Sweet Cheeks
Fenway and Kenmore

If you’re famished by the time you reach this BBQ joint on the outskirts of Kenmore Square, you’re in luck. The food comes out fast (sometimes quicker than the libations) and served in big portions. The brainchild of Tiffani Fiason (of Top Chef fame), Sweet Cheeks is a casual place—entrees are served on metal lunch trays, cocktails drank from mason jars and napkins and silverware plucked from cans on the table. Pair the brisket ($19) or buttermilk fried chicken ($22) with the collard greens and coleslaw. If you think you can manage, start with the bucket o´ biscuits and honey butter ($10) for the table.
