Based on the reviews we were expecting it to be a bit better than it was. The food wasn't bad, it just wasn't any better than average. I will say that the burnt ends were very good, but the chicken was very dry. We liked the bbq sauce and the staff was friendly, we just were hoping for a bit... More

We found this place on Trip Advisor and could not be happier. If you are in the Groton area take the time to look for Chester's Barbecue. It's hidden in the corner of a strip mall, not the place you would think to look for barbecue but it's worth the trip. The guys behind the counter are more than willing... More

I have been a customer of this establishment for years, including catering. The food is great - everybody knows that. But this place goes beyond that.

Come here every time we visit family. Best tasting BBQ corned beef ever. Family-friendly place. Be sure to eat the cornbread and take some home. Better than dessert

We were out riding and the pizza place we wanted to go for lunch, was gone! It's been a while since we went to that pizza place, so I went on TripAdvisor to see what the people said was good in Groton. It had this place as the Number 2 place in that area. We had lunch and my wife... More
