Hubby and I finally got a chance to dine at this Phantom Gourmet rated BBQ destination. First and foremost, make online reservations. The place is super busy. Apparently its a very popular place and weekends can be very challenging. Also note, their parking lot is very limited so they have valet parking which you're most likely forced into doing unless...

Went for the lunch buffet on Sunday, as the lot was completely full on Friday evening. This might be the best BBQ that I've had, and I've eaten plenty in my time. The St Louis ribs nearly fell off the bone and everything else was super tasty. Looking for BBQ? You can't go wrong with this place!

We were staying in Mass for the weekend.We found this place on line & decided to try it. We were greeted by everyone with a smile and we felt welcomed right away. Since we were new, sometimes it's a little overwhelming because most people were probably regulars & were comfortable with the surroundings. We sat in the bar, had a... More

Four of us visited for Sunday Brunch with an 11:30am reservation and were promptly seated (very glad we had a reservation - it was crowded). EXCELLENT selection of sides, BBQ meats, breakfast items, and desserts as part of the all-you-can-eat Sunday brunch buffet. All of the meats were freshly prepared and delicious - I especially liked the boneless ribs and... More

Wow, just so much food! Very American in terms of size and how it's cooked, huge selection - could not decide! For the Brits, it's like 3 courses in 1 meal. Everyone very happy with their food, I chose the waffle chicken just to mix up sweet with savoury but couldn't finish it....others had ribs and various meals and found... More

These guys do BBQ about as anyone I've sampled in New England. Both the pork and the brisket have good smoke. The fried chicken doesn't come close to what you'd get down south. It would be nice to see/taste some burnt ends in the baked beans. Good atmosphere. Service was great at the bar. I'll be back whenever I don't... More

After Winning More Than 20 National Bar-B-Que Awards Owner Steve Uliss won the Massachusetts State BBQ Championships and represented the Commonwealth in the Jack Daniels World Invitational Barbecue Competition.

"It took me about nine years to perfect my rib recipe... Now you can sink your choppers into some of the best bar-b-que on the planet, right here at Firefly's... And the awards keep piling up to prove it!"

Walk into one of our restaurants and, in addition to receiving a warm welcome with Southern-style hospitality, you'll be greeted by the mouthwatering aromas of authentic American bar-b-que.

We smoke our meats for up to 12 hours, blending apple, cherry and hickory woods to create the signature red smoke ring that identifies the genuine low-fire, slow-cooking process of true bar-b-que. We offer four different styles of ribs and mop sauces from around the South including North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.

In addition to bar-b-cue, you'll find many other Southern specialties on our menu including Cracklin' Bread, Fried Chicken, Red Beans 'n Rice, Sweet Potato Pecan Puddin' and more!

We're also New England's largest BBQ Caterer catering parties for 20 to 20,000! Be sure to check out our Catering Menu if you're even thinkin' about having a party.

Kick back, relax, and enjoy Firefly's award-winning bar-b-que and Southern fare at our restaurant, take a feast home, or let us cater your next big party or get together.
