My family goes to Vermont a few times a year, and we always stop by this place. It's great every time, and their brisket is the best I've ever tried. I'm a vegetarian these days, but I still pick up the brisket for my family, and I love the beans. The service is also very friendly, and you won't want... More

I ordered PULLED PORK, NOT SLICED PORK! Awful!!!! Dirty little place, had second thoughts when I walked into the " store" AFTER walking in between 3 people smoking right in front of the door. Ordered pulled pork, the lady says just put this in the microwave for 4 minutes when you get home, I did, then opened it, SLICED pork... More

Stopped here on our way home, my husband ordered the brisket with a side of coleslaw. He loved it. The sides come a la cart. They also make sandwiches with their barbecue and fresh cold cuts. They have soft serve ice cream, and maple cremees. Highly recommend this place. They also have maple items and Vermont gifts/souvenirs. They have bar... More

We stopped in the Route 4 Country Store hoping to pick up a couple of deli sandwiches. We ended up getting some of their delicious pulled pork and ham sandwiches, as well as some delicious homemade side items, bottled soft drinks, and a couple of whoopie pies. It made for a great meal for two for under $30 (plus we... More

The bbq brisket sandwiches and bbq sauce were excellent! The service was a little slow, but the woman was very friendly and the sandwiches were worth the wait.

Stopped in for some sandwiches - Pulled Pork!! The sandwiches were very tasty... the service was very friendly! If in the area and hungry for a good sandwich don't hesitate to stop, I don't think you would be disappointed! Support the local independent business folks :)

Stopped here on our way back to Boston from Killington Vermont area. It is a very small, cramped country store with lots of local products (maple syrup , local wines, and other local products). But the TRUE reason to stop is for the barbeque sandwiches . The brisket is really good with pickles and coleslaw. Sandwiches come in 3 sizes:... More

This place is great. We got 3 delicious sandwiches (brisket, BLT, pulled pork) and Margie was delightful. Food was fantastic, she was incredibly accommodating, and even gave a complimentary pig ear once she heard I had a dog. A great spot.

the BBQ was ok, super fatty and greasy, but not awful. the beverage racks were more than half empty and there was more display space devoted to ... lets call it "the 420 lifestyle" ... than there was to actual BBQ. there was a nice selection of local products and snack foods, but not much in the way of "general...
