Finding a great ‘hole in the wall’ restaurant is tough. You have to be a true local. Some places that don’t look like much from the outside aren’t great, but sometimes if you give it a chance, these places will blow you away. Luckily we’ve done the legwork to identify some of the best ‘hole in the wall’ restaurants in New Hampshire. All you have to do is eat!
1. Delaney's Hole In The Wall, North Conway
With a name like that, Delaney's had to be first on our list. But really, the food here is great, even if the menu will raise your eyebrow with American favorites and sushi. Whatever you order, you won't be disappointed.
Tuna tartar with seaweed salad wasn't what you were expecting to order when you pulled in.
2. Margi's Dream Diner, Manchester
Blink once and you'll miss Margi's, which looks more like a house than a diner. However, stop in for breakfast or lunch and you'll know why this is hailed as Manchester's best kept secret.
The "hole" family will love Margi's.
3. Tuk Tuk Thai Cuisine, Hanover
When you get to the restaurant and have to walk into the basement to eat, it's usually not a good sign. At Tuk Tuk, however, the food is so good you won't even mind eating underground.
Drunken noodles, anyone?
4. Beefside, Concord
Every roast beef shop claims to be world famous, but Beefside really is that good. If you're looking for good food with no frills, this is the place for you.
Make sure you go hungry!
5. Saigon Noodles, Manchester
You don't even have to know what Pho is to appreciate the delicious taste at this Vietnamese noodle bar. The rare 5-star yelp review says all you need to know.
6. Area 23, Concord
This picture of the outside of Area 23 looks more like a haunted house than somewhere you want to have a beer. But trust us, once you're inside you'll love the warm atmosphere, great brews, and good food. It's no wonder this new bar has been receiving state-wide attention.
There's plenty going on inside.
7. Lexi's Joint, Portsmouth
You may not think of burgers as a worthy dinner option. If so, you haven't tried Lexi's burgers. From the healthy to the oh-so-bad-for-you, Lexi's burgers will leave your mouth watering.
Mac-n-cheese burger, anyone?
8. Kashmir Indian Cuisine, Salem
New Hampshire isn't exactly known for its Indian Cuisine, but this hole in the wall restaurant in Salem draws Indian food lovers from all over New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
Enjoy an Indian Feast at Kashmir.
9. Sabor Brazil, Nashua
Most New Hampshire residents have probably never eaten Brazilian food. Although it doesn't look like much from the outside, Sabor Brazil has great food and rave reviews to match.
It's time to enjoy your first Brazilian feast.
