    I have a client in Batavia and often stop at the Miss Batavia diner near the corner of 33 and 5. I will definitely try the Pok-A-Dot my next time out there!

    Thanks so much for this walk down memory lane. Growing my grandfather was friends with Trigger and Phil and he would take us donw to the Polk-a-Dot for hot dogs. My sister and I got to sit at the same counter seats. I’m so glad the place is still going strong.

    So good to read about the Polka Dot Restaurant! I knew who owned it and I’ve had their good food too. The history is very interesting. Thank you for sharing with us.

    I was born and raised in Batavia, I left there in 1960 headed west to Las Vegas. I have the best memories of the Polka Dot. Trudging through the snow or rain for a white hot or a beef on wick! I stop there every time I go home, but for some reason the food taste different. I visit all the old hangouts, alot of them are gone. The Plaza (Post House) Don’s Dinette, Dagwoods, Critics (My Dad Bill Torcello the plumber, would take us there at Easter time for our baskets filled with chocolate. Oh so many good memories!
