The menu can be confusing so if you haven't been here, yet, ask how to order the sandwiches. Every time you add something, there's a charge. The menu is about 95% pork, a couple dishes of chicken and a couple sides without meat. If you are a vegetarian, you are severely limited to ordering sides like fried okra, jalapeno bites,... More

Great BBQ with some killer sides! If you like BBQ this is the place in Boston. I had the Prime Rib Brisket and it was fantastic!

This is legit BBQ. The pulled pork is some of the best I've eaten in Boston, or anywhere, period. I spent some time in Texas, so I've had my share. The pulled pork was so tender and well flavored that I didn't actually need any sauce. In addition, the sides are done right. You MUST get the salt and pepper... More

4 of us each got 2 meat + 2 side platters. Ribs and chicken were very good. House salad and slaw great. Good atmosphere and staff. Some solid beers on tap. Nothing to complain about.

A 1st for me & I would certainly go back. We had the famous biscuits which were so tasty. Then our ribs & what a treat they were. Will definitely return to try more on the menu!! Great atmosphere, very friendly staff & very busy restaurant.

Great casual BBQ close to Fenway Park. I had one of their plates which includes 2 proteins and 2 sides. I had the Brisket and the Pork Belly for my carnivore choices and the potato salad and collard greens for my sides. The servings are very generous and they better be for this place is far from cheap compared to... More

Fun spot near Fenway. Pulled pork, pulled chicken and sausage were all good. The biscuits are delicious - large, flaky, buttery served with honey butter. Awesome. Fun drink menu.

We came across this restaurant on the way to Fenway Park. The atmosphere is that of a big open warehouse being very relaxing and casual. The biscuits were amazingly huge, delicious and buttery. They had a good selection of beer at the bar. The pork was very good and moist with bbq sauces available to suit your personal tastes. The... More

The title says it all. I had pulled pork, collards, coleslaw -really good. My husband had ribs, sausage, and butterscotch pudding, which he enjoyed. The most amazing things were the biscuits and butter. A definite must-have! Would definitely go again.
