FireBox BBQ Restaurant Opening Soon in Bedford

FireBox BBQ Restaurant is scheduled to open in Early October at 347 Great Road. The restaurant, which will focus on contemporary BBQ, replaces the KnowFat/Ufood Grill which shut down at the end of March. It appears the new restaurant purchased most of the existing equipment from Ufood Grill. I plan to have a more detailed update along with some photos of the interior shortly before it opens.

I'm pleasantly surprised how quickly a new restaurant moved in given the overall economy. The retail economy in Bedford seems to be stronger than many of the surrounding towns in terms of vacant space.

In other restaurant news. Construction is well underway on a Margaritas Mexican Restaurant 1 mile away at the old Denny's location in Lexington and is scheduled to open by the end of October.

I was in search of BBQ in the great state of Massachusetts while visiting NE during Foliage Season. I asked around and was told about this new restaurant called The FireBox BBQ. It is located at 347 Great Rd in Bedford MA. The place is extremely clean and well laid out. We tried a sampling of their Chicken, Beef Ribs and Pork Ribs. All meats were tender and Juicy. We commented how both type ribs we sampled were very meaty with no gristle. We felt the owners used top selects of meat in their preparations. Now the Sauce…….It was a great blend of herbs and spices. Not overwhelming or biting. The FireBox BBQ allows you to later add additional sauce to make the taste as hot as you like. The Beans are Great but the most FANTASTIC MUST TRY are the Sweet Potato fries. Seasoned just right and cooked to perfection. All food has a real homemade taste and presentation. Drinks? Has cold beer on tap but I encourage you to taste the fresh lemonade or their ice tea. Firebox BBQ has 4 natural sweeteners in bottles so you can just sweeten your tea or use a sweetener with lemon, mint or vanilla. All of which are natural and you can see the whole ingredients floating in the bottle. The counter help is extremely helpful, polite and the co-owner David that I talked to at length after the meal was extremely nice. When I asked him about the meats he uses I was correct in my assumption that they use top grade meats that are from local farms. I give this place high marks. The food was excellent, prices very reasonable and you get nice size portions. David and his wife Carolyn were extremely friendly and I have added them as friends on Face Book
