We were the only ones eating here on a mid morning. I ordered my burger medium and it was completely well done and charred. I returned it and it came back the exact same way haha. Burgers were pretty overpriced so we definitely weren’t impressed...More

Very good place to stop if you want some good food while taking a break from the bike path or just stopping by as you go up the road.

I'm a pit beef eatin' fool and this place did not disappoint though it doesn't match the same fare you can get regularly and anywhere in Baltimore! But in a pinch in the Northeast Kingdom I highly recommend it--service was terrific!

Food was great, burger was cooked to perfection, cashier was friendly, service was fast and value is good. Ordered sweet potato fries, just delicious. As a biker, would love to see paved parking at the bottom of their hill.

This place was amazing. I really loved the burgers here and couldn't believe the prices were still around $10/burger+fries. The place was really hopping in the summer when I went and they didn't disappoint. Of course, they also had great Vermont beer.

Well this place certainly does not come close to their own hype. We were expecting a great burger and what we got was something else. My husband and I ordered different burgers, I cannot even remember the name of the burger I ordered, but it...More

This was just your average burger joint. Order at the counter and they bring it to you. Cute name for the place and nice outdoor space, but the food was just average for a burger joint. I'm not a burger person, but my friend was...More
