Who knew you could get good BBQ up in New England! Had the burnt ends and Kansas City rib combo, it was definitely worth it. I recommend trying their 50/50 sauce as it balances nicely. The interior was clean and staff friendly. Will keep this...More

Being from Texas, I have a certain expectation for BBQ. The meat here is not as soft and tender and the sauce is average. The cashier was really friendly and patient. She helped me pick out the best that they had to offer.
