Sadly no dine-in due to COVID restrictions. This is was my very first order and very first time trying their food. We got the meal for two people and everything was delicious! Prices were reasonable and food was ready on time. Their brisket is great 😋
This place is wonderful. But what I really must applaud is the staff! Every person smiled and greeted my friend and I, the food was served in a timely manner and delicious 👏🏾 I was pleasantly surprised that there was a decent selection for vegetarian food. I would recommend visiting if you are in the Winooksi area, Bluebird does things right!
DAMN GOOD BBQ, drinks, and people. The whole reason we ate here was I was taking pictures of a home (I am a real estate photographer) in Burlington and I drove by. The smell of their bbq as I passed by caught my attention. If you can't smell the bbq before you get to a bbq joint it ain't worth stopping in. We tried the ribs and the brisket. The ribs were perfectly delicious. BUT oh lordy was the brisket good - and thank god they did not trim off any of the fat. My only complaint was the collards (which were delicious). I used to live in Georgia and they always cooked collards with country ham. By country ham, I am talking the Southern kind that has it's own particular flavor. I wished a piece of ham would have been in the cup with the rest of the collard liquor. Bluebird is so good I would eat there right now if they were open.
So it’s a near to post Covid experience here in Burlington VT. The indoor seating remains closed for the patrons safety but the brand new outside enclosed patio is open. It’s a different kind of ordering experience… You’re given a menu and reminded what table you’re seated at. You then go up to the window and place your order at the touchscreen Kiosk. Drinks are given to you the window to the left and the food is brought out to you. All the staff are wearing masks and are extra attentive to the guests. The menu is not the full old BBQ menu but the current pick up one. That doesn’t mean it’s sparse, more that it’s lean and mean. I purchased the pulled pork sandwich sans B&B pickles and the Chopped Brisket Poutine. I asked for a bit of extra sauce for the pulled pork because it looked dry (I was wrong). The tangy mustard sauce was a perfect addition to meat and bun. The Poutine was fantastic (I wanted fries and more BBQ - the gravy and cheese were a nice bonus). I’m a sauce on his BBQ kinda guy and even though I asked for extra, it really wasn’t needed. I’ll also mention I’m not the kind of person to grab the salt or pepper shaker before the first bite, but I’ve found that foods have been rather bland these days. This is not the case here. I didn’t need anything extra to add to the food’s flavor. Nice Job Bluebird BBQ
Yummy! I liked the 1950s music: Buddy Holly, Hank Williams Jr., Danny and the Juniors, &c. For some reason the mashed potatoes were the best part of our party's meal...? Unexpected. Mediocre collard greens. Can't win 'em all. *shrug* Pleasant staff; we were thanked for visiting by like five separate employees on the way out.
