I reserved via Open Tables for 4 & we were immediately seated upon arrival. Service was prompt for apps & meals. Baby back ribs, pulled pork sandwiches & pulled pork dinner ordered. Absolutely delicious! App portion of pulled pork was small for 4, recommend ordering 2. Dinner portions were excellent!

However, that being said, I would've given 1 or 2 more stars due to the service. First off the bat, there was so much confusion at the front door, 2 people taking names and just seating people, where as they seemed confused when we mentioned we had reservations party of 4, 7pm. One person figured it out and we were led to our table. We were then greeted by a waitress who really seemed like she wanted to be anywhere but there. I get it, but seriously, it was not crowded for a Friday night, surprisingly. She made us feel very rushed. she dropped off drinks in a rush, dropped off waters in a rush, when I had a question, she seemed put out. Then when we ordered our meals, my husband specifically ordered the Smoked BBQ Chicken dinner, with his 2 sides. Our meals came to us and she gave him his dinner which was just a Fried Chicken dinner, with sides. When he mentioned this to the waitress, she responded as if we were stupid, saying "Yeah, well we don't have the Smoked Chicken tonight," Well, don't you think you could've mentioned that to us as my husband was placing his order?? Seriously, and my husband is the nicest man (he's a head chef in another restaurant, by the way), and he just decided to take it, because everyone else had their dinners, and it was getting late (very slow service too) and he's not like that, bad karma with the kitchen to send back food. She was quick to drop off the check, didn't even ask if we wanted to see a dessert menu. I saw her and she had already changed to her street clothes. Looks like she was dying to get out of there. Yes, we will probably go back, but maybe for a lunch special, and upstairs where it has a more relaxed vibe. BTW, fried chicken was tender, and moist, but skin, which looked crispy, was really not, it was soggy, no crisp or crunch to the texture, but tasty. Collard greens very flavorful, too

Have visited several of the "top" BBQ spots in the area and none compare. This place is true over the fire BBQ. My family has visited three times in the last month it's so good. We live an hour away so that's saying something! The beef brisket is unbelievable, as are the beef ribs and Memphis pork ribs. Great selection of sides, combination plates and other non-beef/pork options too. My oldest daughter loves the catfish and my little ones the chicken and waffles. Not to mention the that bag of powdered sugar beignets to finish! Parking can be an issue as the area is very busy and parking is scarce so arrive a little early. There is a metered lot around the corner but it's hit or miss Seating is tight upstairs but very family friendly. I prefer the downstairs area as it's darker and more unique, but it can get a bit "lively" later in the evening, so keep that in mind if you're bringing little kids. If you love great BBQ, especially brisket or ribs, this place is worth a visit!

I love bringing them there for some great BBQ options. I love coming here for business or personal dinners and lunches. There is something for everyone! The downstairs space is fun, but I personally prefer the casual energy in the seating by the kitchen or at the bar.

The food was outstanding as always! The ambiance and service was great!! The fried okra was absolutely amazing, lightly breaded, no grease, fresh and flavorful. Ribs and pulled meats are out of this world!! Keep up the great work!!!

Nice beer selection and friendly staff. My third visit, from afar, left with been-here-done-that feeling. Good for large groups (6+).

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.
