Redbones is very similar to a place called Dinosaur BBQ that Rochester and Syracuse BAs know well. In terms of beer section, the edge goes to Redbones. An interesting and rotating selection of 24 draughts keeps the BAs interest peaked. Very good selection of bottled micros and Belgians as well as cans of some "classics" like Schlitz and Genesee. Last visit I especially enjoyed the Concord IPA, Rapscallion Blessing and the Stoudts Abbey Triple. The food is outstanding. The bar staff is very friendly and accommodating providing samples of beers and food! I was curious about how the jerk pork tenderloin was last Thursday and the reply was: want to try it. Very cool. One of my favorite places in the Boston area. Ill be back here again and again. Highly recommended. Cash and personal checks only. No credit cards!

Loved this place. Went here for dinner while visiting the Boston area. The atmosphere is absolutely crazy, We sat in the basement which is painted black with wild colorful paintings covering the walls. Most or all of them have aliens in them.Everything about this place says fun. Quality was excellent all around. Service was friendly and reasonably fast. We ate early but by the time we got our food the place was full and people were waiting to get in by the time we left. Beer selection was outstanding and the food was really really good. I had ribs and they were the best I've had since we started this vacation and were as good as what we get at our favorite BBQ Beachwood on the west coast. My husband had the brisket and it was melt in your mouth. I really enjoyed their beans which were black eyed peas in a savory sauce. The prices were a little high but not bad considering it's in the big city. We would go back again and again if we ever come to Boston again.
