“Underwhelming”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

Just returning from 2 weeks in the south I know it may be unfair to give a review on another BBQ place compared to the simply unforgettable BBQ we were fortunate enough to stumble upon down there. Anyhow, my family of 4 went in for lunch anticipating some delicious food. Unfortunately, at best it was ok. The meats; chopped, pulled, and brisket were dry and flavorless. I was able to pour enough of their sauce on my meatloaf to make it palatable, but even the sauce isn't noteworthy. Overall,it wasn't awful, but nothing noteworthy enough to return for.

“Who knew CT did awesome bbq!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

If I didn't read about this on TripAdvisor we would have totally missed out! It's in a strip mall and we passed it twice and had no idea it was there! Delicious! We shared the 4 meat combo and that was more than enough for all of us. Must try the Carolina pulled pork. Amazing!

“Great BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

Craving BBQ after calling on Electric Boat, I was given a recommendation by a couple of Navy personnel who frequent Chesters when in port. Good call. Service was quick, BBQ was delicious. Many options from combo platters to sandwich combos. Choice of about 10 sides to go with your meal.

Highly recommend!

“Solid BBQ in New England”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

Stopped by for a late lunch and was impressed. Chester's has a great variety of BBQ meats and sides. Not a traditional sit down restaurant, but very good. Their pulled pork and smoked turkey is tender and cooked perfectly. The chicken wings have great smokey flavor but were a little greasy. If you crave BBQ, give them a try.
