The thing about visiting Duchess is that you have so many choices to choose from. They have salads, burgers, sandwiches, wraps, hot dogs, & more. They have plenty of breakfast options as well. At this location, I ordered a pulled pork sandwich ($4.69). It was very good with a decent amount of pork on a fresh soft roll. It hit... More

This place has one of the best fish sandwiches in the area and also has about 20 different kinds of sandwiches and some lunches and dinners. They have soup and great all day breakfast sandwiches on a hard roll. They usually have a special for around $6 including a sandwich (last one I had was Chicken Parm - yum), fries... More

The server had long grubby shirt sleeves which hung below his second knuckle, landed in our empty coffee cups along with his thumb, as he handed the cups to us. I complained to the manager who immediately took him aside but this kid is back at the counter serving food again, long grubby sleeves and all. Everyone else seemed clean.

When I need a chili dog fix, this is the place. As far as i know Duchess is only here in CT. Great fast food and quick service. They even bring food to your table

Duchess has consistently provided the best selection and the best quality fast foods. From hamburgers and hot dogs to chicken or veal Parmegiano, they have the best sandwiches for a restaurant of this type. The service is polite and quick and the seating is comfortable.

My wife is from this area and over the years we have enjoyed good solid food and good service at all the area Duchesses. The one in Shelton was contrary to most of our other experiences. The food was good but we went there on three separate occasions and the um...gentleman who delivered our food was devoid of personality, speech... More

When you must do fast food, the choice in this area is Duchess. Inside dining is better than most fast food joints. Order and take a seat. They will deliver to your table. Very good selection of soup, salads and all manner of sandwiches and meals. Get to play with the latest Coke machine! More choices than you can imagine.... More

Clean, friendly staff, very good service with a large selection of food at reasonable prices. We dined here twice during our visit. I really liked the 100 variety soda vending machine.

My husband went to Duchess today to bring home lunch for our grandsons and himself...when he walked in with the bag I could tell it wasn't going to be good. The bag had lots of grease stains on it! He asked for burgers plain but only add ketchup...well the burgers had chopped onion on them....and the buns were very soggy... More
