This Southern place in the north is not what you expect. Especially for someone like me who lived in Georgia and Texas and has visited many of the southern states.

We had a tasty meal but thought sides and drinks were a bit overpriced. The food was lovely, able to walk in without booking, around 8pm on Sunday evening

We had a work night out with 8 people. We wanted to be able to sit outside and enjoy the sun and a BBQ seemed like a great option Sweet Cheeks does not disappoint on the BBQ front we had a wide selection of food and side dishes. Once you have added the sauces you are in for a feast!... More

BEST biscuits on the planet - about 2" tall and served with honey butter - absolutely delicious. Followed up with the beef brisket (slightly fatty but full of flavor), coleslaw and ranch beans. Excellent meal on our way to Fenway. Basket of biscuits, iced tea, 2 high end cocktails, 2 full dinners ( 1 with 2 meat choices) and a... More

My meal was tasty but the brisket was very fatty. Sides are $6 each and the sandwich only comes with pickles and onions which I strongly dislike. Drinks don't come with refills so $7 for an ice tea with 1refill was ridiculous. I probably wouldn't go back.

A few blocks from Fenway Park. Great biscuits with honey butter, decent ribs, fair wings, poor draft beer selection. Nice patio seating if the weather is good.

This place knows what they're doing. Busy as heck before a Sox game, the staff kept their cool, the service was prompt and efficient, and the meat AND the sides were spot on. Real smoke, spoon tender pulled pork and killer Chicken Wings (fried, rubbed, not sauced or buffalo). The Black eyed peas were wonderful, the biscuits fresh, huge, with... More

Love the atmosphere of Sweet Cheeks and the different platters that you can get to sample more than one item. BEWARE- the Hot wings have ghost pepper in them (or at least they did when we were there!) With no warning, 2 people in our group took bites of their wings and basically didn't recover from the ghost pepper until... More
