When here on a Friday night. We sat outside and had little to no wait. Only negative is, we wished they had a few heat lamps. We ordered the biscuits and honey butter and they were sinful. Definitely worth the calories. We ordered the pulled pork and chicken and they were both delicious. The service was friendly and helpful. We... More

We are always on the look out for a great place near Fenway Park. We prefer not to get gouged while enjoying tasty fare. This place fits that description. For $110 +tip our party of two couples were happy and stuffed. One key to achieving nirvana here is the addictive biscuits, which are $3 each or $10 for the Bucket... More

If you are looking for really good BBQ and sides this us your spot. Definitely get the biscuits. The difference between this place and a similar quality place in the south is that sweet cheeks can get $$$ think 20$ for a tray with meat and 2 sides. Buts it certainly is worth a stop in

I was here for dinner with friends the other night. We sat outside so we didnt have to wait long. The service was very good. The biscuits were the best that I have ever had. The pulled chicken was very good. Mac N Cheese was very good as well. I enjoyed the wedge salad. I will definitely go back.

I'll be dreaming about those tonight. But my partners in caloric crime and I also enjoyed everything else we ordered too. While they did think the fried green tomatoes were perhaps the weakest link, I (no tomato connoisseur, mind you) linked the tangy spice and crispy crust. Highlights other than the biscuits were the fried chicken, ribs, and farm salad.... More

The ribs were very tasty, but I like my barbeque firmer the ribs here fell off the bone. the sides, mac and cheese, veggie salad were on the money. But those biscuits. To die for .You can only eat one unless you're not eating anything else. They are so big you need two hands to eat one. The best I've... More

I was skeptical about finding a barbecue place in the city but this place is pretty good it has everything anything anybody wants from BBQ chicken or pork sausage link and the service is very good so if you're in the neighborhood I would suggest you stop by here and grab a bite.

Not sure how they have these great reviews. The biscuits are huge and doughy not flaky, way over priced. The ribs were ok, the pork nothing special. My whole family felt sick later. It was loud and noisy, uncomfortable seats. Parking is of course a pain. I would not return, Red Bones is way better.
