Stop #7 – Ted’s Restaurant, Cromwell, CT
A non hot dog place on my trip. I was really craving a steamed cheeseburger. I’ve made them at home before, but wanted to try the original. I went here for breakfast. Plenty of parking. Inside is very roomy with a bunch of tables. There’s more seating behind me.
The first thing I noticed was this sign in the window:
I said to my friend, “Who the f— would support Breast Cancer?” and more importantly who the f— donates $1 to get their name on the sign. A few seconds later I realized it was covered up by the second one.. I hadn’t seen the full message.
We had steamed cheeseburgers and I ordered some loaded fries. I think it was jalapenos, chili, cheese, and bacon. Steamed cheeseburgers have no flavor at all. I already knew this from making them at home. Moistest burgers I’ve ever eaten, though. They were okay. The fries were fantastic, just kind of too much for my stomach to have for breakfast.
