On Friday, after a great fall afternoon at the park, JJ and I stopped at a restaurant called Boston Butz, a place specializing in Southern Pitt BBQ & homemade pizzas. I admit that we weren't really looking for a BBQ place, but come on, the name alone makes you wanna learn more, right? Well, we had to check it out and we were pleasantly surprised to find a hometown place with good food and friendly service!
Boston Butz's is located in Ross, OH - which is very close to the Hamilton and Oxford areas of Southwest Ohio. Here's a picture of the outside of the restaurant:
After perusing the menu, we started off with an appetizer called Boston Fries. I'm a potato gal, so with out even knowing what came on the fries, I was game to give them a try. Now, when these bad boys came out, I was really happy - crispy fries, with provolone and mozzarella cheese melted on top and crunchy bacon bits too! Take a look - Yummy...
We ordered a small, but both commented on how we could have eaten a large! Anyways, on to the BBQ sandwiches. The menu offers everything from pulled pork, chicken, & beef, ribs, pork chops, and pizza's.
I went with the traditional Pulled Pork Sandwich (with the Mild Sauce) and a side of cole slaw. JJ ordered a sandwiched called "The Porker" (with Classic Sauce), which made us both laugh. "The Porker" is tender pulled pork on a bun with their signature hot slaw. Both sandwiches were very good. I thought the Classic sauce was better than the Mild sauce.
Overall, we enjoyed a great afternoon relaxing on the patio of this fun restaurant. I make no claims to be an expert in BBQ, but Boston Butz is a cool locally owned & operated business that had good food & good service. Check it out sometime if you're ever in Ross, OH.
PS - Get the Boston Fries, you won't be disappointed!!
