Solid Local BBQ Place

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... read 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!

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
