Re: “Esperanza Restaurante

We had such esperanza for this place. Stopped in on Saturday night around 8:30 and were encouraged to find the newly opened place hopping. It is a pleasant, casual atmosphere. And we were excited about experimenting with new (to us) flavors of Salvadoran and Filipino cuisine. But sadly the food was bland and indistinguishable from the bad tex-mex that seems to consistently disappoint us in the area. I couldn't taste anything in my fish tacos, nor could my husband in his tamales without loading them up with hot sauce, and then they tasted, predictably, like hot sauce. I hope this is just opening week bugs to be worked out, but we were disappointed enough that we might not try again. Service was attentive and well informed.

Re: “The Guilty Plate Diner

It is a great place, great service. too bad a couple of whiners posted here. One apparently can not read as their policy is clearly posted, seated after all in the party arrives.
Been there so many times but can not read. Apparently not many other diners either as it is common in many diners unless seated at the Hey beatnik, not the sharpest knife eh, to update the staff that the rest of your party may not make it and get seated. .

Our second reviewer, Gerryyy is a big traveler and spender worried about using gas to drive to mallets bay. Not only that but a Ramsey want-a-be and sound engineer too. Wow...putting onions on the home fries, yup...sure you did not touch anything on your plate for 10 mins. Perhaps this is your scam to save money. You got up and walked out probably without paying and I am sure without a tip. Got to further try to insult her by describing her as stout. Guess you have not looked in the mirror lately. Save your gas money and don''t drive out to malletts bay. We locals will keep it for ourselves. And by the way, Chef Ramsey said you are a "wanker".

Re: “King's Corner Deli

unassuming, friendly people making hearty delicious affordable sandwiches. Get the Holy Mole breakfast sandwich or the Fresh Italian and you'll know what I mean. Call it in and get to work!

Re: “Hubbard's Country Store

Delicious home-baked goods and custom-made sandwiches offered in an open, country-lovely atmosphere by caring, friendly owners Jon and Sara Deering. Highly recommended. In addition, you'll find lots of food items that you need or decide on-the-spot that you need. A fun experience. Try it, you'll love it!

Re: “Brickwork Art Studios

The address "266 South Champlain Street" is misleading because the building can only be accessed from the Pine Street side! Make sure you park behind Tapna Yoga and Vermont Art Supply to access Brickwork Studios from Pine Street. I usually send people to 277 Pine Street.

There is no excitement anywhere like a First Baptist Church chicken pie supper. Come prepared for thrills and laughs.

Re: “Treewild

Great for all ages!! This event incorporates the mystical and the real. Music playing from fields and interspersed through a wooded path, dancers on cliffs, poetry read from the trees and faerie houses that can be repaired/built and imagined are just a few things that you can expect on this 1-1.5 hour adventure. Don't worry, you will have a guide to help tell the story and lead you through a variety of ecosystems that add to the feeling that you are straddling two worlds- the "common" and the "unseen". A lot of bang for your buck! Snack, drink, and a little something extra are all included in the ticket price... a really enjoyable way to spend a fall afternoon in Vermont.

Re: “Piecemeal Pies

For the First Friday opening, the curried lamb pie was great! (But there was precious little lamb in it.) Oh, well, it was opening night, I'll try again.

Re: “Hoagie Hut

I love this place. Its dingy, the staff is rude, the food is cheap, the portions are giant and they cater to locals. Its a classic old school sandwich shop offering no apologies to the more sensitive members of society. They make the best Philly cheesesteak in the state hands down. Its easily big enough to fill two grown adults and it cost less then ten bucks. I recommend this place to everyone I get a chance to, but the location and outside athstetic scares most of them off.

Good food and friendly staff. We sat next to the beautiful fireplace and enjoyed ourselves very much.

Re: “Pork & Pickles BBQ

Really yummy and a nice retreat from Burlington. We've already been twice. Loved the brisket, pickle plate and the potato salad is just so good! We will be back soon!
