Newish in Pawling

Jim Leff Nov 17, 2012 08:12 PM

Brand new, looks good: Karens's Drive-In Restaurant 410 Route 22 Pawling; 845-878-6654. It's less than a mile south of Heinchon Dairy.

A bit further north, also on the east side of 22 and set back further from the road, is Rincon Latino. I didn't get an address.

Has anyone tried either?

    I eat breakfast there once in a while and they usually have good food and good service. Nothing to write home about but perfectly fine.

      Karen's has been there, virtually unchanged, for about 20 years. Karen did recently update her menu (just the menu itself - not the selections). Seriously though the food is great, service is fine. Lots of locals from Pawling eat there regularily including me.

        Huh! Building and sign looks new, and for a couple weeks every time I tried to go in it was closed with workmen doing stuff inside. Maybe just update work. Thanks for the endorsement, I did get a good vibe. Will try soon.

        What do people think about the wood fired pizza truck up the road?

          I go by Karen's a lot and never noticed anthing going on, but maybe I just missed it. She does close at 3:00 PM. Someone else had the place before Karen. I think it was called Holiday House or something like that. I went there in 1978.

          I have heard one good comment about the pizza truck and a few negative (including me). The dough is a bit different and not to my liking. Also asked the guy about thin-crust pizza and he said he would make it really thin. Well, his idea of thin crust certainly isn't mine. It was standard medium crust. Pizza is a really personal thing. Give it a try and see how you like it.

        There is a Karen's in Pawling that has been around for some time.,Roadfood reviewed it, Did they open a new restaurant, add a drive in/thru? I've always wanted to try both, but when we are up that way...we always stop at Big W's.
