Great, Cheap Road Food : Botsford Drive In
My search for every single establishment in Connecticut selling whole-belly clam rolls led me to Newtown recently.
I've driven by this establishment many times over the years, but stupidly, have never visited. That all changed recently, my co-worker Sara works there, and she needed a ride in. I used this opportunity to make myself fatter with a Sunday brunch of Botsford Drive-In's finest.
I purchased the aforementioned whole belly clam roll, which was excellent at 9AM. The clams were fried perfectly, and a good amount of them on the roll. I slathered some tartar sauce on top and went to town. Delicious. I washed down the Clams with a couple of Botsford's signature hot dogs, I tried a chili, and a classic. Both were very good.
Botsford doesn't gouge you, which is surprising being that it's located in Fairfield County. Great food at a fair price, hmmmm, great concept!
Botsford Drive-In is located at 282 South Main Street (RT.25) in Newtown. I highly recommend stopping by and checking out their great food, and tip Sara a few extra bucks while you're there!
