Dive Bar, West Haven
So if you ever find yourself in West Haven...
OK let's try this again. So there's this place in West Haven, CT called Dive Bar. Judging by the name, you would think it's probably some shit hole right across from the beach where alcoholics gather to eat pub food. AND guess what you're not wrong at all. Not even slightly.
Nah, but all jokes aside, this place kicks ass. I say this with complete honesty, Dive Bar has some of the best burgers in CT. "The Hangover" burger: 9oz burger covered by fried egg, home fries, bacon, sausage and american cheese is my main go-to, although there are a few other major players ("Mother Loaded": stuffed with cheddar, topped with bacon, fried shallots, roasted garlic). Last time I was there I got these buffalo chicken topped french fries. I mean. What is there to say. Think about what I just said. Hot hot fire. Just do it.
