Mighty Quinn's Barbeque May Be Expanding to Boston

by Marc Hurwitz

An award-winning group of BBQ spots based in New York may be coming to Boston.

According to a post from QSR, Mighty Quinn's is looking to franchise, with Boston being one of its targeted cities along with Washington D.C. and Philadelphia (New Jersey is also mentioned as well). Currently, a dozen locations can be found in New York City, Westchester County, and New Jersey, as well as three outlets overseas, with the original being found in the East Village of Manhattan.

Mighty Quinn's has received high praise since debuting in 2012, including New York Times food critic Pete Wells giving the East Village location a 2-star rating a few months after it opened, calling the pulled pork "staggeringly good."
