    Linwood Grill and Barbecue: Meat Lover's Paradise

    This restaurant near Fenway Park attracts baseball fans and locals. The smell alone will having you running in the door. Ribs and pulled pork, and several seafood dishes, beckon - but be warned, the portions are very generous! There is a semi-open kitchen where you watch the chefs at work, and a fake wood-burning stove with a TV showing a roaring fire!

    Everything I've had here has been delicious, but I'm disappointed they took the smoked goat off the menu. It was great, but so hot it took awhile to recover.

    They offer a different vegetarian dish each day.

    There is an outdoor patio for dining in nice weather.

    Attached to the restaurant is The Linwood, a long-standing landmark in the Boston rock scene, showcasing local, and some national, bands. It is currently being refurbished, which is kind of sad, as its true 'dive bar' feel was so much a part of the character.

    Favorite Dish: The burnt ends dinner is my hands down favorite. Juicy brisket, smothered in KC-style barbecue sauce, cooked overnight then shredded. With sides of mashed red bliss potatoes and collard greens, it is a feast, but make sure you wear expandable clothing!
