After dining on hamburgers and hot dogs at Duchess restaurants (for literally decades), we recently opted to try their dinners - fish and chips; and clam strips. Both were served with cole slaw and the choice of soup or salad. The side salad was fresh and crisp with iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumber. It was a good size and a... More

Come during a time when there is a lot going on. The sights were very beautiful. The shopping areas were very nice.

Duchess is very nice inside with alot of seating and tv's not only on wall but most places you sit. The food is freshly made and very good tasting. A good variety with good specials. They have meals that include soup or salad and bread after 4 pm. Reasonable prices as well.

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.

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
