Sounds rude, tastes great!

The clam shack trinity

Clam cakes are deep-fried dough mixed with chopped clams. A stuffed clam (or “stuffie”) is bread stuffing (bread crumbs, onions, spices) mixed with chopped clams and baked in a clam shell. Rhode Island clear chowder is an anemic broth made from clams, potatoes, bacon, onions, herbs, and spices, which is commonly mistaken for the dishwater that comes from cleaning up after New England clam chowder.

Coffee milk

Milk mixed with coffee syrup. It’s the Rhode Island state drink.


A prefabricated structure, built in a factory, and transported to a location for food service. Diners were invented in Rhode Island, so we’re rather fond of them.


Fried hamburger, peppers, onions, tomato sauce, and crushed red pepper, served on a torpedo roll. Like a sloppy Joe on crack.

Frozen lemonade

Granulated ice flavored with lemons and sugar. The best part of summer.

"All natural!"


Small hot dogs with a natural casing, slathered in mustard, meat sauce, chopped onions, and celery salt, and served in a steamed bun. Finding inconsistent spellings of “wiener” is part of the fun!

Where can I find a weiner like that!
Olneyville New York System (two locations)
"R.I.'s Best Hot Wieners!"

Johnnycakes (or Jonnycakes)

Pancake-like disks made specifically from Rhode Island ground white flint corn. Asphalt roofing tiles, just like the settlers ate.

Pizza strips

Rectangular slices of crust slathered with spicy pizza sauce. They have no cheese and are properly served at room temperature.
