Olneyville NY System, Providence, R.I., Mentioned in Forbes 15 Most Memorable Meals of 2014

Olneyville classic mini wieners
Forbes.com recently featured Olneyville New York System in Providence, R.I., in its 15 Most Memorable Meals of 2014 article.

Contributing writer Larry Olmsted went worldwide to find the best meals, and certainly showed accuracy and good taste bud genes when writing about Olneyville's "mini wieners" topped with onions and chili -- otherwise known as wiener sauce. They are truly delicious!

This isn't the first time Olneyville has been recognized beyond the local media. The James Beard Foundation, a well-known proponent of American food cuisine, awarded Olneyville the 2014 America’s Classics Award for "regional establishments, often family-owned, that are treasured for their quality food, local character, and lasting appeal."  The Food Network, The Daily Meal and Travel Channel have also found fast food bliss at Olneyville by praising this fourth generation fast food restaurant.

I first met co-owner Greg Stevens last summer when working on a Google Maps Virtual Tour for
"All the way" wieners with fries and coffee milk
Olneyviile and can attest to the greatness of this Providence dining gem. Stevens and his sister Stephanie Stevens Turini really run an extremely well-run business with a friendly long-time staff that are skilled, often funny and treat their employment as not just a job but also a lifestyle. While they do serve burgers, tuna melts and other comfort foods, the wieners are the go-to meal here, along with fries and a locally legendary glass of coffee milk. Not sure if Olmsted had this exact version, but I especially love the "All the Way" signature wiener with ground beef, yellow mustard, onions, celery salt, special spices and soybean oil on a steamed bun.

This is a no frills restaurant, open from late morning until the wee hours, definitely worth trying in Rhode Island or even an hour away in Boston.

Congrats to the Forbes mention, and kudos to writer Olmsted for getting it right when including Olneyville!
