I love it when the mainstream media folks do their part to champion the vintage, retro and cool old places I love so much here on RetroRoadmap – that’s why I’m so psyched to let you know that the episode of Food Network’s Diner’s Drive Ins and Dives that features Hildebrandt’s Restaurant in Williston Park NY is scheduled to air on Monday March 28!
You may remember that I had a swell visit to the ice cream counter of Hildebrandt’s last summer. And I’ve just seen on their Facebook page that their in the midst of creating chocolates bunnies for Easter.
Not only known for their sweets, Hildebrandt’s is rightly known for their burgers – I actually found out about this 1927 gem of a place from reading George Motz’s book Hamburger America, and I’m thinking that their burgers or some other savories might be featured on the TV show.
Congrats to Hildebrandt’s – I hope this brings them lots and lots of customers – as long as they promise to keep their authentic old fashioned charm!
