Plan B Burger Bar/Milford? - Ct.

  • 8

I've heard rumblings that Plan B is opening a spot in Milford. I can't find anything definitive though. Anyone been to their other locations? I think there are 3. If so, how was it?

Not sure where or when this is supposed to happen. Can't imagine the location since I am guessing they are looking for a rather large space.

Maybe they'll take over the soon to be abandoned Border's space in the mall?

I hope not. I'd love to see this downtown.

  1. I've been to the glastonbury location, nice bar area, burgers are just okay, fries, bleah...lotsa other menu options I haven't tried to be fair. Can't stand the ridiculous wait for a table. Found a better burger up the street at the diamond pub and grill, never the 45+minute wait for a table as planb frequently has. They'll have some big burger shoes to fill in the milford area, as I have tasty memories of paul's and the greeks

    1. I was at the one in West Hartford. The burgers are good. The beer and bourbon selection is even better.

      1. Much as I want to like Plan B, and want to support businesses in Glastonbury so I'm glad hear they seem to be doing well. But, I have to say the burger is so-so at best. I just don't like the loose pack of 'natural' beef. It is not particularly flavorful. I suspect the fat content is just too low. Plus, and this isn't really a negative, the burgers are ample -- I just can't eat the whole thing anymore. I wish they would offer a 5 or 6 oz alternate. I like their fries and house salad. The best burger in the area: Apricots in Farmington.

        1. The new Plan B in Milford will be in the Whole Foods plaza (no idea quite where in the plaza).
          They will be opening in June.
          This came straight from PlanB management.

            Thanks Gator man and all the rest of you. I think I'll give it a whirl but I can't really think where it will be either.

            Whatever, we'll see soon enough.

          2. I live close to the first one in West Hartford and I really like it. That location is rather tiny and you're often waiting for a table. I'm one of those people who turns into a Grumpus when I'm hungry thus I don't normally have much patience for waiting for a table (and in that location there's really no where to wait) Things I've liked there include the lobster roll sliders, the burger sliders, the fact that they have tater tots and their fondue. I'm not a huge beef burger eater but I appreciate that their menu isn't just burgers. The beer list is rather large too.

              The main reason I go to plan B is for the beer list! One of the best in the area and constantly changing. There is always a great selection. I wish some other local establishments would follow suit. I might enjoy Max restaurants more often if they would up their game in the beer department. Their beer offerings are completely inadequate. one great beer with a decent burger is nirvana.

                Diamond has always had a good meal...surprised at the amount of convenience foods Plan B uses...to sell "Tater Tots" ...at a price one would pay for a hand made product os a little surprising...I like the creative decor but the hanging meat lamps are a an example of too much of a good thing...and the back room walled in flocked silver is a very harsh atmosphere...the dumbing down of the American Eater continues.
