Blue Ribbon, Tennesee's or FireFly's for a party
We're looking to have serve BBQ for an upcoming party. Which of the three below is best?
Blue Ribbon BBQ
I'd go with Blue Ribbon. I was at a party last year that was catered by them, and everything was delicious (the mac and cheese was my favorite!).
I would vote for Firefly's followed by Blue Ribbon. I have never been to Tennesee's so I can't comment on them. Firefly's in Framingham is my favorite BBQ place. I like their ribs, pulled chicken, fried chicken, diced beef brisket and pulled pork. At Blue Ribbon BBQ I like their beef brisket and pulled chicken. The side orders at Blue Ribbon are also very good except I didn't like their mac and cheese.
I've only had Firefly's at a BBQ competition but it was pretty good. You can't go wrong with Blue Ribbon either. Tennesse's is passable but I'd do Lester's before I'd do Tennessee's. I need to try more of Lester's before I could say if I like it better then Blue Ribbon.
I have preferred Firefly's catering to their actual in-house meals in the past... I am not sure why this is, but the quality had definitely been better at catered events. The SO and I were excited about making it to the restaurant after having Firefly's at an event, but I found their in-house food underwhelming.
I prefer Blue Ribbon overall, although I haven't been to anything they have catered!
