"If you happen to drive past Mike’s Kitchen, you probably won’t notice it’s a restaurant. Located in a VFW hall with only one little sign outside other than the Post Number, Mike’s doesn’t need to advertise. To those who seek out great Italian food at low prices, it is ..."   [Read More]

An hors d'oeuvre found almost nowhere else, but so loved by the Ocean State that it appears on menus from Watch Hill to Little Compton: snail salad.

Mike's chicken parmesan is really big. It is fried to luscious crustiness and blanketed with cheese and sauce. Barely visible below it is a meal's worth of pasta.

Tender, moist, and sweet, set upon a bed of spicy rice, Mike's pork loin is a frequent special. At $7.95, it is a super bargain.

Chicken a la Mike is chef Mike's version of chicken cordon bleu. It is stuffed with Italian ham, cheese, and a moist vein of herbs.

At the beginning of lunch hour, just after 11am, all the tables were clean. Several were reserved for regulars.

One of the fundamental rules of finding good roadfood is to look for the restaurant that has no sign outside to indicate it is a restaurant. (Of course, unless you know what you're looking for, it's a tough search!) Mike's Kitchen, in a VFW hall, is famous among those who know about it, but gives no clue to strangers that it's a great place to eat.
