Remembering Rhode Island's
Good Ol' Days
I worked for a Company in Cranston in the 70's.We used to work late on Wed. nights.One time we sent out for Supper.The next day we were all sick!~We nicknamed it "Arthur Trecherous"
I seem to think that there was also an Arthur Treachers on Post Road close to the old Ann and Hope store.
Yes, you're right. Seafood chains don't last long in R.I. Red Lobster closed up. Why go to a chain for seafood when we can get all the fresh fish we want at the local mom & pop places?
There was an Arthur Treacher's Fish and Chips on West Boylston Street in Worcester, Mass in the late 70s. The same building now houses the Papa Ginos.
There was one in South Attleboro, MA on rte 123 right in between where it crosses rte 1 and rte 1A. It's a D'Angelo's now but they still have the lamppost shaped sign out front.
That's gone, too. So is the Red Lobster just over the line.
I remember there was one on RT 1 and 123 in South Atteboro growing up and the food was was ok at best.
