In Connecticut, we’re blessed with some of the best burgers in the entire country. There are so many places to go and get your fix. Here are just some of the places notable for their burgers.

Harry's Place in Colchester, a viewer favorite, has been featured in Roadfood for its incredibly juicy burgers. They also called Harry’s cheeseburger “fast food perfection.”

Harry’s holds the distinct honor of being on the National Register of Historic places.
