Everyone who comes to Shady Glen recommends one dish: the "Bernice Original " cheeseburger. Most hamburger joints give you a burger with one, maybe two slices. Shady Glen offers up a delicious burger with four slices of cheese; cheese that overflows the griddle when cooking so that you are left with cheesy, gooey goodness on the burger and crispy, flavorful cheese all around the burger. Enjoy your burger with a side of crinkle-cut fries and a milkshake from the dairy's own unique flavors. All visitors to the Hartford area should try out the Shady Glen Dairy for some one-of-a-kind burgers and ice cream.
