May is National Hamburger Month, a perfect time to visit the birthplace of the hamburger. Come along with me on a visit to Louis' Lunch in New Haven, Connecticut, and I'll tell you the story of how Louis Lassen made fast food history in 1900. If you decide to head to New Haven for a taste of history, be sure to read my advice, or you might do something silly... like ask for ketchup.

What a fun piece… the burgers look great. I’ll have to write this down for the next time I shoot through that area. Thanks, Kim!
