Great homemade food throughout the day!

On a recent trip to Stowe my husband and I had the luxury of eating here twice. We took takeout for lunch one day while out snowshoeing and stopped in for breakfast on our last morning there. Whether you take out or eat in, you order at the counter and they will bring your order to you. Everything... read more

We visited here for lunch in search of their supposed amazing burgers. I can say the burgers were unfortunately very average nothing special. All of the burgers were well done, and in some bites the meat tasted charred. The burgers were dry and not flavorful at all. The only saving grace was that the onion rings were not half bad....

My family loved this place. I had a very well prepared turkey burger, my daughter had a grilled cheese, and my husband has a cheeseburger. All our sandwiches came with fresh cut fries... the only kind with the fat and calories in my opinion. When in Stowe, I would suggest here as a great stop for lunch.

I was very disappointed when I ordered the Patty Melt and fries for lunch a week ago. The fries were good, but the Texas Toast on the Patty Melt was burnt toast. Not toasted, but burnt. Imagine my surprise when I bit into it, hoping for a juicy, tasty burger done medium and bit into a crispy, dry and hard... More

The pictures of the burgers online had me salivating but I was a little disappointed in my "rodeo" burger. It was just ok. The sweet potato fries were the best part of the meal.

This restaurant boasts having the best burgers and they're not lying! Definantly worth the time if you're on the look out for a great burger place. I gave it a "very good" instead of an excellent because we unfortunately went during a dinner rush and there was not enough seating. However because everything is made to order, by the time... More

I knew I had to come here because the name cracked me up so much! We got there around noon time, and my 86 year old grandmother really wanted eggs toast and bacon, and they were kind enough to make it for her - even though it was past serving time! The curly fries were to die for and the... More

The four of us enjoyed our lunch very much. You place your lunch at the counter , and your lunch is brought to your table. The Caesar salad was good as was the hamburger and fries. Excellent French fried onion rings. Two of us split the pulled pork plate, and it was plenty.
