    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.

    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]

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Taylor is a super-waiter. Way friendly and knows the menu up, down and backwards. There isn't enough space to express how incredible the food is here... Biscuits and honey butter and fried chx, oh my!

    Best of Boston 2016: BBQ 🍖 :: Metal trays of tender ribs, buckets of now-iconic honey-butter biscuits, and Mason-jar cocktails, best imbibed by the outdoor beer shed. Sweet mercy.

    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).

    The food here is incredible, try the pulled pork, the pulled chicken, the fried green tomatoes, the hush puppies and the black eyes peas! For a little drink to go with? The Indian summer.

    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.

    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.

    You MUST have the biscuits. Pulled pork with Mac and cheese and coleslaw is my usual. All amazing.

    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

    Where do I begin? The food here is phenomenal. Order anything. The salt and pepper potatoes are phenomenal and the pork bellies are worth the extra hour or two on the treadmill.

    I always get the pulled pork tray with Mac n cheese and potato salad. It's always amazing and you have to get the rolls with the maple butter too.

    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

    Best thing I've had here: BBQ brisket, worst: Mac and cheese (super salty). Overall good food and the $24-26 trays are enough for two.

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

    Brisket. Don't order anything else. Melt in your mouth good with Texas toast. Oh and do yourselves another favor and start with the biscuits.

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

    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!

    Honey buttered biscuits. Omg. Get a basket and take the leftovers home for breakfast. The ribs are the worst I've ever had and the mac n cheese has poor flavor.

    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.
