Comments: Moved to Penfield two years ago and immediately assessed my plate options. Penfield Hots is the best of the nearby plate joints. It's a tiny place; usually (in my experience) there's just one employee there. They make a good honest plate that sticks to the classic Tahou's style. Portion size is good, burgers and mac/HF are good, and most critically the sauce is excellent.
