the Mac salad. Always home fries, not French fries. A couple of slices of sour dough bread and butter. BTW, Nancy's Mustard is originally from Rochester too. We even have a Mustard St. where their headquarters were. Enjoy


If you are making this at home and don't have the time to make the hot sauce, I've found "Coach Tony's" hot sauce to be the closest, although there may be others

I think you meant French's mustard.

You are correct, "everything" has never included ketchup anywhere I've been, even though personally I always put it on along with Frank's Red Hot if it's around. Mustard, hot sauce, onions is the standard.
