I got hungry while we were driving to Southbury, it was a perfect day to drive into Denmo's. Whole belly clams, a hot dog, burgers and fries, plus an ice cold Coke? Oh yeah. Drive in restaurants are so comforting, and established brick and mortar restaurants are looking to the drive in's as to how to survive as we move on slowly from the pandemic. I started thinking about some of the great drive in restaurants there are in Western Connecticut, so I made this list for you, check it out on one of these beautiful Summer days when you need to get out and grab a bite.

 

And while you're looking for a nice place to eat outdoors, there are a few places with nice patios around the Greater Waterbury area.
