“Best Philly Cheese Around”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

It you are looking for a Philly Cheese Steak and you are anywhere near the Paisley Hippo, you got to go. I always get the traditional with hot peppers. It is great. They have a full menu with a lot of other items, but I can say much about the rest. Call a head and your stuff will be ready when you get there. I love it.

“Amazing Subs & Snacks”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

The hippo combines a casual atmosphere with delightful combinations of delicious ingredients. The Paisley Hippo offers new twists on old favorites. Several variations of Cheesesteak and many other delicious offerings. Some tasty appetizers (macaroni & cheese bites among them) round out the menu. Stop by for a great lunch!

“The Hippo Hits It!”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Okay, so you want a super fresh, inventive sandwich that uses the freshest, very best meats and veggies you can get? Well, look no further than the Paisley Hippo. Tucked away in a small mall in Hinesburg, the folks at the Hippo know their sandwiches. As soon as you walk through the door, you are greeted by friendly staff clad in tie dye shirts that will happily craft your lunch or dinner. I have frequented the Hippo on several occasions and have NEVER been disappointed, either with the food or the service. It is as clean and pleasant a shop as any I have been in, and found no issue with cleanliness or friendliness. If I know someone is looking for a good place to eat, I would have no problem recommending the Paisley Hippo to anyone.
Their menu is diverse and interesting, with daily specials that appeal to just about every palate. Their breads are fresh and the greens are top notch. Next time you take a trip to Hinesburg, look for the Hippo. It's well worth the drive!

“Good Subs”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

The sub I purchased was excellent; however, I would have liked to see the food preparers wash their hands/wear gloves before preparing. In the time spent making my sandwich-money, phones, and pens were touched before going straight back to making the sandwich. I feel this is unsanitary. I think the staff could have been a little friendlier too!

“Best subs in Vermont”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

The bread is baked daily and the meats are great. Small shop, booth and tables for seating. They offer wraps, also, and great cheese steaks. I love the roast beef with extra provolone, personally... but my friends eat a variety and love every one! Oh... and they serve both regular and sweet potato fries. :)
