The Two RV Gypsies: Full-Time RVers
Karen and Lee Duquette

Look below for the TOC

The two RV Gypsies live full-time in their RV (it is their only home) and when they eat in restaurants throughout the USA and Canada, they sometimes post comments about their experiences here. Comments made by the two RV Gypsies do NOT make the restaurants good or bad in general. It is just their own personal opinion.

Some restaurants mentioned here may not still be in business, so it is always good to check before you go. Everything mentioned on this website is always subject to change as time passes.

Most restaurants listed below have a link to another page (underlined), but some may just have a brief comment and no link to another page.

There are two menus below, one for Restaurants in the USA (choose a state) and just under that menu there is a link for restaurants in Canada.
