I love eating in Montpelier. You almost can't go wrong but The Mad Taco is by far my favorite food. Simple atmosphere and fabulous food. Vermont beer, too. Eat here and you will be happy.

Want as close to authentic as you can get, go here. Tacos without tomatoes, sour cream, lettuce, cheese- just honest and good food with the right stuff in it. Great drinks, great atmosphere and all for a great price.

I love this place. Nothing fancy, just really fresh, really good food. Guac and chips made to order is orgasmic. Awesome beer choices to wash it down as well.
