The shack like building is deceptive of the wonderful soup creations being dished out from inside. The customer service was friendly and quick as I ordered at the take out menu in 32 degree weather. You get your soup or chili in a paper cup that has to be the size of a medium/large soda cup with cover. The slice... More

This is a fun stop. Soup and other food on the go. Your soup comes in a travel cup so you can sip and drive. Amazing soup, freshly made. Great selection too, with vegan choices too.

A shack on a trailer. Make that a cool shack on a trailer just off Route 91 in Bellows falls. This place is a hut on wheels that has the most fantastic, heart warming, happy smile on your face soups you could imagine. Served in 16 ounce cups with a slice of French bread to boot, the soups are hot,... More

It's a bit on the pricey side, but it's some tasty, healthier food. And, just to clarify, the "bowls" refer to soups, but they have other menu items and super delish smoothies!

The sign is what caught my attention. The food was delicious. Hot and vegetarian style. It was a convenient stop. I was heading to a near by shop and this caught my eye. When I'm in the area I will definitely stop here again

Smoking Bowls has amazing food. I have tried many of the soups and love them all. Hard to choose my favorite but I guess I'd say the Cheech and Chong Chili wins. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich and really enjoyed it. Check out there web site for hours and menu for the day. ENJOY!!

I came across this little place and had to stop and try it! We got New England clam chowder in a mason jar and it was the best I have ever had! I can't wait to go back again! Such a cute and unique idea!

Sign is from an abandoned gas station, Golf i'm guessing and the restaurant is on wheels, But don't drive by if you are hungry! Pulled pork sandwich was large enough for two people with really good cold slaw. There are picnic tables out back or you can eat in your car. Only one person at the counter and I doubt... More

I'll be blunt: It's a roadside shack. I'll be clear: The lobster rolls are OUTSTANDING. Each year we do leaf-peeping, we stop here to get lobster rolls and then go have a picnic somewhere. We have done this several times and plan to do it again next year when we are back. Excellent food. Don't be put off by the... More

Having lived previously in California, our first thought was bowls like El Pollo Loco had: rice, chicken, etc. all in a bowl. Not so! The name is a reference to soup, but we went in the summer so we opted for BBQ Pulled Pork sandwiches on pretzel rolls: delicous! We also opted for the $5 Mason jar drinks (one coconut... More
