Restaurants in Woodbury, CT

Some of the best donuts in Connecticut are served in Woodbury at Dottie’s Diner. They’re cake donuts: plain, cinnamon-dusted, and frosted, each a Platonic ideal of its type. Dottie’s makes a specialty of old-time farmhouse chicken pies, as once were sold off the back porches of the state’s chicken farmers. Woodbury also is home to a beguiling joint called, suitably enough, El Camion (“the truck”). Here you find artisan tacos and quesadilas as well as chicken, pork, steak, and sweet potato burritos. Once only a food truck that parked along the road, El Camion has added indoor and porch dining facilities.
