Delicious cheeseburgers - better than Ted's! Great onion rings, and they have Foxon Park soda. Fast service, a bit expensive, but they usually have Living Social or Groupon deals.

The steamed cheeseburgers at K LaMays are really good. The cheese is so tangy delicious. The atmosphere isn't anything special but the food is worth the visit.

Atmosphere is home town and quality of food is great. Their menu is not big. But their selling point is steamed hamburgers....anyway way you want but definitely Meriden! Their onion rings are awesome!

I am surprised this is the number 1 place to eat in Meriden. Ok, so maybe it's a local thing but steamed cheeseburgers aren't that good or at least this one wasn't. The onion rings were good, although a little scorched, and the burger toppings were completely wrong from what I ordered. There was only one other person ordering so... More

Far better than Teds, they keep the place clean and the fries are great. My daughters love this place! Absolutely great, and they also butterfly the burger so it covers the bun. Give it a shot, great burger and great experience.

The Steamed Cheeseburger is a Meriden institution, and K. LaMay's is the keeper of the flame. This place does it right every time. When I come back to my old home town, this is a must stop for me. ENJOY.

After having eaten at Teds for many years I tried K LaMay's burger and now have a new favorite steamed cheeseburger. The burgers at K LaMay's are a little larger than many other steamed cheeseburgers and the I also found that the cheese was more flavorful.

Meriden is the center of the cheeseburger universe and this place is a standout. The owner learned his craft at his current competitor, Teds. He's learned a lot because he's giving his guru a run for his money. K Lamay won Connecticut magazines best burger award recently and it's well deserved. Make sure you use McDonalds restroom down the street... More
