Order and pay at counter. Food brought to table. Burgers tasted like store bought patties and then charcoal. It was okay.

Awesome burger! The sweet potato fries are amazing. The place does get extremely busy and they have limited seating so be careful because you might be eating in your car. It was nice out so I sat outside and it's was a great experience. I would recommend to anyone looking for a quick bite. But it was not cheap as... More

Great burger and fry place. The chipotle maple BBQ sauce is the best I ever had! Not fancy, order up front and find your own seat. They brought the food to us when it was ready. Outdoor or indoor seating, local and major label beers were available.

Basically it is just a run of mill chip truck with aspirations of being a real restaurant. burgers and other food were overpriced and just ok. Only in a resort town like Stowe could this business work.

Word of mouth had it that this was a good place to grab a burger and have some good pulled pork, so we stopped in for dinner after a round of miniature golf. Unfortunately, the "kick a-- burger" we were promised on our receipt, yes, the actual bit of profanity appears on the bottom of the receipt as my 9... More

We had read great reviews about the Blue Donkey so decided to try it for dinner. It wasn't very busy when we arrived and we received our food right away. We all ordered burgers and were so disappointed on how awful they were. They were super expensive and looked like hockey pucks. They were over cooked, burnt and had little... More

The Blue Donkey has so many choices - something for virtually everyone - carnivore or vegetarian. Each burger comes with fries, or you can substitute onion rings. We went at lunch over the 4th of July weekend and there was a long line, but after we ordered the food came out promptly. I'd return!

The wife and I went there because they looked like a great burger place. The burgers the wife and I got were OK. I guess I set the bar a bit higher as the main thing they sell are burgers. The sweet potato fries were awesome. We got the burgers quickly. For 2 burgers, a drink and milkshake were 35... More
