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!

This is kind of an out of the way BBQ restaurant in a small strip mall in Bedford, MA. It has gone through a couple of makeovers and now offers table service. The service was friendly and helpful, but the food is lacking. The brisket was very dry; the ribs were not very tender or meaty. For less money there... More

Love the aroma as you enter thru the door. Very nice friendly staff, nearly every time I go the owner stops by to chat. Love the margaritas. Very very excellent smoked and bbq'd meat. I wish I had a bigger stomach so I could order more food. Because the streets close up at 7:30 PM in town, I understand why... More

Well, possibly best in the Boston area. Nice choices despite clever daily "specials" that tend to stretch a bit. Pork plat and sandwiches are great and the collard greens....well,this ain't the South y'all! But passable and will prevent disease and maybe even scurvy.

Great funky place with an extensive menu and very friendly service. The teriyaki wings were so crispy and non-greasy - I have been dreaming of them ever since. My husband had the ribs and he really enjoyed them. We'll be returning for Cinco de Mayo and a very cool looking special menu that whole week!

A local favorite. Firebox is a small restaurant located in a strip mall. It has a nice variety of meats and fish/seafood offerings. We usually get the BBQ dinner plate - A generous “one meat” dinner BBQ plate is under $10. That includes two sides and as well as the best cornbread I have ever had. Family friendly – and... More

An example of bringing the better to an arrogant dining locale. Hey, it ain't all scrod and baked beans! Lobster, well OK! But the Ivy Leagers and academic eletists need smoked meats to clear their minds. If not their atteries! FIREBOX is great! Take out, dine-in or let 'em cater your events: see what happened with the World Series games... More

This was my first visit just hoping for decent BBQ and ended up with a terrific meal. Firebox is a very small restaurant with full service and full bar. As soon as you enter, you will be overcome by the incredible aroma of BBQ. I got the 2 meat platter; jerk pork and beef brisket. The pork was good, but... More

Had a take out BBQ combo for 8. They have a nice range of the usual BBQ offerings and sides. The ribs were good, the brisket very good, and the chicken was very smokey but a little on the dry side - made good use of their BBQ sauce with it. The corn bread was superb! very tender and tasty.... More

Have to say when we first went to the Firebox right after they opened, it was pretty average. Since they redid the interior and added the bar, the atmosphere and food have improved greatly. Their ribs are the best in the area-moist, tasty and pretty much fall off the bone. Their fried sweet potatoes are the best I've ever tasted,... More
