It looks like a suburban barbecue spot has very quietly shuttered, at least for now.

According to several sources, Lester's Roadside BBQ in Burlington has been locked up and dark this week, with a check on the Cambridge Street restaurant indicating that there is one sign inside the door that says "Sorry, we are closed," while another sign says "Closed until further notice" while giving an email address below for more information. We sent an email out to the place and are waiting to hear back to find out what is going on with the spot.

Lester's first opened in 2005, offering such items as ribs, pulled pork and chicken, brisket, chili, sausage, macaroni and cheese, and more.

The address for Lester's Roadside BBQ is 376 Cambridge Street (Route 3A), Burlington, MA, 01803. Its website can be found at

[August 10 update: A message from the restaurant indicates that Lester's is closed temporarily and that the people behind it are finding a new location and planning to reopen soon, though the process could end up taking awhile.]
