    We can’t deny that Olive Garden breadsticks are the bomb, but we promise that The Pasta House in Fairhaven has so much more to offer. Better than homemade!

    You’ll want to head to downtown New Bedford and stop at No Problemo. Skip Chipotle and save yourself from the inevitable food poisoning / contamination.

    Forget Papa Gino’s or any other chain place. There’s Brick in New Bedford or Fairhaven, and Friendly Pizza in Dartmouth!

    Ice Cream

    You’re better off chilling at Acushnet Creamery rather than Cold Stone or Friendly’s. Trust us.

    Texas Road House may have that addictive cinnamon butter, but that’s nothing next to the mouthwatering cornbread at Cask & Pig in Dartmouth. Not to mention some of the other delicious BBQ items on their menu.
