I have to say, the Glenwood Drive-In is a fine establishment. Everything and anything I've had there has been wonderful. I've yet to try their soft shell crab sandwiches and lobster rolls, but I've heard nothing but good about them.

Their foot-long hot dogs (the only size they sell) are amazing! The bread is always fresh, the dogs are juicy, and the little fixins bar on the side is a great convenience to the customers. You have your choice of diced onions, sauerkraut, hot and spicy relish, sweet relish, ketchup, yellow mustard, and spicy brown mustard. Their onion rings are great too. They are made to order and are battered and fried right there. The clam strips are hand-battered as well, and they are great for any fried clam craving.

After dinner or lunch, go over to Kelly's Kone Konnection for an ice cream cone or a cup. All the ice cream flavors Kelly's offers are homemade! She also makes great ice cream cakes and pies.

The Glenwood Drive-In is at least as famous for its onion rings as for its hamburgers and hot dogs. When you stand in line waiting for your order, you can see them battered and fried.

Glenwood's hot dogs are served the traditional New England way, inside lightly toasted split buns. Add your own condiments.

This charcoal grill fills the dining room with the irresistible aroma of fire-cooked meats.

A hot lobster roll is almost nothing like a cold lobster salad roll. It has no mayo, no lettuce, nothing but lobster meat and butter in the bun.

There is plenty of room in the Glenwood Drive-In lot, but it's almost always crowded. At the far right of the photo is the family's ice cream annex, which some consider among the state's finest parlors.
