It was a very good experience.

We went for a birthday party for my twin niece & nephew's 39th birthday. There were 14 of us. The food & service were excellent! Best barbecued ribs in America and the side dishes and cornbread made everything especially good! We definitely recommend Theodore's. If you ever come to Springfield... read more

There's not much selection in the downtown Springfield area. Most places were closed and was almost a ghost town by the time we arrived at 5pm on a Friday. Theodore's doesn't look like much from the outside but it is huge inside. The portions are a good size and fair prices. Staff is also friendly and attentive.

We went for some BBQ and being downtown as we were, I was skeptical. The online apps gave it solid marks. Boy, am I glad I went! The atomosphere was very freindly and casual. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The wait staff was knowledgeable about the local brews on tap and made solid recommendations about the food choices too.... More

Was looking for good BBQ and found Theodore's on trip advisor. The food was better than described in reviews and the best BBQ I have had in northern CT near Springfield. Make sure you are really hungry because the portions are large at very reasonable prices given quantity and quality. The waitress, Kirsten, was excellent knowing exactly when to come... More

Read prior reviews on TA and we agree......EXCELLENT and highly recommend! It's located downtown and is a bar/restaurant. The decor is old school vintage signs and such. The wait staff is very friendly! We were there on a Wednesday for dinner. We ordered nachos for an appetizer and shared the pulled pork dinner. Portions are big, FYI. The bourbon bbq... More

Swell place to get your grub on! Second visit here and far from disappointed. Previously I had tried the jambalaya, holy YUM. This time I opted for the pulled pork, and boy was my life changed. (I felt it in my soul, honestly.) Bourbon BBQ sauce will have you slurring your words quicker than bourbon on the rocks, just from... More
