“Worst burgers and fries!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

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 and the burger itself was paper thin! The fries were dried out and skimpy. Bye bye Duchess!! Never again!!

“Solid ....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

A well oiled solid food chain on Bridgeport Avenue in Shelton. Clean and descent service. The same staff has been there for years!!! The food is solid as fast food can get. Great burgers, yummy fries, tasty shakes amongst others. They have descent dinners too that are made fresh. No complaints here. Great place to go in morning have an egg and cheese with coffee and read the paper. Good job Duches!!!

“A CT fast food place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Actually they advertise as fresh food done fast and they are right. While they do offer variety of dinner meals now, I come for the Big D Hamburger and fries. This is a real burger served on a bun that does not fall apart in your hands. And not a bad place to stop for breakfast as they will if asked serve your eggs sunny side up.

“The best in fast food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

If you dont want to drop a bundle at a restaurant and dont mind a fast food environment, go here... Original menu and great food from a popular local chain.
