“Good old fashion fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We head to Bethel, CT every summer and going to the Sycamore is always one of the first stops. It has an old fashion feel, with great shakes, burgers and atmosphere.... the car show on Saturday nights is a great time but breakfast, lunch or dinner - Sycamore is a fun meal. You have to try the dagwood burger!

“Very fun to step back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We had the burgers. Fresh ground, very thin, served in waxed paper , like they used to be. The french fries are excellent also. A trip back to my youth. It's old inside, but very clean. Staff was friendly and efficent. Shakes are supposed to be awesome. Next time.

“Drive in diner appeal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Dagwood burger is great. Good breakfast too. If you are looking for greasy fast food type grub, this beats any fast food joint out there.
One note, nothing healthy on this menu, but it tastes really good and the atmosphere is great

“Fun place, best retro burgers ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

What's not to like about the Sycamore? It's a one-of-a kind place, with a really cool retro decor and old-fashioned diner food. You will never have burgers like this anwhere else. On Saturdays in the summer, they also have old car night, which is fun, with 50s music and a DJ.

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Enjoy this spot for breakfast after church. The portions are large and the food i always hot. Great casual spot for a burger for lunch or dinner too.
