Visit Harry’s Place, The Small Town Burger Joint In Connecticut That’s Been Around Since 1920
Not all burgers are created equal. So if you’re looking for a great one, why not head to a burger joint that’s been around for almost a century? Not only does this spot have a local following that spans generations, but this roadside stand in Connecticut is such a standout that it landed a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. So when your burger cravings arise, head to Harry’s Place for an old-fashioned meal you won’t forget.
Harry's Place has been serving tasty burgers since 1920. The seasonal white-washed stand is an icon in Colchester and far beyond. Long-time customers await its opening in April each year and mourn its closing in October when the season ends.
The burgers are served up thick and juicy straight off the flat-topped grill. Long lines are common during the summer, but one bite and you'll realize it was worth the wait.
Choose from over 15 different toppings. Try traditional options like lettuce, chopped onion, and bacon or go for more snazzy choices like chili sauce, hot peppers, or a fried egg.
The burgers are four-ounce juicy patties straight from Noel's Market but if you're
really hungry opt for the eight-ounce stacker. Harry's Place also serves a vegetarian version to boot.
Not limited to
just delicious burgers, this popular eatery also serves tasty hot dogs, killer onion rings, and plenty of fried seafood options.
The atmosphere at Harry's is casual with plenty of outdoor picnic tables where you can enjoy your meal.
Enjoy a yummy burger with a side of nostalgia at this classic burger joint that's been open for decades but don't wait until there's snow on the ground or you'll be too late!
