Have been visiting family for a long time in NC, and the BBQ is excellent there. Commonwealth BBQ is as good as or better then anything you'll find down south. I happen to like pulled pork BBQ, and they do a great job. I'd recommend The Commonwealth sandwich; it is gigantic. The fries are just OK. Easy in and out,... More

First time...chicken wings were dry and the beef ribs had hardly any meat... definitely didn't fall off the bone..I got tired of trying to pry it off the bone. Will not return.

So, my son was working in Wrentham the other day and stopped for lunch at commonwealth bbq. He could not finish the pound of brisket he ordered [along with chili and cornbread] go figure, so I was the lucky recipient of the brisket, which is always my first choice when ordering bbq. OMG, AWESOME!!!!!!, and that was some hours later,... More

I go here about 10 times per year to have lunch and almost every weekend for their habanero wings to have for football game parties. REALLY tasty and hot!

Went on a Sunday afternoon w our family. The food reminded me of a trip we took south. Everything had great moistness to it and very full of flavor. The portions were big. The prices were very reasonable. There were many choices to choose from. Lots of sides so each combo was just the way you wanted. Eat here often... More

We stopped here thinking there was a place to eat inside but you eat outside. It was a cold day so we were uncomfortable and will know this for our next visit. The picnic tables were not clean so that was a little bit of a turn off for me. My husband and son loved their barbecued ribs. I had... More

This is the third or fourth time I've eaten at Commonwealth BBQ, and decided to review. Their sandwiches are piled high with meat and usually leave you with enough to take home for a late night snack or even dinner... This time my husband and I went all out and got the Wampum Platter Sampler, it came with beef (you... More

I have always driven past this place and never thought to stop in until the other day. We got two commonwealth sandwiches, each one could have fed two people with the amount of meat stuffed in them. They were delicious, as was the coleslaw on them. There were a variety of sauces to choose from - we went with the... More
