“Mmmmm so good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Tiny restaurant with just a few benches to sit at along the wall. Huge portions of the most delicious southern home cooking ever!

“best BBQ in Boston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

You cannot belive that this hole in the wall has such great food until you try it. Soooo, try it, you will not be disapointed. I like the pulled pork or jerk chicken. Try some different sides, some are more interesting than others.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

I play in a hockey league - at the end of the year we always have a catered party from blue ribbon. Everything is great, but the ribs especially are top knotch - thick and meaty without much fat.

“Great barbecue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The food is delicious, the portions are generous and the prices are reasonable. Not a place for a sit down dinner as it's pretty tiny. A good idea to phone your take-out order ahead as the Blue Ribbon is very popular and the lines can be long.

“VERY GOOD BBQ especially in the Northeast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

We have had the food a number of times and it is always fantastic. Absolutely competes with Memphis, KC and St. Louis places I have been to. Good food at a fair price.
