After many attempts to "remodel", "renovate" etc. looks like this place is closed for good. Too bad, it was close to home, and convenient to stop there.

If you want to truly get the feel and flavor of RI you MUST check out this place and try their hot wieners. This place is a RI institution for a lot of people. The wieners are lovingly put together with a special meat sauce...More

The restaurant is what it is. Enjoy the simplicity. Order up 3 hot weiners and don't forget the coffee milk. Cheers!

You can't visit RI without trying New Your Systems. Make sure you bring antacid. Worth the heartburn!

Located at 424 Smith Street, close by the State House on Smith Hill in Providence, Baba's Original New York System has become a Rhode Island tradition by serving the Original weiner since 1927. Described as delicious and addicting, our first-rate weiners taste light when ordering them "all the way" with triple toppings of mustard, meat sauce and celery salt. We also have expanded the menu with a large selection of burgers, sandwiches, milk shakes, salads, soups and wraps. We will be adding Burritos, Tacos and Nachos, and a Greek menu of Souvlaki sandwiches, to our menu June of 2017. View our full menu on our website. We are open for dine in, take out and corporate delivery. We also offer catering. Late night hours. Follow us on Facebook at Baba's Original New York System. Please stop in today and say Hello!
