In a neighborhood grocery, there is a phenomenal burger grill, hidden inside The Shopping Bag. A great place to find a huge, delicious, artisan burger for under $10. No seating, just order, grab and go. Make sure you grab napkins. You are gonna need 'em.

From the outside this place doesn't look like your typical burger joint but don't let that fool you. We ordered two sizzlers with everything on it and a small french fry. Everything on the burger was fresh and went well together. People were really friendly...More

They recently switched from hand-cut fries to frozen fries, so they are not as good as they used to be. But their burgers are amazing!! They taste great, big portions, and affordable. I recommend the "Bad Andy". The place can get really busy, and there's...More

Asked for medium-rare and got a well done sizzler. It was still tasty, but If I'm paying $6.00 for a Burger, I want it done rite. The guy cooking wasn't even that busy. I ordered a large fry which was $4.00. Good fries but not...More

Get the sizzler burger, possibly the best burger in Chittenden County. Located on the sketchiest corner in the old north end. People are loud and harmless. Watch the show on the street as your burger is cooked, find a place to park and chow down.

This little grocery store was named to have the Best Burger in Vermont. It's true. We had the "The Sizzler" half a pound of meat & three types of cheese, bacon etc. It's greasy & so tasty, I could not eat the whole burger in...More

We decided to try after reading other reviews. The burgers were gigantic. I had the cowboy which had onion rings and BBQ sauce. Forget what the other one read called but it was a basic bacon cheese burger. We loved both of them.
