Stopped by during a tour of New England. Visiting from the uk at the end of an 18 day holiday ,I was not anticipating to enjoy the fried food quite as much as I did ( a lot of over indulgence previously!).We ordered two double Stanley burgers, dirty fries and onion rings. The food whilst not huge was delicious and... More

Stanley's continues to be one of the best lunch stops serving delicious burgers and their Quebec fries covered with brown gravy and melted cheese are a must! Had the pleasure of dining at Stanley's with a young lady who was visiting from England and touring the Blackstone Valley area. She loved the 50's theme interior of the restaurant and really... More

You want a REAL burger? Come to Stanley's, a local legend. Hand made fries. Great food with friendly service. A Rhode Island legend! This place is a "must eat at!"

You may come here or the selection of burgers with caramelized onions (and a lot of other add-ons) but it's the french fries that you will smell first in the parking lot. And do not miss the chili dogs or chili fries, and try the turkey club sandwich too.

This place is gem for burgers and comfort food. They have been around forever and you won't find a better value anywhere. They make their burgers on a grill top with onions grilled with the burger. Add a fresh bun and some pickles and it doesn't get any better. They also have the best hand cut fries to accompany any... More

I love their greasy, tasty hamburgers. Everyone should try Stanley's at least once! It's an old style diner that still plays oldies music. It's really fun and really tasty.

Don't let Central Falls scare you away from this restaurant. It isn't much to look at outside. But, it is friendly as soon as you walk in. Stanley's came recommended by my family that lives in RI. Stanley's has been around for over 50 years. Their StanleyBurger is about 2oz burger with tons of grilled onions and pickles. I would... More

Stanley burgers was a childhood treat. The best greasy burgers and fries in the world. I no longer live in RI, but when I get back I have to have my stanley burger fix. Love it with cheese, mushrooms and peppers. Better than Iggy's and that is saying something. Yuimmy, I am craving one right now. Good Coleslaw too. Price... More

Both Central Falls and Providence restaurants are worth the trip. My menu favorite is the Stanley's Dirty Fries!!!! Order up a Stanley Burger and some Dirty Fries and you'll have your fix for great fried food. Also, if you like a clean restaurant with fast service you'll get all that too!!
