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.
Some of us grew up calling it "being poor and digging in the fridge for leftovers," but that doesn't have the same ring to it.
It doesn't stop with just the garbage plate, though. Now there is a garbage pizza!

And there's really not much to say after that.
