East Coast Grill - Skip if You Like Barbecue

CambridgeFoodie | Jun 24, 2008 05:51 PM

So I finally made it to the East Coast Grill to try their highly recommended (by CH) burnt ends sandwich tonight.

An extreme disappointment...If I were to give it a BBQ grade, I’d rate it as a gentlemen's pass (B-/C+). The East Coast Grill might be great for seafood, but there's no reason to drop by for its barbecue. Chris Schlesinger's “walk on water” barbecue holiness seems to be created by an excellent publicist.

To gauge my taste/experience in barbecue...I dine on barbecue on average 1 - 2 times a month (much to my physician's chagrin) and feel that the ribs at Uncle Pete's are true heaven and the brisket at Blue Ribbon is incredible.
