Celebrity Chef Guy Fieri. Well, any guesses? I'll save you the torture and just give you the answer. 37!!! That's right. 37 different Massachusetts restaurants have been featured on "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" over the past 17 years since the show began! There's even a website where you can check them all out.

Dining spots from all over the Bay State have been featured including cities like Boston, Peabody, Attleboro, Salem, Fall River, and Plymouth. However, only one eatery can be the best. The Favorite in Flavortown, you might say.

Recently, Delish came up with a list of the very best "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" in every state across the country. The best restaurant in Massachusetts is located in the town of Somerville. And the building it's housed in is not your typical building!

Kelly's has a short, sweet, simple, delicious menu. One of those menus where you'll have to try everything once. And did I mention that Kelly's just looks super cool? Both inside...

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
