Hiding inside of an old church building that was built in 1890,
The Playhouse & Swillburger in Rochester is a dining attraction that you won't want to miss.
A beautiful building that's managed to stand the tests of time, The Playhouse & Swillburger's location has served as a local church and theater in the past.
Step into Swillburger and you'll be greeted by a friendly face waiting to take your order, all while you're surrounded by beautiful wood ceilings and walls.
Putting a unique twist on your average American burger joint, Swillburger features whimsical pops of color that will quickly lead your eyes all around the restaurant.
The vibrant theme doesn't end just yet, the main area of the building known as The Playhouse will bring out your inner child.
Transforming the empty space into something truly magical, The Playhouse features balconies that overlook the main level.
Bring your meal upstairs and from the balconies you'll be able to see down below, where other guests will be enjoying the different arcade games and amazing bar.

Now that you know some of the reasons why we love this place so much, let's get back to the savory food and what exactly you should order.
Swillburger serves guests buns that are from the local
Flour City Bread Company, turning any menu item into a small slice of heaven right on your plate.
One of our favorite items that you can find on the menu is the Fantasy Tots. Let the drooling commence.
A menu item that changes weekly, Swillburger's Fantasy Tots is a surprise you'll love unveiling once you get to the restaurant. Guests are welcome to call ahead to see what tots are being featured on the menu currently, or they can wait and see what's being served up on the menu once they arrive. If you're lucky, maybe you'll show up on a day that they're serving Pizza Tots! Aside from the flavorful Fantasy Tots, the menu also always has Classic Tots.
While we'd love nothing more than to eat epic tots all day long, you should probably go ahead and pair them up with one of Swillburger's fantastic burgers.
If you decide to feast on one of these amazing burgers, you'll be happy to hear that Swillburger sources its 100% natural beef from
Seven Bridges Farm
in Lima, New York! Another bonus? Swillburger is always willing to make their menu items Vegan friendly (aside from the bacon and cheese). If you haven't managed to hear your stomach rumble after seeing what this place has to offer, you may want to book yourself a doctor's appointment to make sure you'll feeling alright.
