    Being from Georgia, I've got high standards for southern food. That being said, I was very disappointed by the cheese grits, but the biscuits were pretty good. Best I've found in New England so far

    Pulled pork, biscuit with honey butter, and the crunchy Mac n cheese were highlights. Meat platter w/ 3 meats can easily fill two people for $26. Great beer and cocktail selection, too.

    I got the pulled chicken, farm salad, collard greens, and of course a biscuit. The biscuit was BOMB, and everything else was tasty too. A little expensive, but a lot of food. I'll be sure to be back!

    2015 Best BBQ Restaurant: "Those fussing over the heftier prices should note—her fall-apart ribs, crackly-skinned sausages, & mammoth slabs of brisket are sourced from the highest-quality purveyors."

    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]

    Biscuits. Biscuits. Biscuits. Yes, they're huge, but they're also the best I've ever had (take some to go if you don't finish). Mac & Cheese wasn't worth it, surprisingly. Get the meat and farm salad.

    You can now order their famous biscuits individually instead of by buckets of 4. Watch out though, they are huge and filling but delicious and were even voted #1 in the country by Forbes Magazine.

    The meat is excellent, sweet ice tea is perfect Texas style! I loved the sweet pickles too! Neg 1 - the napkins are so thin they stick to your fingers and bits come off. 2 - Texas toast is thicker.

    The biscuits are amazing. By themselves or as the bread in a pulled meat sandwich. For sides, go with the salt and pepper potatoes. Also, the fried chicken is great (it takes a while though).

    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.

    If you're a pepper maniac, the habanero sauce is not nearly as spicy as you might hope. It is basically simple syrup, very sweet and minimally invasive. Stick with the vinegary Carolina sauce.

    Fantastic biscuits (try with the honey butter). Also loved the pulled pork and cheesy broccoli. Stay away from coleslaw- it's more salad-like. Good beer selection too.

    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.
