Value, taste and friendly service. What else is there? The place is well used but extremely clean and the customers are as friendly as the staff.

I always buy the steam cheeseburger. I would recommend this over Ted's. The burger is bigger and on a nicer bun. The place is also cleaner. This is a recommended place to try in Meriden.

went for lunch on a Saturday. Had the steak and cheese sandwich which was very good on a fresh roll. My little girl had the chicken nuggets and they were very very good. Serve yourself drink cooler. Small eating area, about three tables and a few bars stools at the counter in front of where they cook. They also had... More

The quality of the cheese is all important when it comes to a steamed cheeseburg and the cheese is perfect at K LaMay's. The fresh rolls, the quality toppings but also the ease of parking make it the best cheeseburg place in the area. So glad they have a store in Cobalt where I have visited often.

Rolls and cheese used are better than Ted's. Ted's changed something, the rolls for sure and it's not as good as it used to be. K. LaMay's is king of the steamed cheeseburger in town.

Having moved to Central Connecticut from Virginia, I'd never even contemplated steaming a cheeseburger. Apparently, the concept arose right here in my new hometown of Meriden. While Ted's is the original that has appeared on several national television shows, having dined at both, I'd give the edge to K LaMays. The owner started out working for Ted's before branching out... More

Cam here on a quest for a burger and ate at this small local restaurant in Meridan. I ordered the burger and a side of fries and a soda. Service was quick and the burger was decent for what it was.

I was looking for steamed burgers and all the locals said to go here. I can't wait to take the family here.
