THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Village Smokehouse Restaurant Review

: This Brookline Village smokehouse bills itself as "authentic Texas barbecue" but true connoisseurs know this is not the real deal. Even still, the barbecue cooked on an open pit is a finger-licking good quick fix. Share a large “Firestarter” sampler of spicy buffalo shrimp, buffalo tenders and stuffed jalapeños before moving on to a pulled pork or sliced beef brisket sandwich. The casual menu leans heavily on traditional fare, with Texas size baby-back pork ribs being the standout. There are also some unique finds like the fiery “Death Fajitas” of hickory smoked chicken breast, beef tenderloin, grilled shrimp or hickory smoked Texas sausage with jalapeños, grilled on the open pit. The Mississippi mud square’s rich chocolate cake with chocolate cream, chocolate sauce and white chocolate topping is the best way to end a fun night at this cowboy roadhouse.

The Village Smokehouse, Best Barbeque in the Boston area.
by Mistergull on Tue Mar 27, 2012 3:27 pm
The absolute best barbeque in the greater Boston area. The Texas Hawg is a sampler that can easily feed two people. The only things missing from the menu are grits and greens. The barbeque sauce (vinegar based?) is not too sweet or too hot to handle, and will leave you asking for more. The ribs, sausage, brisket and chicken are hickory smoked onsite in the kitchen, and grilled on the open grill in the dining area.
