If you and your boo are foodies that love romantic walks along the coastline, Rhode Island is the place for you!

1. Evelyn’s Drive-In (Tiverton, RI): Nothing is better than seafood with a view, which is why Evelyn’s Drive-In landed the top spot on Guy Fieri’s list of must-haves in Rhode Island. Located at 2335 Main Road in Tiverton, Rhode Island, Evelyn’s is the place to be as summer comes into full swing. Their quirky menu and breathtaking view of the ocean continues to attract foodies from all over, especially after their debut on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives!

2. Louie’s Restaurant (Providence, RI): If you’re looking for a reliable diner with delicious, affordable meals, Louie’s Restaurant is the place for you. This famous family-owned diner has been open for more than 62 years and resides in the heart of Rhode Island at 286 Brook Street in Providence. Louie’s is known as the place where you can get literally anything at any time. You want homemade lasagna at 5AM? Done. You want their famous granola pancakes at 2PM? Done and done.
