After reading all the outstanding reviews for Dagwood's, we went there on October 20, 2012 only to find it closed, with a "for rent" sign in the window. What a shame that we never got to try what sounded like outstanding barbeque.

Our group (6) was in New London for a USCG ship's reunion and decided to try this place. Well, I didn't know they only had outdoor seating (some picnic tables) but we decided to pick up some food to try. Wow!! So glad we stopped! We got there a little after closing time (7 pm) but the Open sign was... More

The building was empty for about a year and I usually drive by fast and it took me two months to realize that Dagwood's BBQ has opened there. Dagwood's doesn't have a large menu selection - but that is OK!! What they have on the menu... More

Every thing I have tried at Dagwoods haws been out of this world. The ribs are so tender and with that true smokey taste and home made bbq sauce (pig perfume) they are truly something to savor. Chocolate chip cookies are orgasmic!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My friends and I just kept saying MMMMMMMM

If you're like BBQ then Dagwood's will be your new best friend. The food is as good as it gets. I have been very luck to see a great deal of this country and there is just no where around here that can compete with this. The place oozes old fashioned hospitality with a great retro vibe. It's got a... More
