Staying near BDL (Windsor Locks); be there the next two nights. Any good eats in the area?

Although I've driven through about 100 times, I've never stopped and eaten. Some of the best BBQ I've eaten is just north of you in Sturbridge:

My wife loves Rubens and she's dreamed of this Ruben on many occasions. :thumb:
The other food also is very good. It is not traditional BBQ, something a bit different.

Not a whole lot around that I would recommend in that area.

Maine Fish Market restuarant is not far and is consistently good if you want something different then the chain places. Average prices and no need to dress up.

Brother Gary's blog, Pigtrip, is an excellent resource for finding good BBQ up in the Northeast.

Here is his take on Connecticut.

Cool. Hope you enjoy it. It is nothing too special, but it has been good everytime I have been there. (I lived at the Candlewood by the airport for a couple of months when I first moved up here)

Food was great! Too much of it. HUGE portions! I had a seafood platter; must have had a dozen whole clams, dozen sea scallops, half dozen large butterflied shrimp, two pollock fillets, seafood salad, clam chowder, slaw, bread, and fries. They could reduce the amount of food by half and the price by 1/3 and I would still be stuffed and satisfied. Thanks for the suggestion.
