Get the Big Green Salad. Blue Ribbon is very well known for their pulled pork, burnt ends, beef brisket, smoked sausage, and pulled chicken... and only a select few (well, up until now), know that they have the most delicious salads in the area. Their "Big Green Salad" is exactly that. BIG and GREEN. It is super fresh and contains big, ripe cherry tomatoes, red peppers, and cabbage. They even give you a little container of croutons made from their cornbread. The croutons are a little bit spicey and a lot of delicious. My favorite dressing is the Balsamic Vinaigrette, but I know the Caesar is pretty good as well. You can get the salad with pulled chicken or spicy chicken salad, but I find it is super filling just to eat the veggies... and the cornbread croutons... aaand the large slice of cornbread they give you with the salad as a side. Yum. You can't go wrong.
just got back from memphis and thay aint got nothing on this place!! real deal bbq here!!. blue ribbon has the best pulled pork i have ever had!! just got back from a memphis bbq quest and did most all of the top places (central bbq, neelys interstate, pig on beal,corkys) and i would take the pulled pork hands down at blue ribbon over any of the memphis joints, and the pork ribs are as good if not better than in memphis! maybe memphis has the edge in sauce and sides but no way in meat!! real bbq is not for everybody, but if you like low and slow smoked pork you have to go to blue ribbon!
Go here! Go here!. Most everything from the service to the taste of the food is quite incredible. The only "negative" thing I have to say about BR is regarding the cornbread. (Sorry... it's consistently a bit dry, guys!) Their sauces are tasty and pretty authentic - especially love the NC vinegar! The best part is that the sauce is a CHOICE...they don't use the sauces to cover up subpar cooking! Thumbs up from this Southerner who LOVES her barbeque! Wow...my mouth is watering now!
Where did we go. WE went to the blue ribbon in Arlington I read all these great reveiws and wonder where we went MAybe we just have different taste but we went to the blue ribbon in arlington the staff was metiocore at best and the food was gross I ordered The trio of ribs brisket and pulled chix The ribs were fatty and dry like rubber and the brisket was fatty fatty fatty and the chix was dark meat eww the sauces were good and they had good coke and the mashed potatoes ere good and so was the cornbread we drove an hour to eat here on good reveiws I wish we had gone to one of the many other outstanding resteraunts in that area
May be best BBQ in Boston, but cannot compare to what you can get in the south. Entering Blue Ribbon, our first impression was "it's such a tiny place!" (it seats about 10) The place offers the typical BBQ fairs like ribs, pull pork, chicken, beef brisket. We ordered Half Rib Platter ($14) and Beef Brisket Platter ($10) and each platter comes with a big corn bread and two sides. The Beef Brisket was tender, fatty, and juicy. The BBQ sauce provided on the side at the store was so-so, as it didn't add anything to the flavor of the meat. It was a lot of Beef Brisket. On the hand, the Half Rib was really not a lot of meat. Going in I was hoping for some falling-off-the-bond type of rib meat, but it was just "not tough". In any case, the meat was flavorful and I enjoyed it. It was probably the best BBQ I have had in Boston, but it really cannot compare to what I used to have down in Atlanta.
finger licking good. Yum, Yum! The BBQ ribs here are out of this world. They were so tasty! The portions are huge and the price is cheap! Very quick service. My waitor was very good! If you're hungry and looking for a quick bite and happen to be in the area you should try it.
Possibly the best BBQ in New England. I have been coming to Blue Ribbon for a while now. This place in my opinion has the best BBQ in the state and possibly in all of New England. The staff at both locations are very friendly and food arrives fast. Portions are huge. I highly recommend the "meat trio" of ribs, pulled pork and brisket. The sweet tea is also wonderful. The best time to eat is between 1:30-3:30 as it tends to get very crowded around lunch and dinner times. There is limited seating as well. If you love BBQ, you owe it to yourself to try this place, you will not be disappointed.
Amazing BBQ!!. I'm definitely not the biggest BBQ fan I know, but I absolutely LOVE Blue Ribbon! Their array of delectable BBQ sauces are the best bar none. It can be kind of a trek getting to Arlington since surface street traffic can be a little on the slow side, but it's SO worth it! Will definitely satisfy ANY BBQ craving you might have!
Great Spot for Cue in Newton. Popped in for a plate of Memphis dry rub ribs and pulled pork with mashies, creamed corn/leeks (both excellent) and cornbread on the side. Pulled pork was tangy and tasy, ribs were delicious and covered with some sauce. All the meat was flavorful and came in large portions, nice job! You order at the counter and grab a stool or do takeout. Decor is perfect for cue, lots of little country knick-knacks and you're blasted by delicious smells when you step in. Good assortment of meats and sides, I'd definitely recommend this spot but I'd recommend coming in early...
