When in Rhode Island, I guarantee you’re looking for some delicious food.

I mean, how could you not?

Rhode Island is known all around the country for how amazing their food is; they have some of the best restaurants around.

I find that time and time again, I am impressed with all of the food that I eat in the local restaurants whenever I visit the ocean state.

Any kind of food is fair game.

They have access to some of the delicious fresh seafood you could find, delicious Asian cuisine, authentic European favorites, and more.

But their American classics…

Just wow.

When all you’re craving is a juicy, delicious burger, Rhode Island is the state to do that in.

There are many local offerings, from traditional burger joints, to fried seafood shacks that are serving up homemade onion rings and hand cut fries, to stylish New England restaurants with the best local fare you could find.

When in Rhode Island, you’d be doing it wrong if you didn’t grab a classic burger and French fries.

Check out some of my favorite burger joints below!


Crazy Burger Cafe & Juice Bar

144 Boon St, Narragansett, RI 02882


If you were looking for insane, over the top food options, unique drinks, and of course, delicious burgers, you’ve found your place.

Since 1995, Crazy Burger has been serving up some of the area’s best burgers.

Their Mad Max burgers feature “ground beef blended in wacky fashion,” and have all sorts of options from a classic cheeseburger, to a cajun burger, fire “works” burger with melted gouda, caramelized onion strips, crispy bacon and red pepper rings, burgers with brie cheese on them, and just about everything else you can think of.

If you were looking for a tried and true Rhode Island staple to satisfy all of your burger needs, this is the place for you.

Harry’s Bar & Burger


121 N Main St, Providence, RI 02903


Known for its sliders, boozy milkshakes, and extensive draft beer list, Harry’s Bar & Burger has been voted the #1 burger in Rhode Island.

Talk about an accomplishment!

Their juicy patty is made with 100% pure Hereford beef and fresh local produce, and all of their sliders are made with love and care.

Here, you can get their very own burger sliders in many shapes and sizes, with some of the best toppings you could imagine (I mean, a burger topped with cheese sauce? The best).

Aside from burgers, their menu includes their unique hot dogs, chicken parm sliders, hard shakes, wings, and much more.

Chomp Kitchen and Drinks


117 Ives St, Providence, RI 02906


Burgers, sandwiches, and craft beer.

What more could you ask for?

In both Warren and Providence, Chomp is serving up their very own burgers, and trust me, they’ll be some of the best you’ve ever had.

Their stylish interior and patio create a welcoming atmosphere for people of all walks of life to enjoy some delicious burgers.

And when I say delicious burgers, I don’t just mean the traditional options.

I mean unique offerings.

Crab rangoon burgers.

Cheesy fajita burgers.

Mushroom steakhouse burgers, smoky aioli patty melt, and many many more.

This perfect place is one of the best in the game for mouthwatering burgers.


Stanley’s Famous Hamburgers


535 Dexter St, Central Falls, RI 02863


This retro joint has almost a perfect ranking on Google over thousands of reviews for a reason.

Stanley himself made a goal for himself to sell the most flavorful, affordable hamburger possible in 1932 during the Great Depression, and now in 2023, his vision is still going strong.

The same honest burger is cranked out daily, for thousands of burger lovers around the state.

There’s now a wider variety of burger options available, with many customizable options.

But the OG burger will always be available, fresh, and just as it was served almost 100 years ago.
