Purveyors of great grease

Tom's definitely makes the list on my top ten comfort food restaurants of Rochester, along with Don's Original, Fujiya, Monte Alban (Irondequoit location), Mr. Dominic's, and Amico Pizza... My definition of comfort food does not limit it to one ethnic style. I think of it simply as food that I would crave if I was living somewhere else for an extended period of time. When I was in Spain for six weeks I was surrounded by "great" food, but I wanted to be at Don's for a burger, Mr. Dominic's for a steak, and Amico's picking up a pie. I guess I think of "comfort food" as regional specialties that are constantly/consistently prepared, and readily available within that specific region.

another take on it:
