“An old favorite”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

This place has been here for a long time. I like the burgers and fries, but be prepared to wait on a weekend because the place gets packed! The bison burger is extremely greasy, however, as a forewarning. I still go every once in a while.

“Old School”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

This is an old school hamburger stand. The Merritt does it their own way. Which IMHO is the way it should be done.

Food is freshly prepared by a team as you watch.

Great burgers, dogs, fries and rings, done the old fashion way. The Merritt has absolutely no-frills, and it is the better for it.

Not to be missed.

“best chili-dogs in CT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

This busy place on Main St has the best chili dogs and fries of any "hotdog stand" in the state. Go for the food, not the ambiance.
