Good hamburger at 9.00 US, draft wine and a good dessert at 6.00 plus. Lunch in the 20.00 range.

When it comes to burgers, I'm a traditionalist. Either I want an old-fashioned single-patty burger with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo, on a bun that can stand up to the dressing, or in hipper climes I want a double-patty like Bocado in Atlanta -- just a great bun, two patties of fresh-ground beef and cheese.

But I guess chefs, cooks and restaurant owners have to express their creativity, even in the homely burger.

Like at Shindig in Woodstock, NY. The Shindig Burger, at a rather pricey $12 plus $5 for fries, looks like a traditional burger, but it has a broiled tomato instead of regular sliced tomato, onion chutney instead of sliced onion and a "smokey sauce" instead of mayo.

Okay, this little eatery (about 25 seats) in the hippie-est town north of Chapel Hill, NC, seems popular, and a lot of customers order the Shindig Burger or the Farmhouse Burger, so I must be out of step.

But, as I say, I'm a traditionalist when it comes to important things like cheeseburgers. Even the 1960s music that plays constantly in this and other spots in Woodstock doesn't soothe the savage beast.

The food here is a bit uneven. I have had delicious pancakes here, but at other times dishes that were really disappointing: A salad which wasn't fresh and crispy and a kale wrap that featured unwashed (sandy) kale.

Interesting menu. Had a lamb burger that was absolutely wonderful. Also had a red pepper tomato bisque soup. All delicious. Great location and great food.

Enjoyed lunch in this cute (but overpriced) restaurant located in the heart of Woodstock. Vegetarians & vegans can get a great meal here, but there are meat options as well.
