River Station Restaurant (American & Seafood - Poughkeepsie, New York)
A few days ago, my mom and I decided to take a trip up to Poughkeepsie to visit my brother who goes to school at Marist. We went to lunch at the River Station Restaurant, and the food was unbelievable, plus it has some pretty spectacular views of the Hudson River and Mid-Hudson Bridge too.
For an appetizer, we decided to get the 'Potstickers,' which were good. They were fried chicken and lemongrass dumplings showered in teriyaki sauce. The flavorings over everything were a combination of meaty and salty mixed with some sweetness in there as well and had everything you would want and more in a potsticker.
For my main meal, I got the 'Whiskey Jack's Burger,' which has pepper jack cheese, Jack Daniels BBQ sauce, bacon, onion straws, and a bacon jam topped with a special chipotle burger sauce! I can't even begin to explain how incredible and perfect this burger was, from the burger being succulent to the saltiness and crunchiness of the onion straws to the sweetness mixed with spice for all the sauces. Every bite was heavenly, and I devoured the entire thing.
