Located right off of Route 91 in Brattleboro, VT, is Brattleboro Village Pizza. Nothing says New England small town pizza like greek pizza in a family run restaurant that hasn’t had the interior design updated in a decade or so. If you’re in the area, definitely stop here to fulfill your pizza needs.
There are a lot of things I like about Brattleboro Village Pizza. The most important of course is the pizza. Their sauce is sweet and herby, and covered by copious amounts of gooey cheese that’s browned perfectly on top. The pepperonis are under the cheese which lets the greasy goodness just get trapped instead of turning into pools on top of the pizza. Need something to drink? They also serve beer and wine, and let me tell you from personal experience, the prices are cheap and the pours are heavy.
As far as the sit-down experience goes, it’s no-frills and goes perfectly with the pizza. The decor isn’t the most recently updated, and it’s simple. No gimmicks or trends here – the most creativity comes from the hand-drawn signs around the restaurant. You order at a counter, choose a booth to sit in, and wait for your pizza to be ready so that you can pick it up at the counter. When you’re done eating, you clear your table yourself.
Brattleboro Village Pizza also does sandwiches, which my boyfriend enjoys. This is his actual hometown pizza place that he’s been going to since he was a kid, and according to him, the only bummer is that they got rid of the arcade games and jukebox! Whether you’re from the area, or just passing by, I highly reccomend this pizza.
