|Burgers, wings, pizza – and the game’s on in Rhode Island
|By Christine E. McDermott
Nachos, burgers, pizza and pretty much anything served Buffalo-style. Are you ready for some football?
With the NFL playoffs about to kick off – and Super Bowl XLVII set for
Feb. 3 – here’s a roundup of Rhode Island restaurants where you can
catch the action while munching on some good eats.
456 Main St., Wakefield
What began as a small fishermen’s tavern in 1947 is a popular hangout for University of Rhode Island students and South County residents alike. It’s a quirky spot with seating on three floors: the Bean Town section pays tribute to the Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and Red Sox; the Pizza Bar overlooks the kitchen; and the original tavern has dollar bills with patrons’ messages stapled to the ceiling. There’s also a Celtic pub and an enclosed patio with a beech tree growing inside. As for the food, the menu is varied, but the Mews is best known for its burgers. There are 69 brews on tap, 22 flat-screen TVs and a pool table.http://www.aaahorizons.com/content.cfm?a=1497
