Today, I needed a dose of BBQ...something smoked, because, well, I don't live in the south anymore.

I headed up Mass Ave. out of Cambridge into Arlington and stopped at Blue Ribbon BBQ.  I ordered the Texas Beef Brisket Sandwich.  It was heaven on a bun...and NOT shy on the brisket.  The meat was extremely tender and plentiful.  It was served as I say "nekked" with no sauce...but it truly didn't need any.

If you're in the Boston area, there are two locations of Blue Ribbon BBQ:

1375 Washington St.
West Newton, MA

or

908 Massachusetts Ave
Arlington, MA

nctomass, I swear that I hadn't seen this post of yours before I PMed you about this place!  Obviously it's that innate Carolina brainwave that we share...

This spot is definitely on our review list.  We've been three times, and they also run a catering business that must be unbelievable.  If you find better 'Q in the Boston area, let me know -- but I doubt you will.

chewingthefat, I don't think that nctomass is related to the Janowski clan who runs the business...but I could be wrong!    Chris

Blue Ribbon BBQ is the best BBQ in the Boston area.  I live about 5 minutes away and go at least once a week.  Pro tip: Order off the rotating daily specials chalkboard.

I must say the food looks great and they look like they steam clean the entire place!
