“Out ot the Past”

Clamp's Hamburger Stand
Ranked #21 of 91 Restaurants in New Milford
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Clamp’s is a place out of the past. At one time hamburger stands like this were common but were gradually replaced by the McDonald’s, Burger King’s, etc. Clamps has been around since 1939 (and I have been going there since about 1950) and it is pretty much unchanged. New Milford used to have several places like this. Besides Clamps there was Fabs on Route 7 just south of the bridge near the center of town and a place whose name I can’t recall a bit further down Route 7 on the right. In the north end of town on Route 7 in the Gaylordsville section was the Red Rose Arbor (where my parents first met).

It is worth going just to experience something that you rarely see anymore. The food has always been good and inexpensive.

Watch your time if you go since they are only open from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM and then from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM, and they close for the season after Labor Day.

There is a reason this place is not better known.. They have strange hours, and are only opened during the summer and with no sign most people just drive by. BUT for those of us who know about Clamps always make it point to stop.

First of all it is a plain white shack, most people just zip by too fast, only to see cars parked off the road. STOP AND TURN AROUND !!

The food quality great, they make it exactly to your special requests. Everything is freshly made to order. In all of my years going here, never have a complaint.

Actually I am glad most people drive by, otherwise the line in front would be too long...
