We have been here a few times before and it is consistently average. The pork and brisket are covered in sauce and it really masks the flavor of the meat. The place isn't very clean and the people who work there are less than cordial....More

Was it pulled pork or pulled chicken???? Terrible constancy, very dry!! Really good pulled pork should not NEED Bbq sauce! It's defiantly not southern BBQ!!!! Unless you mean southern Mass! The dill potato salad and corn salad was good.

Just say phooey to those who swear that only Southerners can do barbecue. Utter nonsense. Bub's Bar-B-Q totally defies the Southern bloviations, and proves that righteous barbecue is close at hand and carrying a bright flag in Massachusetts, yes Massachusetts. Bub's looks like a roadhouse...More

We all enjoy Bub's, even the gluten-free vegetarians among us. The meats are cooked to the appropriate tenderness and the barbecue sauce is yummy. The side dishes are plentiful, varied, and all you can eat self-serve. We've been going here for decades. It really is...More

Bub's is a local institution for BBQ fare. While it isn't gourmet BBQ in any way, it is comfort food that is consistently enjoyable if you like Bayou/Southern style BBQ and it's accompaniments. Smokey and sweet/savory all at the same time. The sides are not...More

Great BBQ ribs, brisket, and chicken. Love the all you can eat sides of fries, whipped sweet potatoes, baked beans, bread and whipped butter, and lots more. Fried green tomatoes are a must! Attentive, kind service and free jukebox. Beer and refillable fountain sodas. Sit...More
