Restaurants in Bethel, CT

Bethel, once the home of showman P.T. Barnum, is small town with a sassy culinary personality. The Sycamore Drive-In boasts old-fashioned car hop service, house-made root beer, Dagwood burgers, and summertime cruise nights attended by everybody with a cool car to show off. Just a few yards away is Dr. Mike’s, home to ultra-rich, super-premium ice cream made in 5-gallon batches since the 1970s. Just east of town is Bethel Hot Dog Palace, where foot-long chili dogs verge on ferocious and variations include slaw dogs, Reuben dogs, Chicago dogs, Texas dogs, and double-deluxe dogs in a long roll with cheddar cheese, bacon, chili, and French fries.
