Best Ribs in Massachusetts!

Well, where to begin, it was late and were shopping in the area. My wife had been there before so BBQ sounded good to me. A little place with great BBQ food! Lots of choices but decided to try Chicken n' Memphis Ribs combo, came with 3 sides. I chose potato salad, green beans, and cucumber salad... read more

Sunday afternoon. 40 people. Ordered 40 meals (way too much), Baby back ribs - great; Pulled pork - great; brisket-very very good. Potato salad and slaw excellent. and cornbread also. They wrapped watermelon dessert in individual bags, great idea for serving and keeping fresh. Delivered on time, professional and friendly.

Massachusetts isn't known for great BBQ, but this place is. Went there for lunch and got the Blue's rib combo. I wanted to see which of their ribs were the best. I found that they are all great. I enjoyed the Memphis ribs the most, but the Baby Backs were terrific too. The BBQ beans were very good and my... More

I've had Southern soul food BBQ many times in the South, but it was a surprise to find it so far north. They have successfully imported an authentic Southern flavor to the North Shore of Boston - bravo! The collard greens and smoked wings are amazing. This is a must visit place if you're in Peabody and you're looking for... More

Stop in on my way home from work to grab some BBQ pork to take home. Had eaten here in the past and food is OK, albeit a bit overpriced. Tonight when I walked in there was a family of four eating, and they were the only ones in the restaurant. I knew what i wanted and went right to... More

Great choices. A bit pricey but overall fun atmosphere. Do not expect the staff to know lots of info on the food.

When I saw the restuarant as listed as one of the better ones in Peabody MA I had to try it, being from TN. The service was great as was the food, and lots on your plate. I can't believe I ate the whole thing. Lots of UT paraphanlia on the walls! Fun!

One of my best restaurant visits ever, period. Does not look like much when you get there but man, they know how to barbeque. Everything we had was perfect, however their selection of sodas was a bit disapointing. But the food is great and this is a must go place if you are up in Peabody, highly reccomended. Cant wait...
