If you could pick one late-night food…

If you could pick one late-night food option to eat for the rest of eternity, what would it be? Shot in the dark: It wouldn’t be from Burger King.

Having a hard time making a decision? Think back to your neighborhood pizza-by-the-slice joint, the one that made you the connoisseur of drunk food you are today. How foldable the crust, how deliciously salty the sauce and cheese, how portable the package!

What about the cornerstone of Americana, the late-night greasy spoon diner? Home fries, sizzling bacon, and eggs over easy sound about right…and bottomless cups of coffee to keep the party going until dawn.

For me, the choice was easy. I picked the “Rise and Shiner,” the beloved best-selling menu item from Vermont’s own Kountry Kart Deli. While they lose respect for needlessly misspelling their business name, they earn it back (and then some) every time I order this late-night menu marvel. Picture this: a soft 12” white sub roll stacked with sausage patties, hash browns, fried eggs and melted cheese. The taste combination is incredible, but the benefits don’t stop there – eat the first half at 3 a.m., and save the rest for tomorrow morning! Now that’s a great way to stretch your dollar a little farther.

    Kountry Kart Deli would be PACKED after the bars closed. They made sooo much money by staying open after last call. People would wait in long lines too. Same with the french fry line at Nectar’s. It was probably their busiest time of day!
