The Hudson Valley food world was rocked last year was when Poppy's Burgers in Beacon closed up shop. Happy Burger Days are here again at Meyer's Old Dutch.

When the news broke that Poppy's Burgers and Fries was closing down, people were baffled and bummed. How could such a successful place just shut down? There were no problems, the owner just wanted to try something else after being there for years. We can all appreciate that, but what about a great burger in Beacon?

The Poughkeepsie Journal reports that Meyer's Old Dutch Food & Such is officially open in the old Poppy's location and they are serving up some really good burgers. Not only that, but the menu has some variety.

In addition to beef burgers, the menu offers lamb, chicken and vegan options with multiple toppings and house-made signature sauces, plus hand-cut fries, sweet potato fritters and salads. All items will be available via counter service and served in open seating and a back open-air patio.

Meyer's Old Dutch is owned by the same person who runs the highly praised Kitchen Sink Food & Drink in Beacon. Owner Brian Arnoff likes working with seasonal ingredients and from what I have read, people are loving the burgers at Meyer's. Check it out at 184 Main Street in Beacon.
