Extremely long wait, an hour plus, for our food even with a reservation. When it came it was cold and very fatty ribs. Even giving grace for staffing levels during covid times it was unacceptable. The quality here used to be good.

We were visiting Boston on a family vacation and wanted to hit a Top Chef restaurant. This was good but not one I’d say is a “must” do. The biscuits were incredible and the bbq was good.

This is a great BBQ place in Fenway. It is perfect for an appetizer to a baseball game or concert. Please note that this is a lively restaurant, and you will be shouting to get your voice heard.

This was our first trip to Sweet Cheeks Q and we would go back. The drinks were amazing-I had the Dollywood and my husband had a fun beer choice. The staff were all so friendly and out meals were amazing! We will 100% be back and recommend to everyone.

Went here before a concert at Fenway. Food was very good and service was pretty quick. We had a nice spot outside. A great place to hit before or after a game or show @ Fenway Park.

This was my 2nd time going. Food was excellent, don’t skip on the biscuits! Brisket was yummy as always. The watermelon salad was refreshing and the broccoli casserole was nice and cheesy! Service took a little bit longer though I know it was busy since it was a concert night. Would highly recommend!

Just ok!! We went there for my wife's 50th birthday . I called to see if they could do something special and I was told that" we really don't do that here"... Our waiter never came back to see if we wanted to order more drinks or dessert or anything and he brought my check and just dropped it down and walked away. He returned a few moments later to ask me if the check was all set I handed it to him and said I would like to order some more unless you guys are closed.

Manager tells us there is a 45 minute wait for outside. No problem, give name, phone, etc. Sit at bar. Just for fun check open table made immediate reservation for outside table. They seat us as if we were never there 5 minutes ago. Food and service ok, not worth price but ok for a Sunday night.

The food is always amazing. Whenever I am in Boston I visit sweet cheeks. However, a kids meal would be nice. The $18 chicken tenders was a bit much for my 4 year old.

Made a reservation here before a Red Sox game. Really good BBQ food, great drinks, in and out quick and our server was awesome! It was our first time and she helped us out with all of our questions. Will definitely go back when we are back in Boston for sure!

Place is awesome, food is fantastic, menu is great….they are just overwhelmed. No where near enough staff to handle the business which makes the experience quite frustrating. Even getting a round of drinks takes 30 min.

Great BBQ, sides and other items. Biscuits and salt-and-pepper potatoes are a must try and the Texas style hot links are authentic. Portions are a good size, but prices for both food and drink are somewhat painful.

Eight outside after a Red Sox game the food has always been fantastic here. The menu has changed however. Would have appreciated knowing that jam what’s three dollars extra.$14 is a bit much for biscuits. But as far as the barbecues concerned the food can’t be beat it’s definitely a must stop

The service was wonderful - knowledgeable, happy, came at the right time, etc. The short ribs and the brisket were delectable. We had fried okra, collared greens, cole slaw and the garden salad. Everything we had was well presented and wonderful. And to top it off, a great complimentary beer list. Highly recommend Sweet Cheeks if you are looking for a casual place with great food.
