Donuts were very good!

We made a special stop here on a vacation after reading the reviews here on Trip Advisor. The donuts were very good. not the best I've had, but they were really good. When we pulled up the line was out the door but it moved quickly. Neil's is better than most donut shops. If you're ever in... read more

Stopped by to get a FRESH New York style donut. When I got there the line was out the door. Good sign I thought, well after eating a fresh Sugar donut I wound up getting a dozen. I could see why they were so busy, simply delicious... While I was there I also grabbed a freshly cooked Bacon, Egg and... More

The BEST donuts, Hands-Down, in the Tri-State area!!!!! Over 20+ varieties. One is better than the rest. Neil is there every day to oversee the growing small business.

Neil's is a family owned business and is by far the best donut shop around. They are always busy and there is a reason for that. The donuts are always fresh and delicious. My personal favorite is Key Lime, however I don't think there is a bad one in the bunch.

This place is a diabetic nightmare. I live about 10 miles away and that is a good thing because you cannot eat 1 you must have a Boston cream first and than a jelly followed by a chocolate donut they are that good but of course not good for you .This is a place that does not fill there donuts...

They make the best bacon egg and cheese on a hard roll I have ever had, fresh cracked egg. Oh yeah, the donuts and pastries are great too.

Neil's Donuts is a legend in Wallingford, CT and it's difficult to describe just how wonderful their donuts are. When someone announces to a group that they have Neil's Donuts to share you will see smiles blossom throughout the room...these donuts are really that delicious; they are happiness personified. The line is often out the door, but service is quick... More

My wife and I happened to be in the immediate area of Neil's, okay, admittedly it involved a detour, so we stopped at Neil's for a pair of Bavarian cream donuts. Neil's version is large, melt in your mouth soft and sliced into halves in order to load the interior with Bavarian cream. We also spotted a couple trays of... More

Once you navigate the busy parking lot you are in donut heaven. The long, black raspberry filled crullers are tops. Just save some for me! Everything I have had here is great, from muffins to coffee cakes to flavored coffee. Although there's a line usually, efficient staff keeps it moving fast.
