Ted's Steamed Cheeseburgers

In Connecticut, Steamed Cheeseburger is King

In central Connecticut, the steamed cheeseburger is king, much to the credit of Ted’s Steamed Cheeseburgers. From its 650-square-foot, 18-seat shop in Meriden, Connecticut, the 53-year-old eatery serves its signature steamed meat-and-cheese combo on a fresh-baked bun.

In addition to becoming a heralded local favorite, Ted’s has emerged a popular travel destination following appearances in the documentary film “Hamburger America” and a pair of Travel Channel shows: “Food Paradise” and “Man v. Food.”
