Harry's Drive-In

104 Broadway, Colchester, CT - (860) 537-2410

I have been going to Harry's since I could walk. I am now 22 years old and it is by far my favorite place to eat. We live 45 minutes away and will visit Harry's on a weekly basis in the summertime. Harry's was a popular hang-out for my grandparents during the heyday of the 50s. They frequently told stories of driving to Harry's for dinner with all of their friends.

Their burgers are small and old-fashioned but they are mouthwatering and absolutely delicious. By far the best burger I have ever had. The condiments are fresh and crisp and the hamburg rolls are made locally right up the street at the Colchester Bakery.

Their hot dogs are also delcious! Finish the meal off with some Hershey's ice cream and a stroll through the car show held once a month on the green. It is truly worth the drive and I will continue to go for many years to come.

The beef patty itself is thick, and that's a double layer of cheese. With lettuce and tomato added, the toothpick plunged into the top of the bun is a necessity to prevent complete collapse

While hamburgers are (rightfully) Harry's major claim to fame, we would not kick this fine chili dog off the plate, either.

Hot dogs and hamburgers have separate but equal space on Harry's grill.

After a grueling 45 minute wait in the cold and threat of rain the promised land is in sight!

Harry's is a rugged sort of drive-in, but its dining facilities, at picnic tables among these flowering trees, are positively bucolic.
