The Best Barbecue around since 1987. Come see why. 857-254-8894

When Redbones Barbecue opened in 1987, a BBQ restaurant of its authenticity was virtually unheard of north of the Mason Dixon Line. Years later, with BBQ joints popping up everywhere, Redbones still stands out because of the fun, the food, and the wide range of services. Customers and staffers alike share the spirit of Redbones, where community rather than commercialism is the order of the day.\n\nThe Fun - In the dining room, there is a constant flow of customers, waitstaff, music and food. Nostalgic photographs of BBQ days gone by, autographed photos of rhythm and blues greats, and...

"Abandon all vegetarianism, ye who enter" this "affordable" late-night "house of meat" in Somerville, where the "young, pleasant" staff brings out more "fabulous" BBQ "than even a football team would know what to do with"; it's "not formal", but the "rustic" bi-level setup "suits the menu and clientele perfectly", as evidenced by the "substantial waits"; P.S. if you "can't decide" on something...

Redbones Restaurant Review

Well before Davis Square was a magnet for hipsters, artists and the coffeehouses they favor, it was a mecca for fans of down-home barbecue and beer connoisseurs.
