Out for BBQ night

Went with a friend for a night out and to try some barbeque food at Firebox in Bedford, MA. last evening. When we got there at 5:45 we had our choice of seating. It's small & cozy with seating for around 30-40. We got there just ahead of the crowd. Fifteen minutes after sitting the place was... read more

Was there on a Saturday night and the place was rather empty. Had eaten before and the food was good. This time nothing seemed up to their previous standards. Smoked wings were flabby liked they had not been on the smoker enough, the rice seasoning was way off. Hope this was an off night.

Firebox BBQ in Bedford is a nice local place with pretty decent BBQ. I would not say their BBQ rivals that of Austin or St. Louis, but for Massachusetts this is good solid “cue. They have very tender brisket and pulled pork. You can get either lunch or dinner platters or sandwiches. They have a good selection of beers, and... More

Had pulled pork sandwich with side of Mac and cheese. Not good, lacking flavor, extremely small portions. Drive a little further to Blue Ribbon, although no bar available there.

The usual stuff: pulled pork, ribs, steak tips, with several different sauces and sides. They've recently added seafood (shrimp, catfish, etc.), but I haven't tried any of these dishes.

This is a small friendly place. Some items are really good and some just average. The buffalo wings are probably the best I have ever had. The bar usually has a game on and there are several beers on tap to choose from. It's a nice, casual place to grab takeout or grab a quick meal.

Foods great. Bartender however has a horrible attitude. Sitting here eating and she's texting talking to other people not acknowledging us. 20 minutes our food isn't even rung in. I would come back for food but not when she's serving.

They have Mac & Cheese and Collard Greens & Cornbread on their menu - in Bedford, Mass! The ribs were lip smackin' good. I taste tested the chopped yardbird and the chopped pork and they were good too. The Sauce had a sweetness to it I couldn't place - so I just placed it in my mouth over and over!... More

Not only do I eat there - but I've had them cater events more than three times. The food is always delicious - and the owners are very nice to work with. I recommend them highly!
