THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Poppa B's Restaurant Review

: Poppa B's doles out unpretentious Southern fare in a homey setting. Portions are heaping, service is sassy and the food tastes like love. Best of all, everything---and that includes the kicky signature barbecue sauce---is homemade. You'll find all the standards here: pulled pork sandwiches, fried chicken, succulent ribs. Main dishes come with two sides; try the fried okra and the mac 'n’ cheese. Melt-in-your-mouth cornbread is included with each order. This is also a popular post-church breakfast destination on the weekends. The namesake breakfast is a plate stacked high with a smothered pork chop, three eggs scrambled with cheese, grits, fried apples and homemade biscuits. Purists take note: This is the closest you'll come to real Dixie dining in Boston.
