As we were traveling thru the Norwich area looking for lunch, we came upon Buddy's. A very pleasant surprise with a pretty wide menu from hot dogs and burgers to seafood. Everyone was pleased with their meal, and the outdoor seating on a fine fall day was a treat. It isn't the Ritz but it is still a good stop... More

For the time and the price of my order I was not impressed with the quality. Also there was garbage flying around where we were eating. Maybe next year?

Down the road from us. It is a bit of an upgrade from your normal New England run of the mill fried food and hot dog shack. Outdoor seating, sort of an odd location in the Ace Hardware parking lot behind the gas stations. If you are driving by and need something fried and relatively quick. It is worth the... More

My husband, daughter, and I went to this restaurant and absolutely loved it. It is covered, outdoor dining so will probably be closing for the colder weather. My daughter and I had the burgers with an order of large fries to share. They were cooked to perfection and the fries were crispy and so tasty! My husband had the fried... More

I've been to Buddy's Dugout a couple of times now, I always have the Kracken,it's a hot dog wrapped in bacon!!!!!! How can u go wrong??? Today though I went with seafood, the fisherman's platter, whoever came up with the idea for this dish and who cooked it are geniuses. The fisherman's platter gives a little bit of everything, shrimp,... More

I made my 1st visit to Buddy's Dugout on Saturday July 27th, after numerous attempts in the past two years. It turns out it was a good news, bad news search for what I thought was a roadside hot dog joint, which it may have been at one time. Being unfamiliar with the area, they are located just off a...
