    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

    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.

    Spicy prawn app was a highlight -- actually reminded me of Sichuan hot peppercorn flavors. Not for the faint of heart, but definitely try it if you dare!

    One of the best drinks on the menu is the Daly Palmer; mango-sweet-tea-infused vodka & fresh-squeezed lemonade served in a pint glass with ice. Wicked yum.
