So this is it! The last remaining Roy Rogers in New York City! Riese Restaurants also replaced Roy Rogers around the corner on 34th Street with more contemporary options, so I wouldn't count on this one lasting.
It's a real time warp walking into this place. Roy's classic photo is hanging there, as are many pieces of Roy Rogers memorabilia. There are two former heated oven-type things to keep food warm, but they're no longer in service and have "for display only" signs on them. Strangely enough there are aluminum wrapped sandwiches "on display".
It took five minutes for service to arrive. I could have walked over to the Nathan's counter, but I was curious how long it would take. I ordered a Gold Rush Chicken Sandwich combo and was given the choice of several sides such as fries, cold slaw, and mashed potatoes. I chose fries. My soda was also served to me and I made my way over to the cashier.
The sandwich and the fries tasted pretty good, no complaints there. While eating I heard a woman outside ask "WTF is Roy Rogers?" Classic... Enjoy it while it lasts.
