PPP's Scrooge's Snack, foreground, and Hobo Special (Rochester Voice photo)

For almost 50 years Poor People's Pub has been a food and drink destination for folks traveling up Route 16 to the White Mountains as well as folks that live just down the street.

And their mantra hasn't changed either: "Nothing fancy, just good grub."

Same with their service; it's friendly, efficient, but not obsequious, which I detest.

We went on Tuesday and found a good-sized, socially distancing lunchtime crowd.

I got a Scrooge's Snack ($4.99), which is a grilled cheese and comes with chips, but no pickle. For an extra buck, I added bacon. Now where have you seen add bacon for a buck in 2020?

My gluten-free sandwich was beautifully grilled a golden brown, but the American cheese it came with tasted a bit processed. The bacon was excellent and aplenty.

Meanwhile, Martha got the Hobo Special ($8.99), which is lean corned beef, swiss cheese and sauerkraut on grilled rye.

The corned beef and cheese was fine, she said, but the sauerkraut was a little tired, and there wasn't enough of it to complement the other ingredients.

The food came out fast, in about five minutes and as I said the luncheon tab was painless. And there's something to be said for that!

Poor People's Pub is located 1 Witchtrot Road, Sanbornville, NH 03872
Half-Mile off Route 16 at the Junction of Routes 109 and 153
