Good BBQ with a nice smoked flavor. Reasonable prices. The owner is a very nice lady which we really enjoyed visiting with. This is not an indoor restaurant.

This is not BBQ. It is reheated food with heavily mopped on sauce. Everything tastes the same. BBQ should have smoke rings on the ribs, these had been around so long, everything was one color and flavor. Too bad.

We happened upon Sista's driving through town and embraced it as a nice lunch option. We ordered both chicken and pork sandwiches, and both were delicious. The sauce was unique, non generic, and had a nice combination of sweet and smoky. The meat was of good quality and cooked to perfection, not dried out or charred. We'll definitely be back!

I spent over $400 for a 30-person military retirement celebration. Inclusively, I ordered pulled pork, chicken, bbq beans, coleslaw, potato salad and rolls. As you will read, this review does not reflect positively on the establishment. Please recognize that I have no desire to exaggerate and these descriptions are accurate. The pulled pork and BBQ beans were burned on top... More

As we drive through the South we love to try different BBQ joints. However, it is much easier to drive to Brunswick, Maine, and get the best BBQ I know of -- tastes to me like the Georgia Pig's, but without the smoke-filled lodge. The owners are terrific, and the prices are low. Recently we got a dinner for 6... More

Most of us northerners don't really know much about BBQ and who would think that a little take out and catering place in Brunswick, Maine would give us an appreciation for what those folks in other parts of the country have turned to art. I'm becoming a regular at this place. Sista's BBQ is amazing, mostly because of how Alabama... More

This is basically a drive-thru. A gaudy yellow Drive-Thru. Big sign out front that says: Sistas BBQ Go ahead and drive in. The menu is pretty basic, which is what I like in a BBQ joint. By-the-way, the best Barbecue I've ever had was in West Texas at a drive-in just like this one. The second best was in a... More

My son tipped me off about Sistas. It's a drive-thru BBQ place, which is admittedly odd, but it suited our needs perfectly the evening we stopped in, about a week after he and some friends had eaten there. I can't remember the name of the meals we ordered but as I recall we both ordered a sort of sampler, and... More

Returning from a day mid-coast, I happened upon Sistas BBQ in Brunswick, near the John Deere and Ford dealerships. They had a lunch special "Brunswick Stew" and for $6 with a bottled water, I was on my way. Local press indicated this to be a new (Fall 2011) venture. If I lived closer, they'd be feeding me a few times... More
