“Solid Food For East Coast BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

This is a regular place for us in the summer and fall (they close at the end of October). The food is good but if you are a southern, mid-west, or southwest bbq fan this is different. Flavors are good but it may not be exactly what you are used to. Good burritos as well.

“Consistently great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Fourth or fifth time this year.

Excellent pulled pork, gumbo, sides.

Very good ribs.

Spectacular outdoor setting especially on a sunny fall day like today.

Reasonable prices.

We'll be back next season.

“Beef burnt ends!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

My husband and I just returned from a short but amazing fall weekend in VT. I can only review on the what we tried and the beef burnt ends sandwich was one of the best things I have had in a long time. Simply stated it was a mixture of crispy on the outside and tender on the inside chunks of beef on a toasted bun. Nothing short of perfection!! My husbands pulled pork was good but not out of this world. They have so many menu items to chose from and we cant wait to return.

“Did not stand up to the hype”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Over the years I have heard many wonderful things about this little grill stop. My wife and I swung in for lunch. I had the pulled pork BBQ sandwich, she had a sausage sandwich. My pulled pork was ok. A little dry but ok. Nothing to rave about at all. Her sausage sandwich was darn near unbearable. I had one bite and needed to wash my mouth out with tea. Not good at all. Dear wife was a trooper and had three full bites (brave girl). The place seemed clean and prices were on the high end for the quality of food. I won't be going back. I guess others have had better here but one time is enough for me.
