Less than half mile over the Port Chester border, there are a whole lot of burgers being flipped – just the way they should be.
In fact, Burgers, Shakes & Fries in Byram – a Connecticut neighborhood once known as East Port Chester – has so remarkably refined the American classic that the eatery is cranking out up to 300 burgers a day. “That’s what we do,” says owner Kory Wollins.
Carnivorous or not, you can’t help but love the simplicity of this place, which captures everything burgers, shakes and fries (and onion rings too…) are about. The shop doesn’t have a whole lot more then a grill, the fixings, stuff to make fabulous shakes and about dozen stools lining a bar to eat on.
Four years old, Burgers, Shakes & Fries is reaping the rewards of being oh so good. Wollins has opened a second shop in Darien. As he says, “Everyone likes a burger.”
