First off, is this place Texan, Southern, or Western? It has an identity complex but that's not the main problem. The food is expensive and just not that good. For those looking for a late night drink in Brookline Village though, this place serves usually until at least 1 AM.

Friendly service and tasty food. Good sized portions for the price of the meals but I thought the combo app was small. Good in a pinch, I would not hurry back there are better choices in the GBA.

We had the full chicken wings (shared order) plus a plate of brisket and shared Texas size beef ribs The ribs and chicken wings are to die for - The Brisket is very tender but not as extraordinary as the ribs They taste of smoke and the sauce is tasty and does not overwhelm Samuel Adams on tap and a...

Awesome spot in Brookline Village for some meat candy. Interesting decor and friendly staff. The ribs and margaritas are always the tops. The corn bread always comes out hot and fresh. Just make sure to ask for extra wet naps.

Had a very nice meal. Ribs, chicken, salmon among our meals. Nice smokey flavor and I like they offered sauce on the side, light or heavy. Friendly service, nice experience. Will return again.

Revisited an old favorite last night, back when they opened in 1987 they were the first and only BBQ joint in Massachusetts and on top of that, they were GOOD. 29 years later and they are still smokin', just they haven't evolved (although the menu is bigger) at all and other places (Sweet Cheeks, Blackstrap, and of course BTs) have...

Anything you order here is amazing, from the burger, to the ribs, to the steaks, to the buffalo tenders, to the chilli, its just all outstanding, if you love BBQ and meat, this is the place to visit. Nice bar as well.

This was picked by others for a gathering. I have lived close by in JP for years but finally got to try it. Welcoming atmosphere and a visible grill complete with fireball flashes make for an entertaining venue. The BBQ is good but now that I have finally tried it, I would say that other places are better. Both Sweet... More

This was a favorite place for my wife and me many years ago when they first opened their doors. We visited this restaurant routinely from about 1990 to 1993 when we were living in Boston. Fast forward a whole bunch of years and we visited again two weeks ago with our 3 children. The Village Smoke House has simply lost... More

Great bbq and service in a casual pub-like atmosphere. I live nearby and eat here regularly with my family.
