Friendly BBQ

The staff is really friendly and helpful. We were a large group and they put together a table for all of us. Did separate checks too. BBQ is very good although the jamaican chicken was a bit overdone. Beer and drink selection is good.

This restaurant has the best BBQ I have ever tasted outside of the Deep South! The menu is extensive and the sauces are extremely flavorful and tasty! The brisket is so tender until you can cut it with a spoon! The baby back ribs have plenty of meat on them and the pulled pork is cooked just right. For first... More

Holy cow was this place awesome! Lots of beers on tap, bone licking ribs, live music, and pool tables. What more could you ask for. Seriously though, the best beef brisket and ribs I have ever had. And the owner actually checked on us too. Extra bonus: free valet parking. If you live in the Boston area, this is a... More

We took 3 generations to eat on a Saturday night. The children were 3 and1. The band walked by to set up for the evening. The kids were invited to play the drums before they started. The ribs and sandwiches were great. What an adventure!

My son travels all over the US for hockey and we love when he has tournaments in MA because that means we get to have the best BBQ outside of Texas. We love everything especially the yard bird with great sides like mac and cheese and cornbread. Several different bbq sauces all very good.Nice atmosphere,reasonable prices and decent waitstaff. Love... More

This was my first visit to Firefly's. I started to look at the menu and at first I thought maybe I picked the wrong place .... I was worried about allergies. I knew that the food was centered around BBQ but spicy foods and hot peppers can be a problem for me. Well when I mentioned to the waitress Natalyn... More

Someone changed the operations of this place. We had stopped going after a couple bad Sunday brunch experiences. Cold food, limited variety and empty dishes. A new brunch has arrived !!! And it's worth a trip. Variety from breakfast items to classic southern BBQ and many desserts. Everything kept fresh and full, tables clean, dining room clean...and everyone from host... More

My husband and I are big BBQ fans. I usually get ribs whenever I can. I can say without a doubt that the ribs at Firefly's in Marlborough MA are the best I have eaten. They had the right amount of seasoning and smoke. Fall off the bone goodness. My husband had a very good brisket sandwich with homemade chips... More
