Chew Correspondent Jason Roberts visits New Haven, Connecticut to check out the home of the Hamburger at Louis’ Lunch. As the story goes, a man walked into Louis’ Lunch in the 1900s requesting something that he could eat on the go. So, what did Louis Lassen do? He topped two slices of toasted bread with ground steak trimmings and thus the infamous American staple was born.
To this day, Louis’ Lunch prepares fresh burgers with a blend of five meats, and refrains from offering a selection of condiments. Simply garnish your patty with cheese, tomato, and onion, and enjoy the freshness of these delectable sandwiches.
