Very good chicken

Nice place to stop for lunch after shopping all day. Nothing fancy but great chicken. Didn't care for the ribs, but sides are good. We love good fried chicken so would certainly stop again. Great idea for a picnic on beautiful Lake Champlain.

Pretty good for fast food. I had their rotisserie chicken and it was okay. Nothing stand out. The white meat was on dry side. I was not so crazy on their side fish of bake bean. It is pricy but the portion is good and quality is not bad for fast food.

This is a very casual picnic style place with meals ordered at the counter and served on disposable plates and containers. The chicken was o.k. but somewhat disappointing to me -- kind of dry and lacking in flavor in my opinion. If in the area again, I probably would give another casual restaurant a try.

I must say walking in my husband and I weren't too sure about this place, but once the food arrived it was amazing!! The pulled pork sandwich was to die for! And the steamed veggies were fresh and cooked just right! The Mac & Cheese was just like homemade.....we even bought dessert to take back to the hotel and the... More

Easy order online! We ordered the 6 piece tender platter and the Meditterian Salad. Both were absolutely amazing! Sides are definitely fresh, and the chicken is real jumbo sized tenders! These aren't pre-made tenders that are pre-coated and dumped in the fryers, you can tell they are made to order! Great portion size on the sides! Service was great when... More

Ok so first a little full disclosure, I have not been to EVERY single place in Vermont that sells ribs, but I have been to very many and I have also been to many in Montreal and these are just amazingly tender and they just fall off the bone. You will not need a knife or a fork, in fact... More

I just love this chicken, when we stay near by we always ate at another place close by and then we tried Chicken Charlie's. Now even if I am driving near by Burlington on my way to NY, I stop. I have had most things on the menu, but I really like the chicken fingers, the taste is very much... More

Our hotel recommended eating here when we arrived after our 7hr trek to Vermont. Three words. Delicious. Fresh. And Fast. I ordered a lemon and herb wrap and a garden salad. Very yummy. This is a must stop!

We also had the ribs, dried rubbed spice and lightly sauced, cooked to perfection fall off the bone moist. Side dish was mac and cheese, white cheese creamy creamy sauce perfect side for the ribs.

Was the only thing open, which was frustrating as a vegetarian. Prices seemed high but the portions were decent. Did have a couple veggie options I appreciated. Not the greatest food ever but definitely not the worst.
