“Outstanding food and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

For our first taste of Boston BBQ, my grandson and I took the Green Line 6 stops from our hotel and and picked up our preordered food. As we walked in the door our order was placed on the counter. That told us all we needed to know about their service. Back at our hotel, we feasted on really great BBQ. Tender with great flavor and some really good sauces. The sides were great too. The "pot liquor" from the collard greens let me know that they are serious about their food.

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Went for wing night (Mondays) -- all you can eat wings for <$15 after tax/tip! Their combination platters are also amazing. Fried chicken and baby back ribs are the way to go

“Excellent taste and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Have tried the soulfire BBQ restaurant in Brigham circle a couple of times....The decor isn't much to look at but the food is always excellent...the catfish is superb as is the brisket, fried chicken and ribs ! The service is always very good and they have started to serve alcohol recently. I love this place as it's great value...we have stopped going to Sweet cheeks and have started to come here for our bbq fix !

Share the platter with a friend or two and see what this place is about. Fairly priced and a very tasty selection of meats. Dig in!

“Accessible, and a hot spot for carnivores.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We had a groupon for this place, and my boyfriend LOVES BBQ, so we had a date night.

First of all, they get an A+++ for accessibility, as they have buttons that open their door for wheelchair users (very rare!!!), and are just super helpful.

The food was delicious, and portions were huge! We are french fry connoisseurs and we could not finish their "basket of fries" even though they were so good! The rice and beans was also great!

Our waitress was patient, friendly, and did not hurry us at any time. She got bonus points when we paid- we forgot to tell her about the groupon until after she ran our card, so she did it again with no complaint, AND she came back and told us, with the groupon we didn't even reach our price limit and could order something to go if we wanted! We ordered an order of wings that were out in record time! We will definitely be back here.
