The Hopewell Inn in Hopewell Junction took me by surprise, as it was one of my old hangouts from years ago, and it is one of the Top 5 Dive Bars in the Hudson Valley. I used to just drink at Hopewell Inn, so I never even thought of the fact that they would be known for their burgers but apparently they are.

They serve up 90% lean beef burgers with a choice of American, Swiss, pepper jack, and habanero cheese with bacon, jalapeno, lettuce, tomato, and onion with special sauce on a brioche roll.

Moonburger has locations in Kingston, New Paltz, and Poughkeepsie. Ever since last year when I was introduced to Moonburger at their New Paltz by comedian Shannon Cooke, I have become a huge fan of the establishment ( a superfan if you will), in fact, it's the best burger I've ever had, and it's plant-based!

You gotta try the classic cheeseburger which is a griddle Impossible patty with American cheese, signature double onion, dill pickle, crunchy lettuce, and special sauce on a Schmidt's potato roll. Follow them on Facebook.
