“Good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

We had the brisket, pulled pork, and fried pickles and it was great. Good selection of sauces. The place is a bit crowded and noisy.

“Tasty but limited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

The food was great but the challenge with this place is the limited options. You need to go here with a BBQ lover group. We had a few vegetarians among us and they had a hard time ordering.

Tasty barbecue. Fun casual vibe. Can be a little loud, but isn't that what you want in a bbq joint? .

“Good Fried Pickles and Beer Selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

For the north is a good BBQ place. The fried pickles, pulled pork, and ribs are great. You can pass on the mac and cheese, its not up to the same quality as the BBQ.

“Best BBQ in Boston Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My wife and I have been coming to Redbone's since it opened. This is hands down the best dry barbecue in Boston, with stand out dishes being the beef ribs, the memphis ribs, fried catfish, pulled pork, and the brisket. For those with less of an appetite, the "perfect" ribs are a good option The rotating beer selections are superb - go ahead and spin the wheel in the bar if you can't decide! The staff is friendly and fun - the only caveat is that they do move tables quickly and the food comes out very fast, so pace your order if your party wants to linger a bit. It can get very crowded on weekends.
