“A local treasure”
Reviewed 10 February 2009

I live in Rochester, not far from Knapp's Dairy Bar. Yes, it is pricey. In this case, you get what you pay for. Buns are made fresh daily for Knapp's only, the burgers are hand formed from fresh, high quality beef, the fries are to die for (I order the seasoned fries) and the milkshakes are the kind I remember from my childhood. They are so big, they have to give you the metal canister with the "leftovers". When I get a craving for a Knapp's, nothing else will do! In addition, the diner is authentic 50's ... no reproduction anything here.
