a message from us


After 4 years of service, we have decided to relocate to Brookline, MA. Regardless of how hard we try to sound positive, we are having mixed feelings about this decision.

It was back in 2014 when we first opened WOW Barbecue in Malden. By opening this restaurant, we had evolved beyond a simple food truck. Malden was a milestone for us; we hold this location and its neighbors dearly in our hearts.

It’s been a wonderful few years. Thank you for joining us.

Today, we look out on a very different Malden today as we announce our departure. Change is not bad, but we simply have to be somewhere else at the moment.

WOW Barbecue will continue to be it’s creative, welcoming, goofy self. Please do visit us at 320 Washington St, Brookline, MA, 02445; we would love to have you for lunch or dinner. Our goal has always been to serve food that invited and rewarded engagement, with a style of service and a setting that does the same.

Oh, and yes, there will continue to be food. There will be more food. 

183 Salem St will be home to a new restaurant later this year - the people taking over will be doing something very different, but the address will be in good hands, we assure you.

So, see you in Brookline.

Life itself is the proper binge.
