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 cheeseburgers but apparently they are. They serve up 90% lean beef burgers with choice of American, Swiss, pepper jack and habanero cheese with bacon, jalapeno, lettuce, tomato and onion with special sauce on a brioche roll. Yes please!
