Food was good but not excellent. Affordable. This is Mayan food so it is more bland than typical Mexican. We were expecting more flavor.

We have driven by this unassuming place many times and decided to visit. We were smart to get there early and were seated at the bar. The owner was just leaving and we were left in good hands. The food was great, much better than most of the American Mexican food that I have had, and I was sorry that... More

Don't be fooled by the exterior. What used to be a diner has turned into and excelent dining experience on the interior. The food is genuine and excellent. Almost too much to eat. Really good selection of beverages. The service is quick, helpful, and friendly. There is outdoor dining in the summer, and we have to return or that.

At the risk of sounding trite, the food is phenomenal. Try the Sangria - it was excellent. Everything that we had was delicious and very fresh! Service was good. We enjoyed our meal here much more than the more expensive Peter Havens.

We decided to try this restaurant and were able to make reservations the same day, which I strongly recommend. The restaurant is small but not crowded. They aren't open every day, so check first. The menu is very limited, offering three versions of "tortillas" (what I would call a taco), empanadas and a tamale. That said, what they do they... More

First visit to Three Stones after having driven past the tiny Brattleboro restaurant many times. I had visited a few times many years ago when it was Ed's Diner...pre-Trip Advisor! Everything good you have seen in previous reviews is true. Quaint venue, friendly staff, intriguing menu and outstanding food across the board. First, this is not your standard Tex-Mex fare....

This is not the Tex-Mex I was raised on in south Texas. And it's not the New Mexico, Arizona or California variant. It's not loaded with fat and it's not loaded with fire, but it is very loaded with interesting favors and original Mayan ingredients and methods. And it's vegan friendly too. My wife will be back anytime we get... More

Three Stones serves only a few dishes, but they are all authentic to the traditions of Mayan cuisine. This is very different from the typical Mexican food we most often consume. You won't get chips and salsa at Three Stones. Mayan food is characterized by the use of corn masa entrees, most notably the tamal (or tamales). Our group of... More

Great food. Limited menu. Wonderful owners. This is a go-to restaurant for me. I only wish they served meatless tamales more often because they are fantastic!

You definitely need a reservation for this great place. They make their own hot sauces and can serve a "flight" of sauces that are well worth it ! Fresh ingredients are the key.
