Bristol, New Hampshire: Rick's Roadside Grill - June 2015

Fancy a box of fresh-cut fries? How about a cup of slow-cooked chili or a bacon cheeseburger grilled fresh while you wait?

No need to see the hostess at a crowded restaurant, instead park yourself at a picnic table with a view of the river and stroll up to Rick's Roadside Grill.

A picturesque vacation spot year round, the northeastern area of the U.S. considered "New England" is comprised of the states of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. Each state is unique and boasts claims to fame from clear water lakes and rolling mountains to museums and amusement parks.

Rick's Roadside Grill sits in sleepy Bristol, New Hampshire off route 3A and just south of sprawling Newfound Lake. Swing by while you are passing through town to head to the 50,000 year-old polar caves or the White Mountain National Forest and order up a hearty meal cooked while you wait.

Rick started his picnic on wheels in 2014 with the goal of serving hot and tasty food for the locals and tourists alike. "I had always dreamed of opening up a hot dog stand," Rick explained with a smile. "A place where families could come and grab a bite while relaxing under a shade tree or reading the newspaper and enjoying the outdoors." Rick pursued his life-long dream and now is the owner operator of the Roadside Grill servicing middle New Hampshire - just the spot where he vacationed as a child with his grandparents every year from their home in New Jersey.

Whether you are enjoying the crystal clear lakes in the summer or leaf peeping in autumn, stop by the friendly food truck and say hello. You can indulge in a warmly-toasted BLT or grilled tomato and cheese sandwich, and while in the neighborhood may be interested in hiking the nearby trails over the rail bridge or fly fishing in the river that flows near the picnic grounds.
