Burger Land: Sneak Peek Pictures
George Motz travels the US to sample the country’s best burgers -- those that have stood the test of time, as well as some of the newcomers.
Shady Glen in Manchester, CTGeorge’s second stop is Shady Glen in Manchester, CT – a tribute to the '50s-style diner. Shady Glen was originally an ice cream stop, but the restaurant’s first owner, Bernice Rieg, brought in a grill for the winter months and started serving burgers. 960 1280
Shady Glen's burgerThe ground sirloin burger at Shady Glen is cooked on a flattop grill with 4 slices of cheddar cheese placed symmetrically on the burger. When the cheese starts to cook through, the line cook bends the cheese upwards, forming a crown of delicious crispy cheese that sits atop the burger. 960 1280
