We all had their breakfast sandwich which was good. They were unable to make a simple change to put the eggs on the side. Didn't go back for the burgers.

Passing through Stowe Vermont, we had to stop here because of the name. We ordered the grilled chicken BLT which was good. We had onion rings which were a little too done. All in all it was good at a price of about $18 that...More

We stopped in for lunch, and had their hamburgers. They were absolutely delicious! This place is reasonably priced, service is good, and the place is clean.

We came for burgers. Portobello was the vegetarian option. Order at counter-food delivered. Indoor/Outdoor seating available. Casual fun place. Fries and onion rings were very good and so was my portobello burger - looked and tasted fresh!

If you have about an hour to eat lunch I would recommend the Blue Donkey. They have a good selection of burgers and other lunch items. We had burgers and enjoyed them.

Had an interesting hamburger here for dinner. Not a fancy place and the atmosphere is lacking, but they do have dogs and burgers and the prices are reasonable.

This was the perfect spot at the end of the weekend, order your burger or BBQ at the counter and find a seat indoors or out. The diet can start tmrw, good way to end the weekend and they have Heady Topper too.

We each had a different burger or different cheeses on them. I had a Blue Donkey Classic with cheddar. They come with fries, but I paid extra for onion rings. Small but nice beer and cider choices.

I have never been there outside of ski season, nor for dinner. I would be surprised however if you needed reservations and surprised if they even took them. It's more of a fast food type place. Order at the counter grab a... More
