Any 2007 reports for Bove's and Beansie's Bus in Burlington, VT?

I'm planning to stop in Burlington this week on my way to food heaven, a.k.a. Montreal, and I thought I'd check out some of childhood faves, Bove's and Beansie's Bus.

I was looking at the Beansie's site and noticed that it is under new ownership (1989) since my last trip. I guess I'm hoping that there's someone out there who fancied early 1980's Beansie's Michigan dogs and fries who can tell me if they are still as good.

I also loved the meatballs at Bove's when I was a kid. It was such a treat when my dad brought take out home. I'm aware that I can do mail order, and I see the sauce in specialty stores, but I'd still like to pick up some take out on my way back to Boston.

Any recent feedback on either spot is most appreciated.

    While I moved to Burlington in the mid 90's, I've been going to Beansie's now for the past ten years or so. The food has been consistently AWESOME. It's become a little pricer, but still amazing.

      Great news! I can't wait to get there. I have been dreaming about the dog and fries for months now. ;)

        Hey KC,

        Did you make it to Beansie's? What did you think?
