Sweet Cheeks Q... worth the trip to try it?

Anything unique? Is it even good? Been doing Blue Ribbon and Red Bones but curious to try this place by Fenway.

  1. It is excellent. Neat space kind of Industrial looking. Excellent cocktails and fun and delicious food. Ribs are excellent. Pulled pork and brisket sandwiches delicious on each visit. The sides are good too. Butterscotch pudding for dessert. I really like this place!

          This place is worth it just for the biscuits!

          1. re: gini

            I totally and completely agree about the biscuits

      1. Sweet Cheek's is definitely better than Blue Ribbon, but if I was getting in the car, I'd be heading to Blackstrap instead of Sweet Cheeks.

          Likewise. The advantages that I see Sweet Cheeks as having is that they're in the city and they have booze. I wouldn't bother going to them if it entailed a trip into the city.

          That said, I echo the "get the bbbbbbbiscuits" comment above. Those things are phenomenal.

            +1 to 5thAndNowshere, Gabatta and jgg13 replies. Hey, if you're up for a bit of a road trip, go to B.T.'s in Sturbridge, not far from the Pike exit. THAT Q is worth the trip.

            You could pick up the biscuits and take them with you. :)

              I second B.T.'s; best Q i have ever had, and much better than anything in Chi-town, SF, Boston or NYC.

        2. Second the biscuits!

          And, get the Salt & Pepper potatoes. Now that you've reminded me, I may have to wander that way today.

          Yes, it is worth a trip!

            Although I haven't been to Blackstrap, I finally made it to SC a couple weeks ago and came away very impressed. The one thing I'd recommend, which most other places don't have, is the pork belly. Simply amazing.

            It certainly blows away Redbones and Blue Ribbon.

              I liked the short rib, and the biscuits of course. Thought it was all a little overpriced. As for Redbones and the Blue Ribbon, I think it's time they got out of the bbq business.

          2. Absolutely have the biscuit and the pork belly! I dream of that biscuit.
