“Glad we stipped here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

This place is underrated else the others are overrated. Had the best Reubin ever, their handmade chips are the best as are all we looked plus outside seating. Prices are $ compared to the burger places.

“Huevos Rancheros Stowe-style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

After a pleasant 10 mile ride up and back on the Stowe bike path, it was about lunch time. There appear to be many good looking eateries here in Stowe. We stumbled upon McCarthy's and were treated to an excellent meal with fast and friendly service. Their gringo spin on the traditional huevos rancheros was surprisingly enjoyable. Perfectly cooked eggs covered with Vermont cheese on top of black beans and a crispy tortilla. A side of salsa and sour cream topped off the dish. Along with the huevos, you are also served tasty home fries for a full breakfast or lunch. For about $8 it completely satisfied the appetite I had worked up bike riding. On the beautiful late-August afternoon, we sat outside on their deck. It's offset just enough from Mountain Road to be both quiet and relaxing. I look forward to eating here again since many other menu items looked just as good as what I ordered today.

“Good Solid Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Have been coming to McCarthy's for many years. The food is always done exactly as stated and as ordered. Prices a little high for the portions served. Service is always excellent
