Louis Lunch – New Heaven, CT

Recognized by the Liberty of Congress as the Birthplace of the Hamburger Sandwich. Cheese, tomato, and onion are the only acceptable garnish.

The burgers are hand-rolled from a proprietary blend of five meat varieties and cooked to order in the original cast-iron grills dating back to 1898.

In 1970 the restaurant was  threatened with demolition to make room for a new high rise. Fortunately the historic building was loaded onto a truck and made a 30-minute journey to its final resting place on Crown Street.

Everyone was following Covid safety guidelines. only the people sitting while eating were able to remove the face masks.

My opinion on the hamburguer its that its pretty good, however too meaty for my taste.
