Sweet Cheeks

Sweet Cheeks 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 fingerlicking 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 are served in mason jars, while house-made BBQ sauces (mild, medium, and 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!)
