We make a trip here every year during our stay at SugarBush. They have a simple menu with ribs, chicken and Tex-mex entrees. There's a bar if you want a place to hang out. I remember some pool tables from past trips. They get real...More

Great food for all our out of town family and friends who came to VT for my daughter and new son-in-laws wedding. We had the after after party at the smokehouse from 11-1 pm. Quite the spread after the wedding and bonfire. Delicious!

Very friendly staff. Good srvice. Good beer. Got the ribs...way too dry. But the sides were great (mashed taters with garlic and black bean salad). My wife got the pulled pork and liked it a lot.

I had the pulled pork sandwich and the beer made by the owner. Both were delicious. Great service even when it got very crowded with large groups. Billiards tables and other entertainment. I really liked the atmosphere here and was very comfortable with my seat...More

Stopped in here with the family for dinner, and the BBQ was awesome. Staff was very friendly, and service was excellent. You know a place is good when you see a black smoker outside cooking all day long. Hats off the Localfolk, well done!
