Description: After Winning More Than 20 National Bar-B-Que Awards Owner Steve Uliss won the Massachusetts State BBQ Championships and represented the Commonwealth in the Jack Daniels World Invitational Barbecue Competition. "It took me about nine years to perfect my rib recipe... Now you can sink your choppers into some of the best bar-b-que on the planet, right here at Firefly's... And the awards keep piling up to prove it!" Walk into one of our restaurants and, in addition to receiving a warm welcome with Southern-style hospitality, you'll be greeted by the mouthwatering aromas of authentic American bar-b-que. We smoke our meats for up to 12 hours, blending apple, cherry and hickory woods to create the signature red smoke ring that identifies the genuine low-fire, slow-cooking process of true bar-b-que. We offer four different styles of ribs and mop sauces from around the South including North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. In addition to bar-b-cue, you'll find many other Southern specialties on our menu including Cracklin' Bread, Fried Chicken, Red Beans 'n Rice, Sweet Potato Pecan Puddin' and more! We're also New England's largest BBQ Caterer catering parties for 20 to 20,000! Be sure to check out our Catering Menu if you're even thinkin' about having a party. Kick back, relax, and enjoy Firefly's award-winning bar-b-que and Southern fare at our restaurant, take a feast home, or let us cater your next big party or get together.

“Still the one”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

This is our go-to place for barbeque in Central Mass. Enjoyed a couple of beers and barbeque on a weeknight. Sat in the bar to watch the ballgame. Bartender steered us to good choices of draft beer. I had pulled pork sandwich - he enjoyed the St. Louis Ribs with a peach barbeque sauce. Everything was just right.

“Ribs are great!”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Overall a good experience, the food is good but the star attraction is of course the ribs. The fish my wife ordered as a bit dry for my taste but her salad was fresh. I love the condiments bar and the assortment of BBQ sauces. The parking was just fine.

They have a lunch wagon out in their parking lot during the day in the summer, that's my favorite place to stop on the way home.

Enjoyed the St. Louis ribs - were nicely cooked. Sauces excellent and range from sweet to spicy to very spicy. Sides very good, especially mac & cheese.
