A Bernice Original – The trade secret here is that crispy cheese; just HOW do they do it? Nowhere in the world have I found a cheeseburger like the Bernice Original. Walking the boardwalk in Delray Fla. several years ago ran into folks from Manchester who wished Shady Glen would open a southern branch; I agree! Can't beat the cheeseburg and a chocolate shake. I made my debut at Shady Glen at age 2 months way back in 1954; been going there ever since expept for the time I lived in Palm Beach Fla.

Best Cheeseburgers in America – Shady Glen drapes there burgers with cheese and fry's the overlapping cheese on the grill, making a golden crown of tasty krisp cheese. Best in the country.

Senior Moment – How anyone can say that Shady Glen serves the best hamburgers in Hartford is beyond me. It's probably because they don't get out very much. The first and only time I went to Shady Glen I thought I was at a rest stop for seniors on a fall foilage bus tour. Give me a break!

YUM YUM YUM – This is my childhood favorite. Don't knock it. Admit that the cheese is the best-tasting thing you've ever had! This place is classic, straight from the '50's, and unless you hate diners, ice cream, cheeseburgers, flowers and kittens, you will love it here. Everything is PERFECT!

Its the cheese!!!!!! – Let's face it.......The burger by itself is O.K.

What makes it a great burger is the thing they do with the cheese. I still don't know how they do that.

The atmosphere is the greatest. It's fifties retro but not intended to be. That's just the way things are at Shady Glen. Spotless stainless steel and formica, Groomed cooks in uniform and hat, pretty waitresses at your table in seconds with a smile.

It reminds me of the old Texaco commercials on The Milton Berle Show.

AND....The cole slaw is the best in the world...no kidding.

Haute Cuisine for Everyday Folks – The All American meal: The Bernice (sp?) Burger, fries, Vanilla milk shake. For cheese lovers, the fried cheese on the Bernice Burger is incredible. And the vanilla milk shakes are made with real vanilla syrup and they're world-famous, igh butter-fat content, homemade ice cream. The ambience of a 1950's soda shop, a la "Back to the Future." Don't forget a real ice cream sundae for dessert. A Manchester institution since before I moved there in 1956! Worth a trip from anywhere.

Oh, the CHEESE!!! – That funky thing they do with the cheese on their burgers and hot dogs...or you can just get the cheese! Milkshakes are awesome.

not on your wife – Rude, crude, but not lewd...are the waitresses at the Manchester Shady Glen. The food was decent, but not great, but the service was soooo bad that I would not return when a free meal was offered.
