Dripping With Taste!

I'm sure it was terrible for us cause every bite was filled with fat and grease, the beef ribs were so loaded with taste, it didn't matter.

Not anywhere near the quality or taste of Blue Ribbon BBQ, but adequate. The sole decent BBQ in the Foxboro area.

If you've ever had good bbq, this place will disappoint you. But, in a region with little to choose from, this is a welcome change from the smattering of chain restaurants. We waited a very long time for our dinner.

The portions were large and Pulled Pork was delicious. This is our go to for when we want BBQ but don't want to go to the trouble it takes to make it at home. On a nice day you can eat there at the outside tables.

Stopped by for a quick bite yesterday. The pulled pork sandwich was huge and came with a side...I chose the french fries. They were crispy and had the right amount of salt. Plenty of bbq sauce if you need to add more to the meal.

Not jazzed about the pork rIbs or brisket,but the beef ribs, french fries, and butternut squash are pretty darn good. Honestly the beef ribs may be the best I've had anywhere. And has an odd little location that is absolutely perfect for warmer weather or cold weather eating in your truck.

Since we were in the area and this place had good reviews for best Southern BBQ we decided to try it. NEVER again. The pork ribs were so overcooked we were afraid of chocking on them. The beef was tastier but had a lot of fat on them. Basically cheap meats poorly cooked with sauce poured on them. Sorry but... More

I have lived in the area for years but never stopped in until this past weekend. Glad I tried it. The pulled pork is great and the sandwich left me full. I liked that it was served dry and I could sample the different sauces. I went with potato salad as a side and it was delicious. The potbelly on... More

This is a take-out or eat in the open place. Well, they do have a few tables under a roof but that is it. What ever they lack in terms of walls, they make up by serving delicious BBQ, real delicious. Sandwiches and dinner plates on the menu. Meat centric place, obviously. Brisket, pull pork and chicken are all outstanding.... More

I pass by this understated take out place daily, and only recently started buying food there as a Texan told me it was the closest thing to Texas BBQ he had eaten since moving to New England. It resembles and old drive up restaurant and getting in and out can be a little tricky during busy driving hours, but the... More
