Lester's is close by and we enjoy coming here every now and then. Their brisket and ribs are good. Chicken is a bit dry. Several types of BBQ sauces available on the side.
Had party there and service, food, and atmosphere was great.Brisket was more tender than high end steakhouse. Ribs and sides delicious.
I've had some good luck here at times, but it definitely can be inconsistent in terms of the quality of food. Probably has something to do with the time I've ordered.

The downside are the side dishes (with the... More

I've been to Lester's quite a few times. BBQ is good by New England standards. Affordable with cold beer and specials. I've never been disappointed.
though we were just this after reading some of the lukewarm reviews on these very pages, and then even more so after pulling up at seven pm on a Saturday evening and finding the place nearly empty.
