The Lunchbox

620 East Main Street, Meriden, CT - (203) 238-0313
Posted By Jeff Beeton on 3/10/2011 7:57:00 PM
My large special breakfast of kielbasa, scrambled eggs, and home fries with rye toast was delicately prepared and presented by the friendly and pleasant owner Anita. She told me a little about her victory four months ago as the "Best Steamed Hamburger" competition held in Meriden. The win included a large trophy, which Anita proudly displays in her Lunchbox restaurant.

Although I visited during a slow mid-morning, Anita offered to whip up her steamed burger. I declined, saying I will return sometime during lunch to experience the full pleasure of the meal.

The Lunchbox’s steamed cheeseburg is incredibly juicy, and its molten cheese is wonderfully tangy.

Some people say that central Connecticut's steamed cheeseburger is an acquired taste. The Lunchbox is an ideal place to acquire it: this is one sensationally good burger.

Donna said she had made the chicken soup just that morning. I believe her. It was homey and delicious.

Open only for breakfast and lunch, the Lunchbox is a must-stop while in Meriden.
