Glenwood Drive-In

2538 Whitney Ave., Hamden, CT - (203) 281-0604

Glenwood has been around longer than my grandfather! When he went to Hamden High School, he, along with the football team, would visit Glenwood. It holds a lot of special memories for me, and I always remember my grandfather when I go there.

It sucks to have food allergies, and all that I can get is a bunless grilled chicken on a plate. The french fries make up for it, and I am happy to say they are gluten free, and not fried together with the onion rings. I hate those fancy batter-dipped french fries that these newfangled restaurants have out there that I can't eat. So it is my ultimate pleasure to be able to
enjoy french fries again. Thanks Glenwood.

If you want to blow your diet one day, give a stop by, and I suggest the lobster roll. It's loaded with butter; used to be one of my favorites (when I was allergy free). There's nothing like it: it's fresh, it's buttery, tender, and you can eat the whole package. Go for it, get off your diet and go!

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.
