    What an absolute gem.  At first, I wished it weren't quite so far out, but now I consider the trip to be part of the experience.



    Of course, it didn't start out being as much about the setting as about the food - not back when homegrown roadside burger joints were a dime a dozen - but with the passage of several decades, it's absolutely become that.  



    Today, I'd say it's a miniature retreat into the past, a tucked-away haven where one can go and, as many, many folks before did, enjoy some well-prepared burgers and/or dogs while watching traffic on Route 202.  It's lovely to think that only the prices, the generations of the family staff, and the styling of the cars going by have changed.



    I can confirm that fried onions are a mandatory topping.





    For the hot dogs, I'd say try the homemade chili.  It looks like it would go well with the cheese sauce that they use on their fries.  Or forget all that and try barbecue sauce plus slaw.

     



    There was a pool of grease underneath these rings.  Not for the faint of heart (mentally or physically).







    Here's the view directly behind Clamp's.



    This is the kind of place that you wish had been your tradition growing up.  I'm from a thousand miles away, and only five years a Connecticut resident, but damned if I haven't already formed an attachment.

    The OP indicates Clamp's is only open through Memorial Day.  Did they mean Labor Day, or is their season that short?

    Yeah, they meant Labor Day.  Heck, Memorial Day is what kicks off the outdoor burger season!

    Looks like a worthwhile stop and, yes, it's great to know such places still exist. Just be sure to pack a few Rolaids for dessert. *Burp*  Considering the OP looks like it may have been SPAM, I'm glad it was a good experience.

    Going by their post history, OP's a legit member.  Just not too active.

    Reminds me of Dilly's Corner in New Hope PA.
