There are some cuisines that Boston has down pat: take their lobster rolls, oysters, and clam chowder as an example. Other genres are lacking a bit in New England, such as amazing Mexican food (sure, I’m biased because I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA where the Mexican food is amazing, but still). Yet what it lacks in tacos and enchiladas, Boston makes up for in comfort food – and Sweet Cheeks Q near Fenway Park is the perfect example.
First of all, let’s just chat about their biscuits for a second. I’m not talking KFC little dingy biscuits here – these guys are almost the size of my face, light and fluffy, and come with a side of honey butter. I literally would have bought this honey butter from Sweet Cheeks if they sold it on site.
As you can see, you don’t go to Sweet Cheeks Q for the pristine china dishes. You go for the greasy comfort food literally served on a tray, and it speaks for itself.
I got the Berkshire Pulled Pork Sandwich, which came on a bulkie roll with pickles and onions. It comes without sauce, but each table is fully equipped with a BBQ sauce, spicy jabanero sauce, and a tangy vinegar sauce. I really enjoyed my hearty sandwich, opting to switch off each bite with either the vinegar or BBQ sauce.
Above is the Berkshire Pulled Pork Tray. All trays come with one “hot scoop” and one “cold scoop,” along with the usual pickles and onions. Pictured here is the hot potato salad and cold collard greens. I’m not a fan of collard greens, but I loved how they were presented in a little blue mug.
All in all, Sweet Cheeks Q is great for some filling comfort food. You definitely will walk away feeling like maybe you should start training for a marathon or something because you’re literally that full, but then you’ll probably go shopping instead like we did. Shopping is cardio after all, right?
