Fodor's Review

Red Sox fans, foodies, and Fenway residents flock to this meat lover's mecca, where Texas-style BBQ is the name of the game. Hefty slabs of dry-rubbed heritage pork, great northern beef brisket, and plump chickens cook low and slow in a jumbo black smoker until saturated with campfire flavor. Owner Tiffany Faison tromped all over the Texas barbecue belt to get her recipes finger-licking right, including the homemade sweet pickles and shaved onion that come with every order, heaped on a tray lined with butcher paper. The baseball-size biscuits served with honey butter are delectable, so don't miss those. Sweet tea and cocktails arrive in mason jars, while house-made BBQ sauces (ranging from mild to skull-splittingly hot) sit on the table, along with a tin can of flatware and napkins. (You'll need lots of the latter; with food this good, it's going to get messy!)
