Seldom have I had such tender and meaty ribs with about the best sauce I can remember. Their sauce is on the sweet side with just the right amount of tanginess. They usually have ribs on special for a very reasonable price that includes choice of potato and cole slaw.

The pour was insane for Buffalo Trace which is always a good start. Beer selection is not large but covers all groups. Fries are not amazing but they are fries. The wraps are outstanding Service A+

Blackies is a local restaurant serving good food at inexpensive prices. Their hambergers are good but the best item on the menu is the broasted chicken. There are daily specials which always a includes fresh fish entry. There is a large bar which seems quite popular.

We eat here a couple times a month. Great chicken skewers and burgers. Breasted chicken is great too!

I ordered their Broasted Chicken. It was nice that they offered an all white meat selection for an extra charge, but now that I've had it, it wasn't really worth it. The chicken was super bland and tasteless... I don't think there was any seasoning on it what so ever. I actually had to put salt on the skin just... More

What is it they say about folks who keep doing the same thing, but expect a different result? They return to Boston Blackie's -- even though it was only average the last time they went. And the time before that.. Yet, someone suggests Boston Blackie's and off we go. The good news is that there's an extensive menu. The bad... More

I thought that the food was quite good. I enjoyed the fajitas. The vegetable stack was also good. The service was polite and efficient.

I love the Reuben sandwiches and their skirt steaks. Others tell me they have great hamburgers. The prices are good and there's a lot of coupons online. Probably the only problem is they're always crowded and it is a bit noisy and difficult to talk.
