After Winning More Than 20 National Bar-B-Que Awards Owner Steve Uliss won the Massachusetts State BBQ Championships and represented the Commonwealth in the Jack Daniels World Invitational Barbecue Competition. "It took me about nine years to perfect my rib recipe... Now you can sink your choppers into some of the best bar-b-que on the planet, right here at Firefly's... And the awards keep piling up to prove it!" Walk into one of our restaurants and, in addition to receiving a warm welcome with Southern-style hospitality, you'll be greeted by the mouthwatering aromas of authentic American bar-b-que. We smoke our meats for up to 12 hours, blending apple, cherry and hickory woods to create the signature red smoke ring that identifies the genuine low-fire, slow-cooking process of true bar-b-que. We offer four different styles of ribs and mop sauces from around the South including North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. In addition to bar-b-cue, you'll find many other Southern specialties on our menu including Cracklin' Bread, Fried Chicken, Red Beans 'n Rice, Sweet Potato Pecan Puddin' and more! We're also New England's largest BBQ Caterer catering parties for 20 to 20,000! Be sure to check out our Catering Menu if you're even thinkin' about having a party. Kick back, relax, and enjoy Firefly's award-winning bar-b-que and Southern fare at our restaurant, take a feast home, or let us cater your next big party or get together.
