Great BBQ. Some free staters say "the best", others disagree. But the one thing everyone agrees is "it's damn good".

No BBQ debate or conversation will be taken seriously unless Smokehaus is mentioned as a top contender. Their brisket is good -- really good. Be sure to check the board to the right of the cashier because they always have specials worth checking out. If you're lucky enough to be there when they're offering brisket chili, don't be dumb and not order it.

Traveling Texas Smoke Shop


Rubbin Butts BBQ


KC's Rib Shack


Road Hawg BBQ

If their BBQ isn't to your liking you can't go wrong with their fried chicken.

Georgia's Northside

Guerilla Grill


Puritan Backroom



One of the oldest restaurants in New Hampshire, Puritan Backroom invented the fried chicken tender and mudslides. Many say it's got the best fried chicken tenders.

Red Arrow Diner


Chez Vachon


French Canadian food. Huge portions for an affordable price. They have a banana bread French toast that is to die for.



You're not a Granite Stater until you've been to 99s. Hell, you're not a New Englander until you've been to 99s. The steak tips are good.

Rye Harbor Lobster Pound

Jimmy Jones Locker

Tilton House of Pizza


This is a good place to go if you like really stringy mozzarella. Their fried haddock, chicken fingers and spicy fries are also well liked by locals. Their sweet potato fries will change your opinion of sweet potato fries.

Wilton House of Pizza

Wakefield House of Pizza


Located in downtown Wakefield, this place may not look impressive but their pizza will knock your socks off.

Annula's Pizza & Deli

Clemento's Pizzeria & Brew

Big Ben Pizzeria

Alley Cat Pizzeria

Nik and Charlies


Located in Greenland, Nik & Charlie's passes the grease test when it comes to high-quality pizza.

G & P Pizzeria


Located in Chester, G & P Pizzeria's alfredo sauce is basically boiled cream but their pizzas are great and the maple pizza is decadent and amazing.

Plus when King Sununu told all the restaurants to contact trace G&P dug out some kids old stained spiral notebook and told their customers "sign it or don't, we don't care".
