    Ordered from Soul Fire the other day. Their cornbread is amazing! Buffalo Mac and Cheese was good although I would have added some blue cheese into it, but thats just me. ColeSlaw and CornDog!!! yes

    Pork Shoulder came out cold the first time. Other than that, it was great! The mac n Cheese is a must!

    Came here while on vacation. Food was served cold. Waitress didn't offer anything to help us out. Asked for a manager and he refused to come speak with us.

    Despite its Allston location, Soulfire is authentically Southern, serving huge portions of flavorful smoked meats at college-friendly prices. Try the baby back ribs with mashed potatoes & cornbread. Read more

    All you can eat wings every Monday night starting at 5pm! $12 per person, pit smoked wings, 4 different flavors!

    Weird when you go in it seems like there is an area for a host but you just seat yourself. To get beer and wine you need to order food. A 2 meat platter comfortably feeds 2.

    Oh man, where to start. Make sure to try the Brisket, pulled pork, and turkey. Corn bread, Mac and cheese, and potato salad for sides!

    Best brisket I've ever rated. Moist, tender, and with Pitboss sauce, just perfect. Also, nice tender pulled pork. Baby back ribs were less moist in my 3-meat sampler plate but still quite nice.

    If you order the Sampler, they bring you everything at once. Wish I would have known because I would have preferred all these delicious items in a properly timed manner. Oo well. Dig in.

    Come here with an appetite - platters are piled high with pork, ribs, and even catfish. Don't forget the cornbread (or the mac 'n' cheese) as you savor Memphis BBQ with blues tunes in the background.

    If you like super hot but great flavor try the devil relish.

    Bring a friend and get the Pitboss Sampler. Just slightly enough for two average sized men. Wash down with a Porkslap Pale Ale.

    Our favorite dish might be the mac n' cheese! We also love the chicken sandwich, and our favorite sauces are Pitboss and Soulfire. For a real feast, we recommend the fried chicken platter. Read more

    The catfish is phenomenal. No, really. And it's a sin to all mankind if y'all don't get the collard greens

    They don't serve coffee or other hot beverages but do allow you to bring some in from the shop next door if you'd like some.

    Their meats are ok chicken is better than pork but it's the sides that make this a winner. The mac and cheese is the best I've ever had.

    They've taken mac n' cheese, rolled it into bite-size balls, and dropped it into the fryolater. The result? Macaroni and cheese as finger food — a delicious metamorphosis. Read more

    Ask for their South Carolina sauce on the side. It's not available unless you request it.
