Nick Tahou Hots, a restaurant in Rochester, New York, is known for a meal called the "garbage plate." Alex Tahou opened the restaurant in 1918 and named it after his son Nick. Tahou's grandson, also named Alex, now owns the restaurant that people credit with creating the garbage plate — a base of fried potatoes topped with macaroni salad, baked beans, and whatever else tickles your fancy.
It doesn't stop with just the garbage plate, though. Now there is a garbage pizza!
