Opening day customers at Moonburger's newest Poughkeepsie location will walk away with free burgers for a year.

In 2021 Moonburger opened its first location in Kingston, New York. The restaurant was an instant hit despite missing one classic hamburger ingredient: meat. Customers swear Moonburger's plant-based menu items taste even better than the real thing and continue to come back for more.

The restaurant was so popular that it soon spawned a second location in New Paltz. And now, Moonburger is getting ready for its Poughkeepsie Debut.

Moonburger has transformed the Chestnut Mobile on Route 9 into a spacey fast-food mecca. Funky lights and a design straight out of a science fiction movie await customers at the soon-to-open restaurant.

Visitors will be able to use touch screens embedded in a vintage ice machine to order their food to go or to eat-in at the counter or in a booth with glowing seats and a porthole that makes you feel like you're in a rocket ship.
