Biscuits for the win!

Sweet Cheeks has the most amazing, melt-in-your-mouth biscuits served with honey butter that I could literally eat for days! The pork belly and brisket was also really good. Service was good and the place has a very lovely atmosphere perfect for large groups.

I was actually surprised as you don't usually relate BBQ with Boston but this was hands down the best BBQ I've ever had. We went with friends before a game at Fenway. We had the brisket and pork belly, mac and cheese, potato salad, and a watermelon salad. The watermelon salad is summer on a plate, it's the grown up... More

When I found out I was going to Boston I knew I would have to try this place. We went the night of the Foo Fighters concert and it was super busy but we got a table with not much of a wait. Ordered the biscuits which were huge and very good. I wanted to try a little of everything... More

After an early attempt, aborted due to very unwelcoming staff (ok, just plain rude), my last 2 visits have been quite delicious. Definitely try the trays with various meats and sides for a generous sampling. Fried chicken is very fresh but feels bland. It needs more seasoning. Everything else looks and tastes first rate. Biscuits are moist and flavorful, and... More

My wife and I went here for dinner before the Red Sox game on July 7th and it didn't disappoint. It is just a few blocks south of Fenway, but it wasn't too crowded when we showed up. As soon as you walk in you are hit in the face with the smell of smoked meats (probably one of the... More

Got a last-minute reservation for Friday night dinner. Place was hopping. Our BBQ was awesome. We had biscuits and a couple of trays - one with St Louis style ribs and the other with pulled pork. For sides we had broccoli and cheese, Mac and cheese, coke slaw, and salad. Everything was delicious. Highly recommended

Went here for lunch on a very hot and humid Wednesday. Sat at the bar until our party arrived. Seated right away. The only issue that I had was that there didn't seem to be enough air conditioning in the place. The food is good, you can get various types of barbequed meats on either a tray or sandwich. The...

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. This is a communal table setting, you sit with other in the restaurant and it’s much fun. Another very busy boisterous place very busy. Our waitress despite been a crazy... More
