May is National Burger Month and there are a number of great burger restaurants to celebrate across Connecticut, from fast food places to burger bars.
Louis' Lunch in New Haven is the birthplace of the Hamburger Sandwich, so it's an ideal place to visit for National Burger Month. Get the original burger and a side of potato salad or potato chips. Just don't ask for anything on your burger other than cheese, tomato and onion.
If you like steamed cheeseburgers, head to Ted's. They've been serving the famous burgers up for more than 50 years. The original location is in Meriden, but there is also a location in Cromwell.
GoldBurgers in Newington is another favorite in Connecticut, with more than 20 specialty burgers. You can celebrate National Burger month with a classic or one of many others. Try the original GoldBurger, which is two patties, American cheese, lettuce, pickles, onions and the signature GoldBurger sauce. The restaurant's fries and hot dogs are also delicious.

Plan b burger will be celebrating National Burger Month by hosting a “Burger and Beer Community Combo-tition.”
The restaurants have created burger and beer pairings that will be rated on their performance in total sales, highest percentage of celebrity burger to total burgers sold, social media engagement, and a “no purchase necessary” vote. The winning burger and beer pair will be announced on May 8.
At Shady Glen in Manchester, you can grab a Big Cheese Burger to celebrate National Burger Month.
Max Burger in West Hartford offers a wide selection of burgers, such as the Sgt. Peppercorn, an 8-ounce peppercorn crusted, Applewood smoked bacon, mushroom, blue cheese-gruyere fondue, buffalo ranch aioli, arugula, and artisan roll burger. You can also get non-beef options like a turkey or tuna burger.
Try the special Jalapeno Burger at Wood’N’Tap — a steak burger topped with Pepper Jack cheese, fried sliced jalapenos, pickled red onion and Mexi-cali aioli.
You cannot go wrong at Five Guys and there are more than two dozen locations in Connecticut to get one of the handcrafted burgers and fries.
