Authentic Mayan food

I love this place but it's hard to secure a seating. Having said that it is well worth waiting and planning ahead. Food is authentic Mayan - delicious, inventive - I have been here several times and every time it' is consistently perfect. It's cozy inside and in warm weather there's a small outdoor... read more

This small restaurant with al fresco dining in warmer months is one of our favorites. The menu is limited but everything is delicious and made to order. No gloppy, cloying cheese at this Mexican restaurant. All flavors are pronounced and presentations are pretty. Like most Mexican restaurants it is not fancy but it is colorful and comfortable and filled to... More

We have had the pleasure of dining at this establishment since they opened. I could eat here every day and still be excited with the food! My favourite place to eat in Brattleboro. My only complaint is that I can't get enough of this place!

Even Vermonters joke that their state is green... when it isn't white. So finding as off-the-map a cuisine choice as genuine Aztec cooking at Three Stones in Brattleboro was like discovering an ancient treasure. Everything is fresh and in loving homage to the owners' heritage, and served inside a quintessentially Americana old diner. A friendly and intimate bar serves the... More

I have lived in the Valley for over a decade, and used to blow right by a tiny, ramshackle diner as I went down the hill to downtown Brattleboro. In the place of former diner, is now a very unique Mexican style restaurant. The food is something unlike anything else I have eaten, and I have been to many Mexican... More

I looked on yelp hoping to find a Mexican restaurant in the area I was staying. What a find. This was some of the best Mexican food I've had. Tia Lupe was super friendly - visiting from Cancún - and I just had a really fun time here. Highly, highly recommend.

We were recommended this place by a local and I am so glad he referred us. This place has a small, but amazing menu. We got the Empanadas and tacos.

You probably should have a reservation for this restaurant. It is small but very popular and justifiably so. My friend and I arrived without a reservation on a Saturday night but we were willing to be seated at the bar so we had the empanadas that everyone praises and they were delicious. We shared a chocolate dessert....scrumptious. Go there.

This was really a treat. We visited based on previous reviews and were not disapointed. Although we did not have reservations on a Friday night, the owner appologized for the "5 minute wait." We were seated promptly and enjoyed the empanadas with both beef and chicken. The plate was complete with salad an rice and beans all of which were... More

Three Stones has become my secret favorite restaurant. Food is terrific, service correct and friendly. The owner is a gem. There are a few outdoor tables.
