Kelli's Grill, Waterbury VT

Morganna | Apr 3, 200910:28 AM     5

I wanted a sandwich for lunch, instead of sushi today (odd that). I'd been meaning to stop in Kelli's grill for a while, so finally decided to do so today. I got a six inch egg salad (she makes it herself), and a big container of the corn chowder (it looked so good I couldn't not get it) and a bag of Vermont Oyster Crackers, for $6.81 total. It's all freshly made and really tasty. I was pleasantly surprised. The corn chowder is surprisingly light for all it has huge bits of bacon and potato. It has a more delicate flavour, it's not overwhelmingly bacony or anything. Could probably stand a bit more onion in it for my taste, but nothing wrong with it at all. She sold me on the egg salad when she said "I put some honey mustard in it". :) It's fresh, tasty, and the sandwich is well-filled for $3.25. All in all WAY better than anything you'd get at the Subway across the road.

She was really nice, greeted me warmly when I came in and made me feel very comfortable, even though I didn't know what I wanted right away. I didn't feel rushed, and it was just a nice cosy little spot.

It's located in the gas station across from the Aubuchon and Subway "strip mall" on south Main street. But they do actually have some seating inside, as well as a window in the back so you can eat in your car just as easily. Apparently they have creemees, as well (of course, how could they not?).

I'll definitely be going back. :)
