Quickway Diner

68 Rt. 17K, Bloomingburg, NY - (845) 733-1012
Posted By Michael Stern on 8/22/2002 3:41:00 AM
The Quickway is a round-the-clock diner, a used car lot specializing in exotic vehicles, and an ice cream stand. It is run by Mr. Teek & Vee Persaud, two characters whose likenesses appear on billboards along Route 17, and whose slogan is Take it from Teek, take it from Vee, The Quickway Diner is the Place to Be!

We can’t argue with these guys. Route 17 is not a real appetite-friendly road; and the Quickway can be counted on, any time of night or day, for a darn good square meal. The menu is huge, featuring generous breakfasts with handsome muffins on the side and whole rosters of sandwiches and hot meals. We are particularly fond of the hot roast beef sandwich at lunch: quality meat, good gravy, and real mashed potatoes, and a salad known as the “house salad,” that is in fact a Greek salad loaded with feta cheese and vast numbers of briny Calamata olives.

As you enter, you can choose between a dining room straight ahead and an old-fashioned diner area to the right. We prefer the latter, with its counter and booths and virtually instantaneous service. Between these two areas is the pastry case, filled with baroque cakes and pies guaranteed to induce sugar shock.

The salad listed on the menu as a house salad is in fact a Greek salad: loaded with feta cheese and firm-fleshed Calamata olives.

The old-diner part of the quicway features a counter and booths, and lightning-fast service.

Route 17 west of Newburgh is not blessed with a bounty of great Roadfood. But you can count on this place for a good meal any time of night or day.
