This is our go-to place for barbeque in Central Mass. Enjoyed a couple of beers and barbeque on a weeknight. Sat in the bar to watch the ballgame. Bartender steered us to good choices of draft beer. I had pulled pork sandwich - he enjoyed the St. Louis Ribs with a peach barbeque sauce. Everything was just right.

Overall a good experience, the food is good but the star attraction is of course the ribs. The fish my wife ordered as a bit dry for my taste but her salad was fresh. I love the condiments bar and the assortment of BBQ sauces. The parking was just fine. They have a lunch wagon out in their parking lot... More

Enjoyed the St. Louis ribs - were nicely cooked. Sauces excellent and range from sweet to spicy to very spicy. Sides very good, especially mac & cheese.

We got take out from Firefly's, and everything was great. Good selection, although it would be nice to see more beef rib options instead of just the one beef rib dinner. The sides are great, and there are lots of choices, and my husband and brother both really liked the chicken waffle dinner.

Disclaimer: a vegetarian at a BBQ restaurant? Yes, indeedy! Firefly's has the best veggie burger hands-down in the area! And their selection of barbeque sauces is awesome - my personal favorite is the Memphis BBQ sauce but they're all good! Nice selection of beers, both on tap and in bottles plus the condiment bar with complimentary four bean salad, pepperoncini's,... More

Loved this restaurant after it first opened, however, after a couple years in they seemed to have lost their way (often a sign of over-expansion when the owners attention is focused somewhere else), after several blazingly mediocre meals we had crossed it off our restaurant go-to list. Got invited there by a friend a couple months ago and I was... More

I have been to FireFly's many times since it opened several years ago. May not be the absolute best barbecue I've ever had, it comes close. Very good job on the basics; ribs, pulled pork, chicken and brisket. Most sides are average. Cucummber salad is very good. Portions are generous. Combo platters are a great way to mix and match....

Great barbecue and side dishes. A nice variety of different barbecue sauces. Wide variety of sides. Great for takeout as well. Also has a branch in Framingham, MA. Both are great for casual dining.
