When we first moved to Ct. We lived on Homestead St. Shady Glen was near us in the Parkade. We loved it. We love the cheeseburger. Ice cream and the cole slaw is to die for. We live a half a mile from the one near Bolton. It still calls me to come in, but I have no willpower when it comes to eating there.

I ate there 20 years ago and was unimpressed. I ate there again a few days ago and the bill for myself and 8 year old daughter totaled $31.50. What a RIP!!! Basically we had burgers and fries. Nice retro atmosphere but the burger meat tasted like it was very low grade--as if some cat food found its way in there. The fries were standard crinkle cut. Ice cream was good, but if you ask for 1 scoop, you get a teaspoon's worth. They don't take debit cards so on top of my expensive tab was an ATM fee which p'd me off to no end. The place is just not worth it. If you want a GOOD burger go someplace else, get a better meal and save 20 dollars. Doesn't even come close to Burger King.

Great throwback atmosphere and good service. The ice cream is excellent. Warning: cash only.

Friendly, Fun oldschool environment. Awesome ice cream, better fried cheese cheeseburgers.
