If a visitor asked me to take them to an iconic Connecticut roadside stand, I would choose Heibeck’s in Wilton. This wonderful seasonal place (opened in 1931) has been serving some of the best ice cream, burgers and hot dogs for generations.
Heibeck’s is such a townie institution that if you opened an encyclopedia to Georgetown, you would find pictures of the Heibeck family, who still own and run the stand. They also run the Sunoco gas station next door. The Heibecks are beloved fixtures of the community. Brothers Mike, Tom, Marty and George Heibeck are the backbone of the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 that incorporated around the same time the ice cream stand opened.
