Cricket Car Hop returns to Stratford in new location

Posted: Updated:
STRATFORD -

A Stratford landmark for more than 50 years has returned with the same old recipes, but a new location.

The Cricket Car Hop – a hot dog and hamburger stand known for their long dogs, shakes, French fries and onion rings – was an icon in the town from the 1950s until 2004. 

It has now returned to its new location on Access Road.

Cricket Car Hop's owners say they also built a drive-thru which should be up and running in about two months.
