Best Burger in CT

the burger between two grilled cheese is served everywhere is currently on the menu at max burger in west hartford...

river tavern has the BEST burger on the PLANET...i love that is definately tops on my list

Piatti, Glastonbury, CT

what a complimentary and most of all, morale boosting review of this new restaurant....people, i find, don't give a new place any time to feel comfortable in their shoes, so to speak....everyone is always more than willing to crucify at the first mistake they either see, or more importantly, perceive to see...

good luck piatti! will frequent you soon

Good food, good service, reasonable prices, and clean - Simsbury, Canton, and Avon, CT

what about dish & dat? anyone try it yet?

River Tavern [moved from Restaurant L & E thread]

river tavern, in my opinion, is hands down the best restaurant in ct...i love it...sure, service can be a bit "spotty"...but when you are eating food this glorious and are in the company of someone you want to be with, does it actually matter whether or not service is top notch? give the servers a break...most are young, work especially hard to please and will, if asked, try and accomodate you the best they can.

Best Burger in CT

i've been to burger bar and wasn't really that impressed...i happen to love river tavern's hamburger, in chester, ct...i'm kinda afraid to ask why noone has mentioned max burger..i've also heard that mustard and ketchup in manchester is good.
