    When ordering the Eastern Carolina Pulled Pork Platter, order a side bun to construct a sandwich with pork and coleslaw. The pork chunks are massive and tasty, requiring no additional sauce.

    They offer Pigskin Party Packs for groups from 6 to 30 people. Slabs of ribs, pulled pork, brisket, wings, cornbread,& coleslaw from one of Cambridge's favorite barbecue spots sounds like a win to us. Read more

    This spot is rightly famous for its scholarly re-creation of pit barbecue, although we think even the first-rate eastern North Carolina pulled pork relies too much on its excellent vinegary sauce. Read more

    Everything was fantastic for the hangover yearly brunch!! Place was crowded so I do recommend making a reservation. Our server sucked but the manager or the guy in charge was great!!

    Amazing service and food! Get the mussels and shrimp for apps. Also order scallops, fish and chips, and ribs--the ribs is enough for three or four there are so many!

    Don't let the wait get you down. Leave your cell number with the host and grab at beer next door at Buk's. They'll call when your table is ready.

    It's a different kind of BYOB at this haunt's brunch: be-your-own-bartender. Toss celery, olives, Worcestershire sauce, and more into your spicy cocktail and enjoy menu items like the Cuban Reuben. Read more
