A Burger is Born

George heads to Connecticut, where a rich industrial history has spawned 4 of the country’s most original burgers. From a restaurant that claims to have served the first hamburger in America, to a ‘50s throwback diner that literally crowns their burgers with cheese, George gets his fill of classic all-American cheeseburgers that have withstood the test of time.
