A good place for lots of smoked food at a reasonable price. Funky interior, with surprisingly nice gardens in the back. Well smoked meats, and plenty of it, friendly service, lots so locals eating here. You will not walk away hungry. Our friends had tex-mex options which they also liked. The ribs were especially good

Warning...Do not go here too late in the evening. It is a bar for local folks, thus the name. With that out of the way let me say that the owners of this place know how to smoke Pork.

Real barbeque and a great selection of craft beers. Ribs were dry rubbed and delicious. Revolving selection of local and other premium beers at reasonable prices

Very casual, good service, very good pulled pork with 2 sides. Not crowded when we went - early evening. No AC, only open windows & fans, which might be a problem for some.

Found out from of the locals that for now Wed nights are $1 rib night. What else can I say, excellent beer on tap and excellent $1 ribs. Beware that the ribs are twice as expensive on other nights.

The worst customer service from the bartender! Vermonters don't treat people like that! I would never recommend it to anyone!

Great atmosphere, big portions, lots of beer, awesome fries, and great smokey ribs....whats not to like. This local gem sparked our interest upon arriving in the area and we had to check it out. We were not disappointed. Just plain old good smoke house food. Try it, you'll like it.
