    SC's nine types of falling-off-the-bone meats are smoked with oak/maple. We recommend the pulled chicken plated as a griddled Texas sammie with broccoli cheese casserole. Read more

    Opening in November 2011, Top Chef star Tiffani Faison's barbecue ode has been nothing short of a smash hit. The biscuits are legendary, and there's now an outdoor beer garden. [Eater 38 Member]

    Drink a union made, american owned PBR. The official beer of BBQ. We love Sweet Cheeks.

    The team is committed not only to what tastes good, but to doing what’s right, serving sustainably raised “super natural” premium Black Angus beef, free of hormones, and additives.

    Great craft beer list. Almost 50 different beers to choose from and pair with your BBQ.

    Best F'n BBQ in Boston! Add the Mac& Cheese

    Those soft, fluffy weapons of coronary destruction (aka biscuits) are a must!

    Fried chicken sandwich is the best I've ever eaten

    Don't want to miss out on the BBQ but afraid you'll burst if you order a tray? Get their salad, which comes with seasonal ingredients, and top it with the meat of your choice.

    Stick with the mothafuckin trays. Side of broccoli and cheese, and carrots and raisins. Beer: Draft

    The fried green tomatoes, hush puppies, and biscuits are to die for, if the belly pork doesn’t get you first. All-American whiskey list is impressive! Read more

    The pulled pork, biscuits and collards are spot on the money. Trust me, I'm from NC ;)

    Avoid the cobb salad.

    Roderic M. · November 13, 2012
  • Erik A.

    Come hungry, big portions! Be careful though, all the food has strong flavours... The potato salad was too vinegary...

    Erik A. · February 19, 2012
  • @BostonAttitude

    Add the Mac & Cheese to anything!

    @BostonAttitude · February 15, 2012
  • Jake S.

    Try mixing the house and Carolina vinegar sauces together on your pulled pork for a flavor explosion.

    Definitely get a 24oz Michelada to wash down the 'Q

    This place is to die for. Me and the bf split a pork belly and brisket tray with Mac and cheese and the farm salad, which was amazinnnnggg. The smell, the atmosphere, the drink list >>>>

    Bone thugz and biscuits

    Don't bother with the fried chicken - batter doesn't stay on - so either you get a big bite of naked chicken or batter - go pulled pork or chicken instead.

  • Mike D.

    Hot biscuits are a must. Don't forget to order them way ahead of your BBQ otherwise you'll be stuffed before you know it!

    Mike D. · September 19, 2012

    that was the worst bbq i've ever had. also, everything was painfully salty and the service was very slow.

    Loved this place, and I'm a little snobby about my TX bbq, as a TX transplant. The brisket is soooo moist and delicious -- a must-have.

    This southern-style joint could very well be the best in the world. We gave them the #DigThis13 award for BBQ! Give their brisket and biscuits a try w/ some moonshine and a PBR and you’ll see why! Read more

    Pulled pork is hands down the best item on the menu. Other highlights include the baked beans and biscuits with honey butter.

    Try the Damn Yankee: bourbon, sapling maple liqueur, and black walnut bitters. And it comes in this cute squat mason jar.
