“try the grape nuts pudding”

"If you are traveling along I-95 west of New London and hanker for stick-to-the-ribs food at wallet-friendly prices, get off the road at Exit 74. Just a few yards from the exit ramp is The Shack, a diner that adjoins a golf driving range.  Accommodations are old-shoe cozy: wood paneled walls, low ceiling, bare formica tables and a short counter with a view of the semi-open kitchen. One large blackboard lists the day's desserts -- an assortment of a dozen pies and puddings -- and a smaller one lists the lunch specials. The day we stopped in, the former included apple crumb, Graham cracker, Boston cream, pumpkin, and coconut cream pies plus rice, Grape-Nuts, and bread pudding; on the latter were all-you-can-eat pasta, macaroni & cheese, and shepherd's pie. The regular printed menu includes liver and onions, meat loaf, and kielbasa.  We ordered that shepherd's pie, and wow!, it sure was a big hunk of food. The size of a brick, it was layers of chunky ground beef with potatoes and vegetables under a mantle of gravy. We had arrived with good appetites; midway through this meal, they were long gone!  We also enjoyed the workmanlike clam chowder -- creamy soup with bits of tender clam -- and beef chili, which is dense and meaty, albeit served no-frills. (What, no cheese to sprinkle on top? No raw onions?)  Good as lunch may be, the big meal of the day at The Shack is breakfast. Omelets are big and lovely; the hash browns that accompany eggs are four-star; and the coffee never stops coming." --http://roadfood.com/Restaurant/Review/650-650/the-shack
