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!

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
