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.

The set up for the Blue Donkey is a little confusing. You have to pay for your food before you sit down, which is not clearly indicated. You pick up your drink, and they bring the food to your table - so it's a bit...More

So many places to eat. Needed somewhere quick. Not bad, but nothing to write home about either. Best burgers. Not quite. The burgers were definitely better than Burger King/McDonalds.

Stowe is known for it's sophistication, but it you're out riding your bike or hiking and you want to stop for a quick bite, the Blue Donkey is a must do. They have amazing burgers AND bar-b-que, with a wide variety of homemade bar-b-que sauces....More

I was in Stowe for the 3B festival. I had a burger and beer at the Blue donkey. Both were very good.

We are two vegetarians. The veggie burger is very tasty, nice texture and doesn't fall apart. The fries are fresh, crispy and delicious. Add cleanliness and good service and you have a great dining experience.

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
