Blue Ribbon BBQ Plans to Expand Its West Newton Space

It looks like a pair of barbecue joints west of Boston may be expanding one of its shops.

According to a Twitter post from Boston Herald writer @DGoodison, the West Newton location of Blue Ribbon BBQ is planning to take over the space next door, adding 37 seats if all goes as planned. The address we have been given for the space indicates that the eatery would be moving into the MAPFRE/Commerce Insurance space, which is to the left of the restaurant.

In addition to its West Newton shop, Blue Ribbon BBQ also has a location on Mass. Ave. in Arlington.

The address for Blue Ribbon BBQ in West Newton is 1375 Washington Street, West Newton, MA, 02465, while the address for the space that it is hoping to expand into is 1379 Washington Street. The website for Blue Ribbon is at
