Whilst Gunnar's advertises itself as a pizza joint, the menu in fact runs to 3 close-packed pages with a range of sandwiches, subs, pasta dishes and excellent chicken wings, the latter coming with a choice of about 6 home-made sauces.

For the full menu see pics 2 and 3.

Parking in front of a sign saying: This space reserved for hunters, trespassers will be shot!", our arrival literally doubled the number of customers on a quiet, snow-showery lunchtime. The restaurant itself is cosy, with a few modern touches and immaculately clean, as are the restrooms, and the service (perhaps by Gunnar himself?) welcoming and helpful.

Favorite Dish: The above mentioned wings, at $6.95 for 10, were succulent and obviously freshly made, smothered in the medium hot sauce, which was just on the right side of "medium hot" with a delicious tang.

Followed by a "Gyro Pitta" for myself - that'll be a Donner Kebab in English - plenty of subtly spiced, not too greasy, lamb with salad and a yoghurt dressing and a BLT Sub for Katherine and washed down by a couple of bottles of "Fat Tire", the total bill was less than $30.

This was exactly what we wanted for a road-trip lunch, good tasty substantial food, pleasant environment and no-rush service, Spot-on!

Though we didn't have the pizza, the table next us did, and that looked pretty good too!

      This is why I love VT - when people drop into these little pages which I haven't thought about for ages and so when I reread them I can relive the trip - TX for that Gilly :-)
