K. LaMay's Steamed Cheeseburgers in Meriden

Kevin LaMay, formerly of the famous Ted's Steamed Cheeseburgers in Meriden, opened up his own joint (K. Lamay's) recently, and we (Jenna/Rob/Priya/I) hit it on our way back from Boston. It was outstanding! A few ways I think it surpasses the (ever-classic) Ted's:

1) Bigger burgers
2) Better cheddar cheese--I hear Ted's switched to a lower quality cheese recently, and it shows
3) Actual cheese fries, not cheese homefries
4) Foxon Park sodas (I got birch beer)
5) Next door to Les' for some classic Meriden soft-serve afterward
