While Boston is not quite a hotbed for hearty barbecue, there are some solid options within reach for those craving a rack of ribs, and sometimes vegetarians may find themselves out at a barbecue joint, facing a menu of no-gos. For those who steer clear of sauce-laden meats, it can be tough to navigate a barbecue menu and still come away from a meal feeling as satiated as the carnivores of the group.
Often, the best options for vegetarians at meat-heavy restaurants can be found in the sides and snacks portion of the menu. If you love the flavors of barbecue but don't eat meat, give these places a shot. From grilled corn to fried green tomatoes, not to mention hush puppies, veggie burgers, and more, these restaurants all offer sound options for vegetarian diners. Dousing mac and cheese in barbecue sauce is encouraged.
Tip: Before you dine, be sure to check with the individual restaurant to find out if any of their dishes that appear vegetarian on the surface have hidden meat products or byproducts.
