I lived in L.A. for thirty years and sampled many a burger. Upon moving to Connecticut, many told me the best burger ever was at Joe Pizza in Canton CT.
This required a taste test, and you know what, they’re right. Joe Pizza fresh-grinds their meat on the premises and offers a monster half pounder with any number of free toppings like grilled onions, peppers, buffalo sauce, etc. It’s beyond delicious, practically melts in your mouth, and the price is just $5.45.
Sorry Johnny Rockets, take a hike Tommy’s, you’ve been bested by a mom and pop place in the semi-country in Connecticut.
