Leno's Clam Bar (Greasy Nick's) still at it in New Rochelle...

I started going to Leno's Clam Bar (more commonly known as: Greasy Nick's) along Pelham Road, New Rochelle, generations ago for their burgers, steamers, fried clams, grilled hotdogs, and corn on the cob swimming in butter. A popular local road foodie spot, if there ever was one. Met my daughter and son-in-law there for lunch al fresco on this beautiful Saturday afternoon. They had come up from Manhattan, and for my daughter, it was deja vu. Used to take her there growing up as we lived down the road for a time, across from Glen Island Park. And, it has not changed much, though now in its 3rd generation. (The operating family is related to comedian Jay Leno :).
We loaded up the table: Their famous cheeseburgers with sautéed onions (a must) and fries; corn on the cob; fried clams with tartar sauce; hot dogs. Thank goodness for all those napkins. You get your own beverages out of the rear. It's still on the honor system, believe it or not. Table service is very friendly and laid back.
The first couple of bites brought back memories galore! Wow...it was a fun lunch reminiscing about it all. As we sat, Greasy Nick's fans kept arriving from every direction...
Any memories of Leno's Clam Bar (Greasy Nick's)?
