This Longstanding 44-Year-Old Vermont Restaurant Has The Most Enormous Ribs You’ve Ever Seen
Killington, Vermont is known for its fabulous skiing, hiking, and other recreational activities. After a busy day in the great outdoors, you’re going to be hungry…
really hungry. A feast of the most enormous ribs you’ve ever seen is waiting for you at The Back Behind Saloon Restaurant.
The Back Behind Saloon Restaurant was opened in 1974 and at the time was not visible from any roadway. The building was constructed in the early 1900s and later renovated into the cheerful eatery it is today.
Grab a seat in the bright dining room and prepare for a tasty and satisfying meal. Check out the colorful jukebox in the corner that's an authentic 1946 post war model 1015 from Wurlitzer Music Machine Company.
While you'll find steaks, seafood, and salads on the menu, what the Back Behind Saloon Restaurant is really famous for is their tender smoked BBQ.
Meats are slow smoked then roasted to bring the absolute best flavors to the plate. If you love BBQ, you'll be in absolute heaven at this eatery.
The ribs are so huge, that even the hungriest of diners will have a hard time finishing the entire plate. Grab some napkins, this is going to be messy, but oh-so good.
Another tasty option is the pulled pork sandwich which just spills out of the bun. All of the yummy sauces are homemade right in the restaurant.
If you are a bottomless pit, then choose the combo platter full of BBQ goodness. Featuring a half rack of Baby Back and half rack of St. Louis ribs, this will surely satisfy.
Enjoy a craft beer or cocktail from the bar with your meal. The stained glass bar back was rescued from an old ice cream soda fountain shop.
If you aren't keen on the tang of BBQ but you still love meat, try one of the juicy steaks along with some downhome sides.
Pasta and seafood also has its place on the menu giving lighter options for diners.
The next time you're in Killington hitting the trails or the slopes, stop at the Back Behind Saloon Restaurant for a hearty meal.
