The donuts at this place are the best around! The place is always busy, but the staff is all business and keeps the line moving. The assortment is mind blowing and almost overwhelming. Everything is fresh and delicious. Plan for a wait on weekends or around a holiday.

These have to be the best donuts I have ever had. Line is out the door, but with a huge number of staff behind the counter the line flies. Unlike other shops, there are all different kinds from filled, to glazed to frosted, sugared and plain. The jelly and sugar raised are my favorite. How about coconut, key lime, apple,... More

I'm 70 years old. I've been eating donuts/pastries and other delights for years. This place is fantastic! Walk in the door, be brave, and order only two items. Because, as many as you buy, you will eat on the way home (or wherever you're going)! Just make sure to get a coffee roll.

Donuts are probably my favorite breakfast food. I was in CT on business from SC when I stumbled upon the best donut shop in the world. The donuts were very fresh and all hand made. The only complaint I have is that I don't have a Neil's New York Style Donut shop here in SC! I wish they delivered!

I've never been inside. My coworker gets these periodically to share in the lunch room. They are tremendous. Nothing at all like crappy Dunkin. These are fresh baked with delicious flavors. These are not similar to eating sugar air. I look forward to these!!!

Neil's donuts are amazing! Although we live close by, we only visit Neil's when we have out of town guests. If you buy a dozen, you WILL eat them all.

Met the owner at the supermarket & heard about the bakery. Stopped in for the best selling glazed doughnuts & walked out with a bag full of delicious bakery items. They not only sell doughnuts, but they also sell danish, cookies, hot cross buns, pies, cakes, breads & coffees. We tried all but the pies, breads & coffees at this... More

Neil's Donuts is a one-of-a-kind donut shop. Neil wanted to make donuts and the love and passion comes through in each one. My favorite is the over stuffed jelly donut and they are all off the chart good. This is a Wallingford, Connecticut treasure - and I have never had anyone who I sent there come back disappointed. This is... More

The doughnuts at Neil's are like crack. You can't stop eating them. As a connoisseur of cinnamon apple cider doughnuts, I must say that Neil's are at the top of the list. I haven't eaten anything at Neil's that I would rate below a 9.5.
