K. LaMay’s Steamed Cheeseburgers

690 E. Main St., Meriden, CT - (203) 237-8326
Posted By Scott Morris on 8/25/2011 2:38:00 PM
Having been exposed to Ted's steamed cheeseburgers some 20 or so years ago while working in Meriden I had grown very fond of them. So much so that several times a year I would make a trek into Meriden to sit at the lunch counter for a couple of cheesebugers with a side of home fries. That all changed for me recently after seeing that K. LaMay's has a new shop on Main Street in Middletown.

I will say this: the burgers here are not the gray lump of tasteless meat you might have grown used to. They are super-flavorful and juicy. These burgers are what Ted's should aspire to.

K. LaMay's is the new central Connecticut reigning champ of steamed burgers. I would recommend this as your first stop for this local delicacy. It's just unfortunate that we couldn't get Food TV and Travel Channel back to put this place on the map.

This steamed cheeseburger is bigger, juicier, and more flavorful than the same from Ted’s across town. Bacon adds a crunchy, textural layer to the experience.

I split this steamed cheeseburger with bacon with fellow Roadfooder Wanderingjew, yet I found myself pining for another whole one all to myself.

These steamed cheeseburgers really remind me of the burgers my Grandma used to make me for lunch.

Meriden folks are serious about steamed burgers, and it’s the fresh-every-day bun, quality meat, and Wisconsin sharp cheddar that netted this “Best Classic Burger” trophy for Kevin in a local contest.

One big steamer with bacon and extra cheese is a mighty meal.
