Great burger

It's definitely a whole in the wall looking place but nothing else matches that. The guys taking the order were friendly, helpful, and quick with their suggestions. The burger is fantastic, my only suggestion is to use a smaller roll to put it on. The patty is completely hidden inside the massive... read more

It's definitely a whole in the wall looking place but nothing else matches that. The guys taking the order were friendly, helpful, and quick with their suggestions. The burger is fantastic, my only suggestion is to use a smaller roll to put it on. The patty is completely hidden inside the massive bun that's used. Worth stopping in.

I myself can't do cheese, but I have the steamed Hamburgers and my wife has the cheese burgers and says they can't be beat.

Kevin does it right - fresh rolls, nice Wisconsin Cheddar and the best burger in town. He is also not afraid of french fries and onion rings and I love that he carries Foxon Park sodas! Thanks Kevin!

There are not too many restaurants you could visit and be assured that you were going to have a good steam cheeseburger. K LaMay offers quality and quantity a much bigger burger than what Ted has to offer. I have my own steam cheeseburger machine and they come as close to my homemade ones as is any place in the...

K LaMay's Steamed Cheeseburgers are like dying and going to heaven. My husband is a weekly customer to this "knock your socks off" ...when he walks in the door the smell is just heavenly, ergo, the Title!

I've been to both Ted's and K LaMay's for the steamed cheeseburgers and I liked them both. Although I'm not a native Connecticut Yankee, I lived there for 12 years. If you've never had a steamed cheeseburger, you should try one. They are never dry or over cooked and they lather on a lot of cheese. K LaMay's gets my... More

The burger was really yummy. The cheese was so good on the cheeseburger. If you need to use a restroom your out of luck. Which wasn't the best thing after driving 40 minutes to get there. The place was nothing fancy...

I wanted to give a better rating but I just didn't find the steamed cheeseburger all that tasty. I was impressed with the staff. They greeted everybody with genuine friendliness. It was a weekday mid afternoon and there was a steady influx of patrons and a large delivery order was phoned in. So obviously a lot of people like this... More

Why does the cheese make all the difference in steamed burgers? Simple: steamed burgers have no flavor. If you've never had a steamed burger and are intrigued to give it a try, don't. There's none of that charred goodness that makes a burger worth the tasty indulgence. That said, the staff was friendly, accommodating, and the service was fast. Ambience... More

I recently ordered out at K Lamays restaurant in Meriden. I have to say it was delicious. Cooked to order and tasty. Not to mention a great price too. We will go back again.
