FYI -

Larry's Landing is no more.

It's now called Vickey's on the River.

Is Vickey's any good? What do they specialize in?

      Louis Lunch = vertical broiled
      Ted's = steamed
      Sycamore = gridled
      Swanky Franks = someone mentioned them - yes there have reopened, it's really more of a hotdog place, never had a burger (which are gridled)
      Burger Bar (Norwalk) = gridled (I believe); Very good, my favorite burger in lower Fairfield County - had to add them to the list

      There used to be a good place to get charbroiled burgers in Wilton, CT right off route 7 heading into Ridgefield. The building is now Dexter's (as reviewed on roadfood) and owned by new management. For the past 15 years they seem to change management every 2-3 years. In it's current state, as Dexter's, the burgers are not good. Charbroiled? Yes. But they are made from skimpy preformed and frozen 1/3 pound patties that are overwhelmed by the bun on which they are served - not recommended.

      Go to Louis Lunch then Ted's. If you are heading up to Fairfeild into Litchfield County, then hit up the Sycamore which is great for their burgers, nothing else. Their chili dog is pretty bad (bland, thin chili served on a skinless hot dog) as well as there fries and onion rings (both of which are frozen). Follow the Sycamore up by heading to Clamp's (never been, but heard good things about their burgers).

        I think it would be a mistake not to mention Westport's other great burger spot, The Black Duck. Just around the corner from Mario's, it has a decidedly downscale, but local flavor. At their best, the burgers are near-perfect bar burgers. Consistency is sometimes an issue, but this is a down-home, local, and real spot that us Saugatuck Swamp Guineas hit a few times a week -- many times after having a beer at Mario's first.

            Plan B Burger Bar now also in Glastonbury as of last Friday. Not a 'roadfood' kind of place in the sense of Harry's in Colchester but an excellent place for a sit down burger and beer.

                I will add my endorsement of Plan B as serving a fine up-scale burger.  An interesting place if you like good beer too.  Their gimmick on the alcoholic beverage side appears to be only serving beer and booze made in the USA.  There are now four, all around the Hartford area, and their web site threatens expansion to Boston and NYC.  I have my doubts that the concept can sustain itself in such competitive markets, but what do I know?
