Tennessee's BBQ is a great little place. Hidden off of RT. 9, I passed it many times, but after I stopped, I keep coming back. Solid brisket, great corn bread and mac n cheese, make sure you grab some ribs as well.

I go there when I want delicious ribs. I can count on that. Whether I eat in the restaurant or take my ribs home its the ribs that count the most. The restaurant has good side dishes too. The service is at the counter, courteous, and pretty quick. You take your food to a table of your choice when you... More

I don't know how they stay in business. There usually isn't anybody there the two times I've been there. The food is very average, at best. I won't be back. The areas they could excel in, like simple corn bread, is just blah, almost not worth eating. Wont be back a third time.

Wow. Stopped at Tennessee's Real BBQ in Framingham on my way home from Boston to Central MA. Had the Baby Back Ribs plate with 3 sides. Amazingly good. Haven't had barbecue that good since going to South Carolina. Barbecue sauce was maybe the best I have ever had and I love barbecue sauce. Had three sides. Cucumber salad was A+.... More

I get take-out BBQ from this place on a regular basis. Love the ribs. Recommend getting baby backs with sweet potatoes, and slaw.

Very good BBQ. Commonwealth BBQ is better but I would not hesitate to come back again. Side of fries was very small but the size of the sandwich ensured I did not leave hungry.

I've been coming here for 4 years and love it. The food is cheap and incredible tasting. My favourite dish is the pulled pork burrito with mac n cheese and sweet potato fries. If I was on death row, that's the meal I'd order for my last. Big fan!

Tennessee's BBQ is the real thing. My daughter who has lived in New Orleans for several years agrees. The Memphis Ribs are great. So is the Dixie Chicken and the pulled pork and the collard greens and corn bread and everything else. The cartoon pigs with trucker hats and sun glasses saying "Bad to the bone" say it all. Where...

I'm an avid bbq lover, and this place is among the best. Their meat is always perfectly cooked, and on this trip the ribs were tender and falling off the bone. The sauce(s) they use are always a perfect blend, and their sides are hearty, and delicious. If you're passing through, or staying in the area, I HIGHLY recommend a... More
