Visited the tuckerbox with my spouse and mother in law. The food was nothing to write home about. My chicken gyro was made of small chicken chunks and had limited chicken. The falafel sandwich was overdone and could use some reworking. The place was busy and we had to flag down waitress if we needed something. Nice building interior.

This Turkish/Mediterranean fare was incredible! The fig martini was a big hit for drinks, and we had the stuffed eggplant (one with lamb, and one vegetarian) and the Lamb Güveç. Definitely a return trip!

Not the kind of place you expect to find in a small Vermont town but we had a great impromptu lunch here on a drive back to Boston for Burlington. Real deal Turkish food in a trendy, airy restaurant. Service was good and prices fair but star of the show was the food. The hot lavalash bread - the mezze... More

I have eaten at the Tuckerbox three or four times for lunch and once for dinner over the last few years they have been in business. Each time I want to like the place. I want it to work for me. But it is consistently disappointing and I think I have had my last meal there. I suspect that if... More

We have eaten here numerous times. The kabobs are fantastic and the restaurant has a good selection of Turkish wines and unique desserts. Will continue to come here for a delicious meal.

First of all, I am a Turk. Went for lunch, ordered doner. Got served reheated meat on a bun with a spoon of watery sauce. This is not what Turkish food is known for.

My father is Turkish and I've spent a lot of time in Turkey and have to say that this is truly fantastic Turkish food! They perfectly capture the Mediterranean flavors; better than a lot of restaurants in Istanbul! Great service as well! Highly recommend it!

What a surprise to find this gem in downtown WRJ. Funky ambiance, good service, and great food. Moderately priced, but worth every penny. We got the mixed grill and were very happy with that. Even the hummus was noteworthy and I'm not comfortable waxing poetically about mashed beans. Definitely worth trying and they have a reasonably good selection of libations.

Not too many places for a vegetarian to eat along the interstates in New England. This Turkish/Middle Eastern cafe has a nice slightly funky collegegiate vibe, with enough variety to make it more than a one-time stop. Zucchini fritters, "yesterday's soup" (which always seems to be red lentil), falafel (also available as a sandwich) have all been fresh and made-from-scratch... More
