As I have been aware for a little while now, but it has officially been announced at this point, Archie's Grill on Shelburne Rd. will be closing its doors on July 18th. This saddens me as it is a staple for my friends and I when out on our motorcycles through the season. Al's, Five Guys, and all the fast food joints around had nothing on this fabulous little burger joint as the owner, Dick Hess put his heart into everything that you saw on the menu. Although the establishment was successful, an unfortunate health issue forced Mr. Hess to make the tough decision to close the doors and spend more time with family...can't blame him for that though.
There will be so much that I miss, whether it be the great atmosphere, enlightening conversation with Mr. Hess as he was always willing to chat, or the epic menu choices. I would highly recommend stopping in over the next few weeks to 4109 Shelburne Rd. and enjoy a meal prior to closing. Some of my favorites are the pulled pork sandwich (honestly the best pulled pork I have ever had, and the slaw is sooooo good), the Vermont bacon and cheese burger which has a splash of maple syrup, or even the misty knoll turkey burger. So many other great things I never got a chance to try as I couldn't get away from my favorites, but believe me, I will hit it a few more times before the 18th.
