DDD - The Eveready Diner, Hyde Park NY

On a road trip to New York state, my friend Kurt and I took a detour to check out the Eveready Diner in Hyde Park, NY.  My memory of the visit was a little bit fuzzy as I was nursing what was probably the worst hangover of my life.  After getting hammered in Albany, and staying the night at a dreadful flea-bag hotel, we forged on to Hyde Park.  No amount of grease could cure what I was going through.  All I seem to remember from the experience was triple shots of top-shelf scotch, a very uncomfortable bed, a shower with a moving floor, something about goats written on a window, getting stuck in a condemned elevator... and the Eveready Diner.  I do believe I ordered the Ruben Sandwich, a bowl of French Onion Soup, a root beer and a kick-ass piece of fluffy cheesecake.  From what I remember, the soup kicked ass, the sandwich was nothing to write home about and the cheesecake was plentiful and tasty as hell.  I'd like to go back one day in a more human state to judge the site properly, but for now - this is my review of the Eveready Diner.

On a side note, the Ruben is being compared to some pretty healthy competition.  I've had Rubens at Katz's and Wolf's in New York as well as the Stage Deli in Las Vegas.
