Cheap eats, good treats

It’s been far too long since I updated my blog. No excuses other than I’ve been living a very boring existence the last few weeks. But now that I’m preparing to move to South Carolina on May 15, I knew I had to hit up some of Rhode Island’s treasures.

Except… I DID go to Stanley’s Famous Burgers in the heart of Central Falls, Rhode Island.

A life-long Rhode Islander, I had never heard of Stanley’s until I asked for burger recommendations a couple years ago on Facebook. (As much as people complain about their friends posting food photos and updates, I love hearing about good restaurants! And it sure beats angry political posts, n’est-ce pas?)

First things first: They have a parking lot. Having to find a place to park in an unfamiliar area stresses me out, so this was a bonus.

I walked in to find a retro-’60s-style diner restaurant. Amazing. And fitting, because the prices are also pretty retro.

Check out these prices!

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about new restaurants, it’s this: ASK THE WAIT STAFF.

Brittany was amazingly helpful. All burgers are made with grilled onions and pickles, unless otherwise requested. I’m no pickle fan, but I still got my burger the Stanley Way, and it was a good choice. The flavors all work well together.

This is my first taste of the very tasty Stanley burger.

If you’re heading into or out of Rhode Island, check out Stanley’s. I hear it gets pretty crowded, so be prepared to wait.

And don’t forget to get your coffee shake for dessert!
