McSweeney's

535 N. Margaret St., Plattsburgh, NY - (518) 562-9309

In the foreground is a wienerless sauceburger, signified by the toothpick -- nothing but chili sauce. In the background is a standard Michigan, including the red hot. Note the buns, which are unique to the region. At first glance they look like standard Northeast split tops, but they are closed at each end, forming a trough -- all the better to hold dog, sauce, mustard, and onions.

McSweeney's menu offers both French fries and homemade French fries for four bits extra. Of course, either is available smothered with chili sauce. This picture is the homemade fries, which are quite good.

There's comfortable seating indoors, but car hop service is the traditional way to enjoy a Michigan. And there are picnic tables for fair-weather dining.
