Evelyn's Drive-In

One of the treasures of our bayside community in Tiverton, Rhode Island is Evelyn's Drive-In, the local clam shack. Tillerwoman and I headed down there for lunch today... a clam sandwich and a local brew sitting by the water. What could be better on a hot, humid summer day?

When we were at Evelyn's last summer there was a TV crew there filming a spot about Evelyn's for the Food Network series, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Judging by the YouTube video above, their vast global TV audience didn't get to see Tillerwoman and me chomping down on our fried clams, but that's OK.

If you're down Tiverton way, you should check out Evelyn's. And if you don't believe me, here are a few reviews.

We like to stop there on our way to restock at Sakonnet Vineyards.

Sounds like a plan. We actually stocked up at SV yesterday.

Yum......We'll come over just for the clams, any good Sav Blanc over there to top them off?

To be perfectly honest, at Evelyn's you do not need a top-of-the-range wine to enjoy superb food in a friendly environment. If you want a Sauvignon, Evelyn's will serve you Fish Eye at $20 a bottle. Perfectly fine plonk. Or you could visit nearby Sakonnet Vineyards and buy a few bottles of their signature Vidal Blanc.
