“Great food, but ambiance was lacking in the kitchen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

So the food was great. Not the best tacos I've ever had, but very, very good. My wife had the roasted chicken tacos and I had the chorzio. Both were great. It's a nice place; small, but cute. They had 'Warren Miller like' ski movies playing, and in Stowe Vermont in the height of ski season that's perfect! The only complaint I had really, and this might just be me showing my age, but one of the cooks was wearing those jeans that button close in such a way that half or your derriere is on display for all to see. If the kitchen were closed off from view that would be fine, but because its in plain view as you order so is this person's rear, and frankly I didn't find it pleasant.

“Best Burritos in Stowe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

Fresh made burritos with fresh ingredients. They have rotating taps including several local beers. The eat-in area is a bit small so plan your visit around non-busy times.

“Fresh!”

I had the buffalo wing burrito with blue cheese, all ingredients were fresh, crispy, and the centre was full and not runny
Great stop for quick lunch
Will return

“Just What I Wanted!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

For what I wanted...this was perfect!

I wanted an inexpensive lunch of good food, quick service at a reasonable price. Bender's did just that...and more!

While they were out of Pulled Pork...no big deal...went with Grilled Steak with Trail Fire Salsa and was pleased across the board. While enjoying a PBR...watched some extreme snowboarding on the TV. Burrito came out and mmmmm that was good!

The food was great...perfectly prepared and served!

Will return again...maybe even for lunch tomorrow!!!
