Today is national burger day, so there is your excuse to order out in case you needed one.

There are many, many places to enjoy a good burger in Connecticut, here are some of them.

If you find yourself in New Haven, head to Louis’ Lunch, the birthplace of the American hamburger. They have been making burgers for 113 years, so you can’t go wrong. Just don’t ask for ketchup.

Ted’s Restaurant serves up the world-famous steamed cheeseburger. The main location is in Meriden, but they have added a second restaurant in Cromwell. It’s worth a trip to see how it’s done and to enjoy the perfectly melted cheese.
