“Very Good Barbecue”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Went here with a friend for dinner on a Sunday evening. The smells were super as we went in the door. Cooks were hustling at the back. The server, Rebecca, was knowledgeable and friendly. We had a pulled pork platter and combo platter. They were served with sauce, if wanted, on the tables. I prefer it that way. The pork was suoer, brisket was great, and rib variety was delicious, and we brought food home for lunch the next day. Sides were tasty. We will go back.

“Come with an appetite”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. The fried pickles and jalapeños with tartar sauce were quite delicious. I had the BBQ hash plate with greens and mac and cheese, my boyfriend had the Jamaican beef sandwich plate. The portion sizes are gigantic- you definitely don't need to worry about leaving hungry. The meats and sides were decent but I will warn that the Jamaican beef was VERY spicy!

I wouldn't say this is my favorite bbq spot in the Boston area, but it's a nice casual local place. I prefer the downstairs seating area, it's dark with some cool art and a low key vibe. Our server Jenn was super friendly and everything came out very quickly. This place gets a lot of hype and overall it's worth checking out.

“Very interesting place indeed”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is a very unique place to have a meal. Drinks are served in jelly glasses with handles. the place is always crowded and very noisy. The food is mostly good, wholesome food. Conversation has to be kept at a minimum due to noise.

“Something missing”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

We had wonderful sandwiches for lunch but the potato salad and cole slaw that came with lunch were terrible. The potato salad appeared to be a smashed potato with no dressing, no spices. Cole slaw had little dressing - a watery liquid was in the bottom of the plate. Both salad and slaw were absolutely tasteless with no flavor. Would not order again. Fabulous wait staff and atmosphere. A great place overall!

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Just what you would exspect from a "real bbq place"... nothing fancy just good food... the ribs and sauce is great, it gets very busy so if go, go early and you won't regret it.
