Bluebird Barbecue

Burlington's barbecue spot

Save to my Account

Set on Riverside Ave between Burlington and Winooski, Bluebird Barbecue offers some of the best barbecue around, away from the summer crowds on Church Street.  They boast all-natural meat, slow-smoked on the premises 7 days a week (as your nose can attest to if you go for a walk along Riverside during smoking times).  Come hungry, as their dishes are usually enough for two. You can’t go wrong with the Carolina-style slow roasted pork butt or their 15-hour brisket.  Bluebird is very family-friendly — kids under 12 eat free on Sunday, and the kids’ menu offers staples like mac and cheese and pulled pork sliders.

For adults they have a great offering of Vermont-heavy craft brews. The selection which usually includes several of the much-sought-after Hill Farmstead beers – and some tasty cocktails.  On nice days try to get a seat on the back patio, overlooking the Winooski River.
