I really enjoy the food. But the service is so slow that I avoid this place now. They made some awesome additions to the place and it looks really nice. They have some good blues music playing all of the time. You can't beat the sauces. I feel really bad for the one waitress who is seating people, taking orders,... More

I REALLY wanted to give these guys an EXCELLENT review. The service takes a long time to order anything and for it to come out. The poor girl working at the front was practically running the place by herself (taking orders,running food, cleaning tables). The texture was good. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich and a BBQ chicken breast with... More

Awesome barbecue and super friendly service. The pulled pork was so good and the Burnt Ends were incredible. Fries were good too but the Mac and Cheese for a side is a must try!!

The food was delicious. I had the pulled pork sandwich. The table sauces are divine. The mash potatoes was great. Overall food was amazing every main and side dish we got. We sat outside around dinner time. I didn't like the metal tables, the illumination been too weak and the spider webs above our heads. They are expanding and the... More

Hubby and I have been meaning to try Riverside out for quite some time now - every since we moved to the area two+ years ago. Today we finally made it. It's always confusing to walk into a new place - do we sit or wait to be seated? Is it counter service? Where's the menu? Etc. Etc. So Riverside... More

Stopped here before a charity event down the street. I got the chicken tenders. They were huge and very tender. Sauces were very good, they leave them on the table for you. I got the fried pickles as a side, which were excellent! My boyfriend got the brisket sandwich, he loved it. My cousin got the pulled chicken and said... More

I have tried several BBQ restaurants in the New England Area and I have to say that Riverside BBQ is the best place I have gone to. The menu is simple, and absolutely delicious. The ribs have a fantastic Memphis Rub, sweet and incredible. The sandwiches consist of Pulled Pork or Chicken, Beef Brisket, Smoked Turkey, Smoked Sausage, and Burnt... More

Stopped by for some take out after work, location is great, inside is cute though the font on their menu board is tough to make out. The woman behind the counter greeted me immediately and was very friendly even when delivering bad news that they were out of pulled pork, brisket and collards. So, I ended up ordering a small...

So sorry you were not entirely pleased with our food. BBQ by nature has times where we run out of our more popular items. W do try very hard to make sure that everything that we serve is as it would be in the region that it's best known for yet fits with local tastes. We do recognize that not... More

My grandsons suggested we try this place, as it was one of their favorites, in the Nashua area. There were six of us for a late lunch, on a recent Sunday afternoon. The seating is somewhat limited, but we were able to all sit together. I believe they have a brisk take-out business also. Their entire menu was smoked barbeque... More
