Great burgers and ribs

Village Smokehouse is a local favorite with a great atmosphere, crowd and location. The menu is large with lots of variety. Burgers, pulled pork and ribs were among the choices in our party. All dinners were done great.

Absolutely LOVE this place! The food is delicious and plentiful. Everyone from the owner to the bartenders and wait staff is friendly and accommodating. We started coming here when our kids were small - and can't wait to take our grandkids here (quite family friendly)!

They renovated the interior which led me to believe it would be even better than it was before. No such luck I asked for my fajitas to be served physically hot and was given lukewarm food with dry chicken slices put on top. The attitude of the server made me feel uncomfortable sending it back. Suggest Blue Ribbon in Newton... More

My friend took me here for my birthday and it was a wonderful choice! Good food, great vibe, cool area. When looking over the menu, initially I was going to choose the baby back pork ribs, but decided on their insane meat delight o'loves: The Texas Hawg. Shameless - I was the damn hawg - it was soooo worth ordering... More

Don't think about it - just do it! Book Village Smokehouse for your next party...you won't be sorry. Alan provides not only the most flavorful, lip-smackingly delicious food, he serves it up professionally and with lots of charm. He and his daughter are a crack-team - arriving early, setting up quickly/efficiently, providing everything you need - entrees, sides, condiments, paper... More

My family and I celebrated my son's birthday at the Smokehouse a couple of weeks ago and the ribs were wonderful. We had both the baby back and beef ribs and both were amazing. We opted to get the "full rack" (for only $2.00 extra) so that we had some to take home. With so much snow this year we... More

This place is a cute casual restaurant that have all kind of Barbecue food that is very good. I especially like the Ribs and Chicken. Do visit when in Brookline. They also do takeout if in a hurry.

It's hard to get beef ribs in Boston, so the Village Smokehouse is a favorite. The helpings are very generous and the sides are also good. There can be a wait.

Met a friend for dinner here last night. We had a wait for our friend, but were seated right away. We ordered appetizers: BBQ Egg Roll and Onion Rings. The Onion Rings were very tasty and the rings did not slip out of their coating (huge for me). The main meal was exceptionally tasty: Spare tips, BBQ chicken and brisket.... More

Took the T outbound to get a steak at a more reasonable price. A quick ride from Back Bay to Brookline did the trick. The Smokehouse was less than two blocks from the station. Steaks are cooked on the grill that is open to the eating area and next to the bar. Nice family atmosphere and obviously a local standard.... More
