Pretty cool environment, although no live music when I was here (too early) and tasty, huge food portions (I had the brisket, and substituted mac and cheese and waffle fries) which were almost to large to be honest unless you are a HUGE eater. This place fails when it comes to personality. Service was proficient and professional, and that was... More

I have been here twice now in the last month. The first time I had the St. Louis style ribs. They were very tender and were finished with a bourbon BBQ sauce. They also have several other sauces to choose from including a hot or vinegar based. Tonight I tried the pulled pork sandwich. It was very tender & piled... More

My wife and I went to the Big E during the day and wanted some good food and music for dinner. Ally the Host at our hotel said this place was very good and she was right. Except for my pulled pork being overcooked and a little dry everything was very good. If it was not overcooked the pork would... More

Been coming here for years. Best BBQ in the city. Live music almost every night. Strong drinks (have a Texas tea), and not a horrible beer selection either. Would recommend to anyone that likes good food and a good time.

Friendly atmosphere great music fabulous BBQ! It was a short 6 minute walk from bus depot. Had the pulled pork. Great! Corn bread was best I've ever had. Only complaint is it is so good sometimes they run out of the BBQ. I wanted to try the sausage and brisket... both were sold out. So get their early.

Had two pleasant surprises out of this BBQ. First it is owned by a female. That really doesn't bother me, but watching pitmasters on TV and going to many BBQ competitions, I just never saw a woman involved. Good for her!! Second, in Massachusetts, this is as close to Kansas City BBQ I have tasted. The taste was limited to... More

Not the first place you would think of for good BBQ, but it delivers. Great ambiance, live music, and food. Had the smoked chicken and homemade chips. Both were a hit.

We were diverted from the Big E due to traffic, and stopped at Theodore's. Amazing fall off the bone ribs with a great selection of sauces. Waffle fries were crisp and delicious. Waitress was nice, attentive, and seemed proud of their product. Too early for music, but we'll be back!
