Guida's

484 Meriden Rd., Middlefield, CT - (860) 349-9039

Breakfast is quite exceptional. The pancakes, while huge, are very light and fluffy. One can get fresh fruit added to them for a special treat. None of that canned, goo-laden fruit-like food product here. There should be waffles, but one cannot expect everything! Lunch is quick and good, if a bit greasy. Hot dogs are crisp with a good snap to them. Buns are split top, buttered and grilled, the way the Almighty meant them to be. Nice milkshakes.

What is missing from this picture of two ten-inch chili dogs? The answer, of course, is mustard. A line of the right yellow stuff finishes off the sweet, meaty chili with authority.

"Guida's menu boasts of serving Angus burgers. The meat does taste good, but I felt the patty a bit stingy on size. The "Rancher" configuration adds a delicious tangle of fried-soft onions on top, plus cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce. The bun is soft and absorbent and, while by no means a sophisticated breadstuff, the perfect mitt for this drive-in sandwich."

Split buns such as this are a New England custom; their design makes them easy to butter and cook on the grill right next to the lovely hot dogs they envelop.

The $6.25 Rancher includes not only the deluxe hamburger but a serving of pretty good French fries.

At the junction of Route 66 and 147, Guida's has been a hot-dog haven for more than half a century. Not visible left of the photo: picnic tables for al fresco dining.

The two-for-one special is a great bargain. A pair of these hot dogs is twenty-inches of tube steak. With a side of fries or onion rings and a milk shake, that's a mighty meal.
