We took a family trip recently, hitting several sites in VT that we wanted to see, and this was by far the best restaurant of the trip. We stopped in for lunch and enjoyed the meal (and the service) so much we came back for...dinner. My daughter had the ribs, and when she went to pick up the first rib, she only came up with a bone: the ribs literally fell off the bone. I had the brisket; delicious and insanely tender. Later, I had one of their burgers and what can I say? It was tasty and satisfying - everything you want a burger to be. The service was very warm and friendly - I felt welcome and very comfortable. (I have to say when we showed up for dinner, it was a little close to closing time; I wasn't sure they would seat us. Not only did they seat us, but the waitress was very engaging; I did not feel hurried or rushed in any way.) Finally, I have to say something about the Clam Chowder. I like Clam Chowder, and didn't really expect to see it on the menu for a BBQ place. Everything we had for lunch was so good, I had to try the chowder for dinner: It is among the best clam chowders I have ever had. This was probably the biggest surprise of the trip. They should package their chowder and sell it in stores. Wicked Awesome Chowder. Just saying.......More

Totally unplanned exit from I 89 before the I 91 interchange. Found this totally CLEAN (checkout the windows, folks) bbque place randomly. We missed our breakfast due to an early morning checkout in Burlington, Vt. The wait persons are adults and committed to great service....We ordered the wonton wrapped dill pickles with "awesome sauce"---freaking awesome-- and the jalapeno poppers. These are NOT your "breaded, frozen, poppers". Fresh jalapenos stuffed with the traditional cheese mixture then wrapped in smokey bacon and flat-top grilled...with a pepper jelly like dipping sauce!!! The pulled pork sandwiches were fine in comparison.More

Loved the family-sized sampler (can't remember its exact name) that we ordered. More than enough food for 4 adults, plus a toddler. Enjoyed sitting outside at the picnic tables under cover and enjoying a draft beer along with it. Nice service. I could tell the...owner/staff/cook/whomever the nice guy was - that he's proud and happy to serve such my food!More

Why bother having a facebook page if you don't bother updating it? Went there for a birthday dinner on Sunday, July 3rd. After a 40 minute drive to get there, we were greeted at the door by the owner telling us it was take out...only. We had intended to go to Big Fatty's but their facebook page said they were short-staffed and would only be open for lunch until 4. Wicked Awesome was our second choice and because they hadn't posted anything for several days we assumed they were open for normal business. So disappointed.More

We stopped here when visiting the area even though we knew nothing about New England Barbeque. Had the Mac & cheese with pulled pork and the pulled pork sandwich. Wanted to try the mashed sweet potatoes but opted for fries instead. The pulled pork was...tasty with a good sweet and tangy sauce. Mac and cheese was really cheesy and delicious. Portions were satisfying. Service was super friendly and welcoming. Will stop back when in the area.More

I feel bad saying it but I wouldn’t not recommend this place at all. We got the pulled chicken sandwich and pulled pork sandwich. It was extremely dry, the BBQ sauce was terrible and we all had stomach issues after eating here. I would skip...this place.More

We had dinner at Wicked Awesome BBQ while staying at the Comfort Inn next door with our dog. We could just walk across the street for dinner and they have nice covered outdoor seating. My wife and I both had barbecue sandwiches for dinner and...they were very good. We also had the jalepeno poppers for an appetizer - they were excellent. I don't think poppers have ever made me cry before but they were really spicy! Very friendly staff took care of us and were nice to Alex. I would definitely eat here again if visiting the area.More

Small but charming, this was some of the best ribs I have ever had. We came from WI on our way to Maine for our honeymoon and got into town after the dinner hour. Reviews looked good so we decided to stop. DELICIOUS ribs and...pulled pork! Ribs were so tender they fell off the bone. The wait staff and the owner were SO attentive and helpful, it was a great experience from start to finish. HIGHLY recommend!More

Day 6 of our road trip we were looking for something different than fast food. Google maps offered up this place with HIGH ratings. Very friendly staff!! They were willing to sub out pork for chicken on the nachos for my daughter. Also subbed out...salad for fries on a meal. We all got PLENTY of food. The staff seemed thrilled to have customers back. They did not have wait staff at this time, but we were able to eat inside from to go containers. Staff came by many times to check if we needed anything. Staff also took care of cleaning up for us. Definitely worth the stop. Delicious and filling!!More

Great little BBQ joint. We had the sampler with pulled pork nachos, wings and pretzel bites. BBQ sauce was good, sweet and savory with plenty of meat. We choose the Blackberry Heat for the wings. Great sweet sauce with a slow heat that was not...overwhelming as it was made Reaper pepper. I was a little scared to try but happy I did. We also had the catfish sandwich with maple tarter sauce. Good sized portion and mild maple flavor in the sauce. The baked beans were different as they had pulled pork and other things in it. It was thick like chili and wished I could take the leftovers for later. Will be back!More
