After a many years living/traveling in the south, I can say with confidence: These guys know what they are doing. They could rival some prominent southern BBQ joints. It was so good, I wanted to bottle the smell. :-)
This is the real deal, folks. Tender meats, smoked correct. Well seasoned & savory. Large portioned sides. Very reasonable prices.
If you don't find what you're looking for here, you really don't know what you're looking for. I've been let down by numerous places in the past, but this is certainly some of the best BBQ the NE has to offer. In addition to great food, the casual restaurant-style seating is clean & comfortable (as opposed to the common "take-out style" approach). The staff is courteous & attentive, though not intrusive.
If there was any downside, it's the bottled sauces. The meats need no additional flavoring (again, because they are done correctly), but the sauces were a bit average. I might bring up a batch of my own, on my next visit.
Check out their creative menu as well. Lots of great ideas, in addition to above-average BBQ.
Seriously, Get Here.
Absolutely made my night.
