Glenwood Drive-In is somewhat typical of the hot dog joints in the state, but some things do stand out. First the dogs are Really Good! They look to be about an 8:1 foot long, with a natural casing cooked on a flat top grill. These dogs are Hummel Brothers all beef dogs.Very tasty indeed! The chili sauce was unique for CT as well. It had beans in it! The flavor was good although I am not a bean guy. But there was an amazing condiment bar that featured a red, spicy hot relish that was excellent. They have a pretty extensive menu as well that features things like lobster rolls and clams. Worth a stop? Yes sir! Man you gotta get some here!

ridiculous prices for substandard food ...what used to be a landmark is poorly run ...dirty...has a staff that is putting in its time no personality ...stay away from the restroom if you want to keep your pedestrian food down...will never return
