Crazy Burger--is located in Narragansett on Boon St. My husband found an article about it in the newspaper a few years ago, and figured we would try it out. I tried a "Freaky Fajita" which was wonderful. Marinated ground chicken served in a fajita with homemade salsa & sour cream. A side serving of orzo salad was very tasty. I've tried a bite of different meals from friends and everything I've tasted had wonderful flavors. My husband the hamburger guy--got a hamburger filled with gongozala cheese on portugese sweet roll. Great homemade fries, either white potatoes or sweet potatoes. They have the best pumpkin cheesecake I've ever had--pistachio, ginger & biscotti crust--that you would die for. I've brought friends to this restaurant and all loved it. The presentation on all of these meals were outstanding--you would think you were in a high class/pricey restaurant. We have stopped in on the way home from the beach, Sunday afternoon drive and even once for breakfast, which also was outstanding. Very casual, kind of a hippie style atmosphere, very unique. Crab cakes served on bed of mesculean salad with a special dressing was outstanding--wish I had a clue to how they get those flavors just right. They also serve Chai and Smoothies...what else would you want.

Villa Santini in North Providence a classy place with some of the best calmari I've ever had. Sweet/hot pepper sauce on very tender calmari. Rissorti was creamy, flavorful, but didn't have enough after sharing with everyone--will try to remember not to offer everyone a taste. Chicken Piccata & Francise are the best--flavor, moist & tender. Veal was outstanding--it was difficult to share much with anyone. I've been there 3 times (hope to go back soon *hint to my husband) and have never been disappointed. This restaurant is owned by relatives of a girl I work with--and one of the best Italian restaurants I've tried--even beats out Federal Hill which is known for great Italian foods. Prices are pretty much the same as your higher class restaurants--but worth it. Nice atmosphere and great for special occasions. P.S. Service was exceptional--waiters made you feel like they really cared--guess that's easy when they are serving such special meals.

Beacon & Eggs in Albion (Lincoln) small breakfast nook, but some of the best banana pecan pancakes around.

Diggers Diner in East Greenwich has the best Blueberry and also great gingerbread pancakes.

Anyone have any favorite breakfast places in RI..let me know so I can try them out.
