    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.

    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.

    Try anything. I bet you it will be amazing. I had the brisket and biscuits (the honey butter omg 😍). The pork belly is also really good. Drinks are great and STRONG. Definitely worth a visit.

    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!

    Definitely get the biscuits. I typically get the prime brisket, sometimes the chopped brisket, and less often the fried chicken. Coleslaw is good, but the Mac & cheese/cheesy broccoli rice are better

    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).
  • Anastasia B.
    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.

    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]

    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

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    Pretty pricey for small portions. Got the brisket, chop brisket, sausage and half rack of ribs. Biscuits were excellent. Ribs and meats are smoky but a little dry. 4/5

    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.

    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.
