I have always driven past this place and never thought to stop in until the other day. We got two commonwealth sandwiches, each one could have fed two people with the amount of meat stuffed in them. They were delicious, as was the coleslaw on them. There were a variety of sauces to choose from - we went with the... More

Stopped at this place on my way back to Providence airport, Strictly take out with picnic tables to sit around but very little shade. It's like visiting a takeout stand. Menu above the order area, good mix of chicken,beef and pork items with sides and drinks. I don't eat pork so ordered the Beef ribs which I love to eat... More

This is one of those drive in restaurants that you should never drive past. the pulled pork is excellent and all the fixin's that go with it are excellent also. This is real BBQ that reminded me of being back in VA or NC where BBQ is a way of life. This holds is own in that market.

What used to be a dumpy little ice cream stand on the side of the road has turned into a best busy little BBQ around, just a hop skip and jump to the Wrentham outlets and easy axis to 495 this little place cranks the customers out. No indoor seating you either enjoy the picnic tables out doors or you... More

I ordered bbq for 20 people and everyone raved about how good the food was. I ordered ribs, pulled pork, chicken, cold slaw, cowboy beans and corn bread. Food was really good. Picked it up hot and they even let me borrow the container to keep the food warm. I wasn't planning on serving it for a few hours. I... More

Those giving this place more than a single star have got to be friends of the owner or simply don't know decent BBQ. By far the worst BBQ I've ever had, in fact you would probably get better BBQ ribs from a McRib sandwich at McDonalds! I have given them 3 tries over this year and have tried a few... More

Christopher V, Owner at Commonwealth BBQ, responded to this review

Thanks for the review Robert. I won't argue your points except for I wish I had that many friends! From the outset, our recipes are designed to appeal to folks who live, eat, and choose restaurants in the Northeast. We are not or will never try to impress BBQ experts with our ability to prepare BBQ indigenous to other areas... More
