Annie's Snack Shack in Rockland
I live near one of the last original 50's drive-up hamburger stands in the Hudson Valley and still owned and run by the same family. Its in Rockland County on Route 9W in Stony Point N.Y While Annie's no longer has waitresses that serve you at your car, most everything else about them is as it was back then including the overhead neon sign. They still have the open window service and outdoor seating. Also have a full indoor dining room. The food is what you would expect from a place like this. I'd say comparable to most diner food. Also they host a classic car show every Monday evening. Unfortunately there is rumor the place is up for sale and talk of it being demolished and replaced by a bank.
Well it looks like its been confirmed. Annie's will be closing Wednesday August 15th. Was just there last night and heard it straight from Annie herself. Also there's an article in todays Journal News about the closing. In the article she states she is sorry she took the developers offer and says if she could do it over again she probably would not sell. She feels bad for all her loyal customers.
Although I would mourn the loss of an old-school establishment such as Annie's for historical reasons, the food there left something to be desired (IMHO). I didn't the ingredients were very good quality, and neither was there preparation.
And why the heck do we need ANOTHER freakin' bank in Rockland???
