Buffalo chicken burrito! Amazing. Will miss this place being in walking distance, I have been a fan for years. Hope they get a great new location as the bar side was a bit run down. Also hope something new/enjoyable moves in.

Thanks to the business unfriendly RI legislature there,s plenty of available commercial property for rent.

It's really sickening how Joe Sousa always seems to put a negative twist on everything posted here on Patch. Like RI is the only state with this problem? Wake up Joe the whole country is this way! Perhaps you need to find a new hobby besides sitting at your computer 24/7 and posting negativity, Perhaps you should try and be part of a solution instead of being a part of the problem.

Rhode Island Stuck at Bottom of Top States For Business If there is a top state for business in our annual study, there must be a bottom state. For 2012, that dubious distinction goes to Rhode Island — for the second year in a row. CNBC Thanks RI Legislature
