Good Burgers

This is a great casual restaurant. The burgers and fries were very good. The menu had many options if you wanted something other than a burger.

The food is good, and you do get a fries with the order. We had a burger and pulled pork, and we were underwhelmed. Hot day for an open concept allowed flies to jpin in the fest. There are better places for the price.

Great Place for a Party. The Blue Donkey, aka in Stowe; as Burgers on Board, has a new look. WOW what a great place to have a party or meet a group of friends for some tastey burgers! There are lots of new spaces and the place looks fantastic. Our table ordered 2 Classic Burgers and a Southwestern with hand... More

Owner of the restaurant parked his Mazda Miata on the only available handicap spot (vehicle did not display a handicap tag) and I had to struggle with my cane up and down a gravel incline from the lower parking area to and from the restaurant. Ordered the "famous" Blue Donkey Burger - had better burgers before, it was really not... More

One of my favorite post-mountain bike ride stops. Great burgers and fries with a fair beer selection. Not a lot of beers on tap but usually something that will hit the spot. Service is quick and they have a nice outdoor seating area. Check their web site for hours because they vary in the off season.

We ordered the southwest and the wop-er burger. Both with a veggie patty and fries. My friend had caesar salad. The burgers were very good and there was just the right amount if fries. The salad was fresh with shaved parmesan and giant croutons. I will definitely come back.

We ordered a burger and a pulled pork plate. The fries and the sweet potato fries were good. Someone was smoking outside and we moved to an inside table to get away from the smoke while eating.

The burgers here are awesome. They make them all to order so it's not "fast food". You won't be disappointed. But heed this advice- once you pick the burger up, you can't put it down- the bun will fall apart- just ask my husband lol!
