Stumbled on this place on our way to Canada. Good burgers and had my first Heady Topper. If in Stowe again, we will go back.

Stopped here on a whim as it was very close to the farmer's market in the middle of Stowe. The place is charming..open to the lovely weather and the activity of the farmer's market. We ordered a simple meal which was delicious...especially the french fries! We also tried an unfiltered beer on tap which was "hoppy" but not bitter. The... More

Located in a small shack on the Mountain Road in Stowe, the Blue Donkey could be easy to miss. Don't...the prices are extremely reasonable for a tourist town that the food is top notch! Specialty burgers, chicken wraps, hand cut fries and onion rings that are the best we've tasted in a long time. The creemees are great too! Fun... More

Not usually our kind of place, but it looked neat driving by so we stopped. You know the place, order at the counter, get a seat somewhere and they bring it to you. Very casual, burgers were good, fries were great, wait time was not too long. Overall experience just so-so. Pretty pricey considering the level of service. Two burgers... More

We stopped by after going to the car show. The place were dirty, the waitstaff did not clean the tables or floor properly. We both had the Blue Donkey burger but I asked for well done which it wasn't. Food was greasy. $10.95 for a burger which was expensive.

I will be going back the... More
