A word from Bison County
Bison County combines the best of what Texas, South Carolina, and the Southwest have to offer. For over 14 years we've been serving critically acclaimed hardwood smoked barbecue and grilled meats. We have an eclectic and diverse menu that has something for everyone. We've won "Best of Boston" by Boston Magazine. We've been a 5 time guest on the Phantom Gourmet and won "Gourmet Greatness" and "Great 8 Best in New England" by the Phantom Gourmet. We've also been featured twice on the TV show Chronicle. In addition to our Barbecue and grilled meats we have items like New Orleans 4Pepper Pasta, Blackened Salmon, Southern Fried Catfish, California Style soft Tacos, and grilled fire shrimp. Our bar features over 50 different beers, 15 Single Malt Scotches, 15 Single Barrel Bourbons, 20 Vodka varieties, and 3 50" HD TVs for all your sporting needs. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Reasonable prices, great food, outstanding service (Melissa). Incredible beer list"

  • "This place never disappoints. Excellent ribs and extraordinary beer list."

  • "I came for the bison tips...which I ordered medium rare and they arrived medium. Not a deal breaker, but they were definitely overcooked for my liking. We went late afternoon (4:30 ish). The bar was hopping and the bartender had to double as host and server until the waitresses arrived. Service was attentive. Beer list is extensive and micro-brew types should be very happy. I was also pleased to see so many hard ciders were available...more than the Brew House ever has on tap."

  • "Looking to try some place new - I'm not in that area often. Right off the bat they were out of the beer that I wanted to try. I ordered the ribs which were ok. They were tender enough but not "fall off the bone" and sort of dry. My husband's pulled pork and chicken platter was HUGE and he liked it well enough. Again, both were kind of dry. The atmosphere is very casual - like someplace you'd find in a college town. Just fine."

  • "I love this place! I decided to stray from my usual bison burger and got the pulled pork sandwich. It was absolutely fabulous!"

  • "Food here is good. I ordered a Buffalo Burger with sautéed onions and sweet potato fries. Cooked perfectly- it was juicy and tasty. My friend ordered a cheeseburger and it was also good. Service was prompt and friendly. Good place for a quick bite before or after the movies. Good beer selection."

  • "We hadn't been to Bison County for years and we had a positive experience overall. Even though it was really crowded, we were seated immediately, which was awesome. Our waitress was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the wine and allergy issues that two of us had. The only reason she didn't get a higher mark was because she never checked back during the meal to learn that two of us never got our salads and we were never offered another drink. But, it was quite busy and this isn't a 5 star restaurant, so we weren't too put off. We all enjoyed our meals and I'm glad we went."

  • "This was only our second visit but like our first it was exceptional and we brought more folks along to enjoy it. Behind the bar, Scott has an encyclopedic knowledge of the notable beer menu and willingly shares his thoughts on each selection without being haughty or patronizing. Our server, Emer, was busy yet attentive. Appetizers and entrees arrived quickly and drinks were refilled without waiting. Our party of four ordered the fried pickles, steak tips, pulled chicken quesadilla and chicken burrito. All were delicious and portions were generous. I excitedly recommend Bison County to friends. It took too long for me to discover it. I can't get enough of it now."

  • "They have the tenderness down but they need a good sweet sauce."

  • "We love Moody Street restaurants and Bison County had been on our "bucket list" for some time. We were very pleased with the experience. All three of us enjoyed our meals. My college-age son is a steak tips junkie and he said these were some of the best he's ever tasted. My wife loved her chicken quesadilla. I went small with the Bison County Rubin, an interesting twist on the classic Reuben. While three of beers I wanted to try were not available, there were plenty of others on the menu that were exceptional and not overpriced. Portions were generous, service was fast but not hurried, staff was friendly and attentive. Happy to return soon."

  • "This is a waltham gem. Probably not the best place for a quiet romantic dinner, but it has some excellent food and a good quality selection of craft beers. As a guy who grew up in south carolina, I have a lot of experience with barbeque and I have been to no place in the boston area that does barbeque so well. Their pulled pork is moist without being greasy and the brisket is tender and flavorful. They have a rotating selection of craft beers both bottled and on tap including some very limited seasonal selections from breeers like Avery, Jack's Abby, and Maine beer company."

  • "This is not a fancy restaurant, which is just fine by me. Plain wood floors and tables, and plastic covered benches (patched). Delicious food -- not gourmet but tasty. Wonderful choices of beer, friendly waitstaff, only a single dessert avaialble, which is also fine by me. Noise level acceptable, making coversation possible -- a rare find. The tables are not crammed together -- you have your own space. I like it."

  • "Overall, the food was OK nothing special. The wait staff was very good.The bar would be great place to watch a sporting event...large selection of beers and T.Vs. Food was not Texas BBQ quality. The starters were good, fried pickles were crispy and you could taste the pickles. The corn bread was sweet and fresh. The Cowboy &Indian(select 2meats) was the why to go...you get a lot for your money. The chicken was moist and tasty, the ribs fell off the bone. Disappointed in the brisket....might have been better in a sandwich. First time tasting Bison, meat too dry. The garlic jalapeño rice was lacking in both heat and garlic, the baked beans were real good along with the cole slaw and fries."

  • "The ribs were excellent! and so was the chicken quesadilla! Nice portion size satisfied our hungry appetites without emptying our wallets! The service was attentive and helpful. There is ample parking in the city lot - just across the street! We'll definitely be back!"

  • "I took my daughter (who attends Bentley University) and her boyfriend out here for dinner while visiting. My husband went to college in Savannah and knows his BBQ. He also makes a mean pulled pork and ribs. We all agreed that everything we had was top notch. Sauces were great, ribs and pulled meats were incredible, sides were as good as the mains. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great meal at a decent price."

  • "Loved it per usual. I asked for a table in the bar area to watch the game and they had it ready to go. No complaints here!"
