Business people and students alike have flocked in to try the popular "HOT Plate" which is modeled after the famed "Garbage Plate" of Rochester, New York. These "Plates" have been a Rochester tradition since 1918. The dish, which is the staple of Binghamton HOTS, is an assortment of cheeseburgers, hot dogs, home fries, macaroni salad, or just about anything else the kitchen can cook up, all topped with HOT's homemade Rochester style hot sauce. Binghamton Hots was voted one of the 39 most iconic college town restaurants in the US by USA Today College and College Magazine ranked Binghamton Hots as one of the 10 Best College Town Burger Joints.
