Reviewed By liamisneill - Meriden, Connecticut

I've stopped here for several breakfasts and lunches. Every time, I have someone say Hi and proceed to hand me a menu and not rush when I'm reading the Specials board.

Neil's New York Style Donut

Reviewed By champangedreamz

Hopping side of the road donut shop in little Wallingford makes racks of donuts to entice. However after sampling old fashioned cinnamon sugar and glazed raised donut, I would advise going straight to the jelly. A thin crispy layer drenched in powdered sugar surrounds a fluffy tasty raised donut and delicious strawberry jelly. Absolutely Divine!! Not to be missed!

Les' Dairy Bar

Reviewed By Dave C - Meriden, Connecticut

we go there a few times throughout the year. good thing is they open early spring and stay open into October. Prices are ok, wide variety of treats. Parking can be a little bit cramped when busy. sometimes better to park at plaza next door and walk to Les's,

One of the two best places on rt.5 to stop and have breakfast or lunch. Between Ricks and Dads you can't go wrong. You try them once and you'll go back again and again.

K LaMay's Steamed Cheeseburgers

Reviewed By MeridenTravelers - Meriden, CT

This is a Meriden delicacy which is only available in a limited number of restaurants in the Meriden area. The original restaurant is Ted's and K LaMay learned his trade there.
Steamed cheeseburgers are very different from regular burgers and you need to understand that going in. Being steamed, the meat is an unattractive grey color so don't look under the bun. That being said, the taste is terrific and it is all in the cheese.
K LaMay uses an excellent cheddar with a clear and sharp bite to it. It is certainly something to experience. Additions to the burger are your choice, but I like only a bit of mustard so as not to take away from the cheese taste.
The restaurant itself is rather run down and offers no bathroom facilities for customers. One warning: do not take a steamed cheeseburger out. The cheese will get very gritty as it cools so it must be eaten promptly after it is prepared.

Viron Rondo Osteria

Reviewed By Lynn H - CT

We made sat night reservations on Friday for 6:30 for party of 4. It was 7:15pm and we had to keep asking when our table would be ready. Finally we got seated but in the bar where it was so loud and people all around us. Would think that these tables would be kept for walk ins. We were expecting a much more enjoyable evening. Food was good ( Tuscana salad was excellent) but when you can’t even have a conversation - why bother.

Castello Pizza & Italian Market

Reviewed By Lily197369 - Boston, Massachusetts

The restaurant was small, but it was neat and clean. The place also felt very homey. We ordered the Potato Pie, which had signature thin crust that we had never tried but found it delicious! The staff there was also very friendly and helpful. If we ever travel there again, we will definitely go eat there!
