Known for their chicken fingers and mudslides, the Puritan Backroom is also a local political hotspot. They also have fantastic strawberry shortcake. It does get quite busy, so plan ahead!

We’ve gone here a few times since moving to NH. I have to say that the service is always great and the food is excellent. Portions are huge but you’ll want to save room for some of their ice cream!!

It's a short 10 minutes away. From the SNHU Ctr, drive north on Elm st thru the downtown for a mile or so. Take Right at lights at Webster Street (Rte 3/28). Puritan is on your right in about another mile or so.
