Does anyone have a recommendation as to other establishments in that area, just to try some different versions of this local delicacy?
I am reviving this thread because I've become interested in cataloging - and trying - all establishments in CT that serve steamed cheeseburgers.
K LaMay's, Meriden
O'Rourke's Diner, Middletown
Super Natural Market & Deli, Bristol
The Lunch Box, Meriden
The Local Scoop, Rocky Hill (CLOSED)
The Other Place, Berlin (CLOSED)
Dawg House, New Britain (CLOSED)
Here's the one I had at K LaMay's recently, which disappointed me for reasons I've articulated elsewhere
. I actually tried to make it look as good as possible for the photo anyway. It seems like there was a lot of meat, but there really was an inadequate amount of it for the bun and toppings used. There wasn't too much cheese, either, at least not compared to Ted's - you can see some peeking out of the left corner.
Ted's beat them hands down.
