Anyone who thinks that in order to get a great meal you have to go to a fancy restaurant clearly hasn’t been to one of these roadside restaurants in VT. That’s right, these great places are not only affordable and delicious, they are unbelievably convenient since you only have to pull over and order. Many of these places are seasonal, so you’ll want to make sure to stop by this summer!
1. Two Neanderthals Smokin' BBQ - 361 River Street, Springfield
Simply put, this is the best pulled pork and brisket sandwich you'll ever eat. Here you'll find two hardworking guys (not Neanderthals) who make delicious food that they obviously take great pride in.
2. Erdimea’s - 1888 US Rte 5 N, Windsor
You'll find Erdimae's in the side lot of Brown's gas station, next to the junkyard. Not the spot you'd think of for great food, but take the time to stop if you're driving by. The grilled cheese and tomato sandwich is so good you'll be telling all your friends about this little roadside gem.
3. Caja Madera - 154 Rte 15 W, Hardwick
The tacos here are as good as they look, and you won't want to miss them before they move, or rather drive, away after the season!
