I hadn't been to RedBones in roughly 10 years, so thanks to Tigg924 for reintroducing me to this place.
Hit this place up on a Wednesday night around 6pm. It's a good thing that we got there when we did because this place got PACKED real quick! This place is two levels. On the first floor is a bar to your left and a dining area to your right. The dining area upstairs is rather cramped. Downstairs is another dining area that is nicely spread out and another bar. The walls are decorated with cool abstract art.
Service was really nice. Our waitress was on top of things and courteous. She joked around with us. The downside - after we finished our dinner and were ordering more beers, she let us know that unless we were eating more, we would have to go to the bar. Not her fault, but hey - still kinda sucked.
Nice selection of beers here - roughly 25 taps and a cask. Assortment of local, belgian and other craft brews. Between the two of us, we got our hands on 21st Golden Doom, BBC Coffehouse Porter, CBC Darkest Night, Sixpoint Brownstone, Shakespeare Stout, and Pretty Things Jack D'or.
The food here is freaking great. It's not true down south BBQ but hell if it isn't a damn good replica! Pulled chicken was tasty, mac n cheese, beans, and garlic mashed potatoes. Turn around form when we ordered to when we got the food was damn fast too!
Overall, a nice place to pop in and get some good grub, and good beer! (1,430 characters)

Can't go wrong with Redbones! For BBQ in New England, it's superb. (66 characters)

Would go more, but their beers are always $1-$3 more expensive than they should be. excellent food. (99 characters)

Redbones has a great beer selection. They have a variety of sizes 10.5 oz-33oz. Their menu has detailed descriptions of the beers with prices listed for each serving size. Their prices are great and the staff knows how to serve beer properly. The food is great but it isn't authentic barbecue its like Tex-Mex compared to Mexican food. It is delicious but it just not the same. You can't go wrong with this place. (414 characters)

Truly one of the most over-rated places ever. Let's be sure to split this into two distinct reviews. Their beer list is nice and if you are ONLY looking for a quality beer and are standing out front. Fine, pop in and only order a beer. However, in a world of choices as a whole this place is nowhere near a great option. The BBQ claims to be authentic and isn't even close. Let's just say I asked if they had NC vinegar style sauce...... the waiter literally brought me cider vinegar. just cider vinegar. Go elsewhere for food & beer (542 characters)
