Doughboys from Iggy's in Rhode Island

Akin to doughnuts or zeppoles, doughboys are the local sugar-dusted, deep-fried dough treat of choice in Rhode Island—the kind of thing that proximity to a coast or a carnival seems to require in America. It’s typically pizza dough that’s flattened, fried, sugared, and served hot, making it vaguely Italian-derived. Try to have just one.

Where: It’s part of the name, so it’s gotta be good. Plus, Iggy’s Doughboys & Chowderhouse (two locations including 889 Oakland Beach Ave., Warwick, map) has the essential bonuses of a super casual clam-shack atmosphere and a location just a stone’s throw from the shore.

When: Sun-Thurs, 11am-8pm; Fri-Sat, 11am-9pm

Order: Iggy’s offers a few types of doughboys, but the classic kind is topped with sugar ($5.49/$9.99 for six/12)—choose from granulated or powdered. You can also try these hot pillows of dough plain or with a sugar-cinnamon mix. They’re delicious and feel even more legit served in a grease-stained paper bag from here.  

Alternatively: We are still looking for more doughboys in Rhode Island. Let us know if you’ve found some!
