Great service, great sandwiches; what more can one ask for. For a quick bite to eat, you can it in or take it away. Enjoy!

I have been coming here for years and the quantity in small sandwiches are so disappointing. $7 for a small cheese steak yielded about 3 chunks is chicken bits on each half. All bun, show me the meat! Bathroom disgusting, restaurant dirty in general. Sorry...this was my second try in a few months to keep it on my list, won't return.More

The Paisley Hippo is a little hard to find, it is tucked away in a small strip mall, but you will be glad you made the effort to seek the Hippo out. There aren’t too many seats so you may have to take your order...to go. We had the Vermonster, the Smokin’ turkey club, sweet potato fries, and regular fries. They were all great. The menu has a ton of interesting sandwich combos, they also have hamburgers and cheese steaks. The sandwiches come in two sizes, human size and hippo size. Unless you are a hungry, hungry hippo the human size was plenty large enough for me, especially with the fries. The Hippo is a great find.More

We were passing through and asked a local where to eat. They recommended The Paisley Hippo. The guys were friendly and explained many of the sandwiches. The rolls were very fresh. The meat and cheese were sliced fresh for our sandwiches! A huge bonus, in...my opinion!! I would definitely recommend this place!More

Oh my.....a bunch of foodies run this place that absolutely love food! I have never in my life had sweet potatoes fries this good and crispy! The bread they use is out of this world and the specialty sauces can't be beat! I overheard one...of the guys behind the counter that they can cook wings to your liking and do them right! After eating their "Fiesta" BLT sandwich along with the sweet potato fries I believe that they can do wings right! When people love food so much and want to please the customers like they do, you really can't go wrong! Great job guys!!! I'll be back for sure!!!More

This was a very well ran establishment! They were very kind and helpful in making the decision. The food was hot, well prepared and everyone there was working quickly and very polite from entry to exiting the restaurant. We had the Reuben and the Flo....They were amazing and the fries were delicious. I wish there were more businesses like this around. Highly recommend this place!More

The Paisley Hippo has always been our first choice of where to eat when we are in the area. They absolutely have the BEST sandwiches EVER!! There are several steak and cheese options, all of them are amazing. Both my husband and I love them....My husband also loves the Reuben and one of my favorites is the Turkey Jack. Oh, and the sweet potato fries are the best I've ever had! We will miss John, but I'm sure the new owner's will be just as amazing; as they have been with John for a very long time.More

I live in Hinesburg and sometimes forget the Paisley Hippo is here, as if's off in the corner of Firehouse Plaza. But our foster kids often request it when we go our for a sandwich, and the food is very good.

Looks like a total dive in this pathetic strip mall, however, once inside it has this coziness where a surprising quantity of people are filling orders. The sandwiches are huge and freshly made.
