Restaurants in Fall River, MA

Just over the Rhode Island line on Massachusetts’s south shore, Fall River is a treasure trove of Roadfood: unique restaurants serving unusual dishes, many of which are Fall River’s alone. Among these are the hot cheese sandwich (no, it’s not grilled cheese!) and the chow mein sandwich as well as such Portuguese-ancestored specialties as chourico & bean dogs, chourico pizzas, malasadas, stuffies, bean cakes, kale soup, and chicken Mozambique. The city’s Liberal Club is an interesting slice of life: restaurant, bar, social club, and banquet hall dating back to 1915. No visit to Fall River would be right without a stop at Hartley’s Original Pork Pies, where all the traditional savory pies are supplemented by the likes of Buffalo chicken pie and weekend salmon pie.
