I’ve already recommended Red Bones to several friends.
My husband ate at Red Bones frequently when he was on the faculty at Prospect Hill Academy.
Everything about Red Bones was awesome!
Waitress was great!
We will go again to Red Bones. Also we never felt rushed.
Good food and attentive service
We always enjoy Redbones. If you like (love) BBQ, you really cannot go wrong. Yum, delicious. Just don't worry about the calories.
Great gluten free service!
Great meal. Nothing fancy but tasty. We are downstairs which had a fun vibe.
Being a lover of Texas beef ribs, and having experienced the real thing in Austin Texas, this place was a total let down. The ribs were skimpy and dry. This veggie rice was sticky and cold, and the biscuits were hard and cold. Very disappointing as my Sister had raved about this place years back and I never got the chance to try it until now. If beef ribs are your "thing", don't waste your time.
It is always a great pleasure to eat at Redbones. Perfect meat, good beer selection, delicious sides, very friendly and cozy ambience. It is definitely a go-to place for us whenever we crave bbq. I’ve had their pulled pork and beef brisket so far and they were 12 out of 10!!
Great food, great drinks and a fun atmosphere. Thanks!
The food and service is always great. It was a very busy Saturday night so conversation at a table of six was a bit of a challenge. Baby back ribs, BBQ beans with burnt ends, brisket, all outstanding. Don't forget the corn fritters!
We did the tourist thing in the Boston area on Labor Day weekend with the kids. I stumbled across this place as a kid-friendly option that was close to our hotel. The food was delicious, with huge portions. I seldom find really tasty collard greens here in the northeast but theirs were excellent. My only complaint is that the downstairs floor of the restaurant is extremely dark, which honestly would have been fun if we were just out for a date or something but was a little challenging with two little kids.
Great BBQ for Boston. Been around for 30 plus years and has stayed busy. Make reservations.
We love to go to Redbones, but we were hopeful that since we made a reservation, we would be seated downstairs, which is less noisy. However, we were crammed upstairs which was noisy..and crowded because there was a roof leak, so some tables were not being used.
Great food , excellent service ! Love redbones ! Never disappoints
Delicious food. Good service, Will be back.
We enjoyed ourselves. It was what we expected. Everything was very good
BEST BBQ IN BOSTON
Food is always good here, but for some reason my chicken BBQ sandwich did not taste as good as I remember it. I wish I had gotten the brisket, which both of my adult kids got and loved. Our waiter was timely and efficient, but not particularly engaging. Totally fine all around. Place was packed by the time we left.
Great bbq place. Down to earth. Big portions. Good sides. Vinyl table cloths. Good beer selection. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Get the beignets!
Always a great spot, terrific food, typically good service they just missed this time. Nevertheless their food doesn't disappoint.
First time at Redbones and can hardly believe how good it was. Great service, immense portions and delicious food. Can hardly wait to go back! Highly recommend.
Best BBQ place definitely in Boston
This is the first time I had been back in years and it hasn't changed a bit. Absolutely fabulous food and worth the 1 1/2 drive to get there...
This is a good restaurant, the food is very good, I totally recommend it
Fantastic food! Friendly service! The coconut cream pie is to die for!
In town from NYC. Excellent food and service accommodating.
Best BBQ in Boston!!
We went with our toddler girl that loved the brisket! We always enjoy going to Redbones, the food is great and our waiter Christina was also fantastic!
I first went to redbones in ~1990. It was reliably excellent then. There was always a long wait to get in, especially on a weekend night. The hush puppies were a favorite treat. In 2019, not so much. All the food, including the hush puppies was served quickly, but at room temperature. The collard greens, another former favorite, were disappointing: over cooked and underflavored. The special sausage was a standout, spicy and delicious as was the mustard that accompanied it. I would not go back.
The beef ribs are incredible, makes me come back every time!
The location is convenient, there is a pleasant “buzz” and great music, and the food is outstanding (the brew is very good, too). The only thing, really, that detracts from the overall experience is the service, which generally is indifferent, at best.
The food here is spectacular. Very authentic. Large portions for an amazing price. The dining room itself is very unclean/dingy which is fine for a BBQ place but not to this level. The table was sticky. Our drink glasses were sticky. Our server was incredibly slow. We were his only table when we got there and we had to hunt him down two times to place our order (drinks and food). He didn't have much sense of urgency but when it's a slow Wednesday afternoon, perhaps be a little more prompt. He was really kind- I will say that. Very nice guy. But I would request another server if I got him again.
Good food, Southern Hospitality in Somerville form at its finest. The only drawback is that the noise level is quite high, but I think that is just because this place is a local gem and it’s frequent by customers.
The food was great! The Memphis rib is delicious and we ate a lot!
Very nice on time service was nice and attentive food as always delicious
This is a great place for authentic barbecue.
Let me start with the one drawback - it took a few minutes for our server to appear. But once he did, everything was up to Redbones consistent high standards: great food, ample portions, great value for dollar. Maye it's not down-home bar-b-cue, but it's a taste of authenticity in Somerville.
First time there. Downstairs was dark but food and service were exceptional. Will definitely be back.
Solid food, great beer list and cocktails, and always a low-key, fun time.
Great food, great vibe. Maybe could have used some notes clarifying different rib styles/textures for overseas groups (like us)
